Top-of-the-Line Subaru Head Gasket Parts, Repair, and Replacement

The Subaru head gasket is the primary engine gasket in your car. It seals oil, coolant and the combustion chamber itself. If it’s leaking, you may experience symptoms from an oil burning smell to the engine overheating. But don’t worry, you came to the right place.

SubieSmith can help you determine the health of your engine’s head gasket and see if you need a Subaru head gasket replacement. When necessary, we will perform the replacement. We will also check to see if your car needs Subaru head gasket repair. We are equipped to work on any Subaru model, be it an Outback, Forester, or Legacy.

For years Subaru used a single layer graphite head gasket. While this head gasket allowed for more cylinder head warpage, it’s rare that they go more than 120k miles without leaking oil from the bottom of the head gasket. Sometimes when the head gasket fails, it will leak coolant into the cylinder or out of the engine. This can cause the engine to overheat, making the problem worse.

When we replace the head gaskets, we use the improved design gasket. This is a multi-layered steel head gasket. These head gaskets will typically last the life of the car.

Leave the Job to the Pros

While a gasket replacement may seem like a no-brainer, it’s a task better left to the pros. Here are some reasons you can trust SubieSmith to do the job:

We do the hard work. Replacing a gasket requires removing and disassembly of your engine. Our experienced, factory-trained mechanics are trained to assemble and disassemble internal engine parts as well as to properly install a replacement head gasket. We sweat the details so you don’t need to worry about a single thing.

We prevent the problem from blowing up. Prompt action can mean the difference between an expensive repair and a relatively cheap head gasket replacement. Our technicians save you from unnecessarily costly repairs by quickly diagnosing the problem and performing necessary actions with as little downtime as possible.

We make honest recommendations. We will provide you with an accurate assessment of the urgency of your head gasket repair. If your repair isn’t urgent, we will make sure you know what to look out for as it progresses.

We work on older models. By experience, we know that certain older models like a pre-2010 Outback or Legacy or a pre-2011 Forester can be more prone to head gasket leakage. Count on us to tap on our extensive network to find the Subaru replacement parts you need.
