What else could this be.


Asked by Mar 01, 2016 at 07:18 PM about the 2006 Subaru Outback 2.5i Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

service advisor came up with the Variable value timing unit and the oil control switch replacement because the car was running a bit rough.  The car also would shift with a clunk and would vibrate while sitting at a stop sign.  Drove a way and seemed alright and then couple of days later it started up again.
