2002 Impreza 2.5 TS

2002 Subaru Impreza 2.5 TS

2.5l 5sp Manual Transmission

Bought her as a mechanics special out of a Subaru dealership in Utah. Drove her back to Idaho, some coolant smell and had an oil drip halfway home. Couldn't find the oil leak or any coolant leak. Continued on and managed 25mpg.

It has been serviced around 110,132 miles and new tires around 99k

What we know so far after doing a full inspection. The oil leaking seemed to be from the grease flung out from the ripped CV boot.

This is the list of things to be fixed:

1. Spark plugs and wires

2. Driver front CV shot

3. Driver side steering bellow

4. Ball joints

5. Outer tie-rod ends

6. Leaking valve cover gaskets

7. PCV in bad shape

8. Air filter needs to be replaced.

Will be changing the rear diff, transmission and engine oil and filter over to AMSOIL before I race her.

Will also need to fix all the other stuff listed. Have some long-term items as well. Shocks/strut kits. Pull out the interior and clean it.
