Looks like it has a timing belt. I would get it serviced as soon as you can.


The FB25B is a DOHC engine with timing Chain.

F.O.R. that sight....I am not getting anywhere with it. Looking up parts for the 2013 Subaru Forester 2.5L engine only shows a timing belt.


Try a search for "subaru fb25b engine".


I do not see anywhere that it says it has a timing chain. This engine is a 2.5L X that has a timing belt.


Try this - click on specifications ---- modelCode=2013-FOR-DFA




Foresters have had Timing Chain engines since model year 2011.


Please show me a link so I can see, FOR has ben trying but I cannot find the info in there. When I look up 2013 2.5X Forester it comes up that it has a timing belt. I'm just interested.
