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.

Who at Subaru of America?

Will try to find the name, she was great. Really does not matter though. My rep said they all take calls and discuss, as a team, how and if they should help. My subaru service rep gave me the number. I had severe damage at 67k miles with good records of all oil changes etc. I was overly cordial in my initial call and asked for help in a formal letter with all supporting service records. Took 3 days for them to make the decision They will call the rep at the dealership during that time for details. Be nice to them as well, it helped to have the service rep on my side. Good luck.
