How much for a new engine for my 2010 subaru forester?
About $3500 for an re-manufactured engine... https://www.carid.com/replace/oe-replacement-engine-mpn-713g.html?singleid=23066291&url=1617115
What happened to the old engine?
We were driving it and it started chugging all the dash lights came on and it shut off . Wouldn't restart when we did get it restarted it was knocking really bad and needs a new motor .
I don't know. Did you have a mechanic check it out or did you just make an assumption? I suspect a timing belt issue which is repairable. If it is a lubrication issue or an internal mechanical failure you probably do need a new engine.
Subaru - • DOHC Interference engine, • SOHC Non-Interference engine.
The Forester has the SOHC unless it is an XT.
10,200 for dealer replaced short/long block and turbo / oil control valves - including labor and all seals, hoses and parts. I had the same happen with 67k miles. Called and wrote a letter (with supporting service docs) to Subaru of America about the situation. Tree days later they agreed to pay 50% of the repair. Now have a new engine in a 2010. Never hirts to ask, nicely.
