Subaru Forester 2011 Premium 2.5

Asked by Jan 10, 2014 at 05:34 PM about the Subaru Forester

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Keep on topping my oil every week. What can cause it's unusual ? Oil is very low, finding
leaks. Puddle of fluid on the engine and it is  hot, the fluid. So that makes  me think it is
the engine oil leak. Am I right?

Sounds right, where is the leak located on the engine?

I see the pubble on top of the engine, Nick

Is it over to the side of the engine or located more central on top of the engine?

35

we can't locate where it comes from.

more central of the engine.

let me check into a couple things and see if I can find an idea on where it'd come from.

I also just ran a carfax on my car, and guess what? It was Subaru where I purchased my car who last changed the oil in July 2013. They can't get away from this responsibility now when I show them this paper. Just hate being lied to:(

I know what you mean, when I bought my last car I had to replace $600 in parts within the first 2 months, hazzards of buying a used car unfortunately. Well there's nothing I can think of that should be causing oil to pool on top of the engine.

I'm going to ask a stupid question, but is the oil cap on?

yes sir, it is on:) I am a lady:) but always have a few guys backing me up here concerning my car. Still wondering where the heck is this liquid comes from if not a hose from the power steering then that goes right over it (engine)

Keeping my fingers crosses that I don;t have to buy lots of parts for 20k car end of October purchase. Will keep an eye on this new* baby and let you know what's up. I really hope to call Subaru a good reliable brand.

They generally are a good brand, they've had a few flaws here and there, but I'd trust any of my Subarus over any of the other cars I've owned (Toyota or Jeep).
