Do you know what happened?The previous owner overheated the engine around 88k, so the heads were warped when I bought the car. .
Yep. I'm just unlucky.Headgasket and cooling issues is rare for the H6. The 06-07 tribeca seems to have more than the outback, and it is interesting to wonder if it is related to the heater core getting plugged issue. Any which way, it's not super common. I purpose it is mostly seen in people who purchase used from dealer where the previous owner dumped it because of the problems.
No I have installed a new rad and timeing chain guide which was odd it was broken. There was a knock at idle but went away under power. Ended up being a timing chain guide/ tensioner.No cooling issues, no headgaskets issues? You have been blessed.
