Yes, you have to do that. Your turbo heats up to around 900 degrees Celsius under hard driving conditions. When you shut off the car, You suddenly take away the heat source and the ambient temperature falls to around 95 degrees Celsius (the normal operating temperature for a Subaru that has been driven hard). This causes the turbine housing to experience ...

Not to be contrary to @JoshCaswell, but I'm seeing as how the left front/right rear are the same motor, as is the right front/left rear. Using the numbers he gave, I'm seeing the following as alternate parts numbers: FL/RR: 61188FE001, 61188FE002, 61188FE021, 61188FE022, 61188SA011, 62113FC100, 62188SA000, 62188SA001, 62188SA002, 63113FC100 FR/LR: ...

Based on the parts diagrams and lists on Opposed Forces, you are out of luck as far as using a rear door's motor. Each of the four doors has its own part number; the front right's number is 61188SA001 whereas the front left is 61188SA010. On the other hand, if you see the usage list for 61188SA001, this part seems to have been used on a wide range of S11 ...

While painting a bumper at home is always possible, you would need to: Prepare the surface correctly: clean off the products used to de-mold the plastic, sand the part if there is a granular relief motive. Apply the appropriate primer. Specific primers may be used for the paint to stick to the plastic correctly, and even better primers that have some flex ...

As they say, you need to let the turbo spool down as it spins excess of 100,000 RPM while doing this oil is used to lubricate it, if you shut it down immediately there are high chances of oil residue forming on the turbo lines and clogging it up. That said, most modern turbochargers do not need(while driving in the city) such cooling down period as such ...

Yes, otherwise parts of the turbo such as bearings can go bust and will need replacing. After hard driving, just drive your car slowly/calmly for a few miles. This will let the turbo cool down and because the engine is still on, the various turbo parts will still be lubricated whilst the turbo is cooling down. The following post may be of some use: ...

In the UK we have tyre fitters that specialise in Part Worn tyres. If you have similar in your local area then it would be worth asking them to measure your remaining tread and see if they have a suitable replacement tyre instead of having to buy a full set. That's certainly what I would try first.

What I said over here might apply to your situation: ... a mismatched tire won't break your drivetrain immediately. It's more subtle than that: at least one differential will be loaded all of the time and at all operating speeds. So, instead of managing the different rotation speeds in a relatively low speed turn, you'll be cooking your ...

I'm an ASE Master certified tech, and have been doing this for 25 years. The likely cause is not the coil or plugs or the air cleaner but the fuel filter. It is probably blocked so the engine can't get the fuel it needs to run correctly. It is a common problem with Subarus. I would change the filter and go from there.
