Subaru Legecy

Asked by Jul 01, 2017 at 08:29 PM about the 2001 Subaru Legacy

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Driving on the highway, everything seemed fine. Than I started to loose power
and white smoke was pouring out the exhaust. Pulled over. The car did not
stall and I actually turned it off and it restarted fine, but no power when I put it
in gear. Turned it off and waited for a tow. Tow truck operator said there was a
puddle of oil under the car. Checked the oil once home and there was still oil at
the half way mark of the dip stick. Any suggestions?

Bad head gaskets are the bane of Subaru owners. Bummer.
