Oil Leaks

Asked by May 03, 2009 at 10:14 PM about the 1990 Subaru Loyale 4 Dr STD Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have copious oil leaks at various gaskets.  I'm a novice at repairs, but willing to get my hands dirty.  Is it realistic to think I can change out my head gaskets with "normal" tools and a not so great carport?  I have had gaskets changed before - why do they fail so quickly?
