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 ranging from an oil-burning smell to the engine overheating. But don’t worry, you’ve come to the right place. When it comes to quality leak repairs for Subaru head gasket, we are the name you can trust.

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. Our replacement of your Subaru cylinder head gasket ensures your car will be up and running in no time.

 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.
