    Anyone work servicing subarus??

    Got a 2005 subaru legacy 2.5gt and its way overdue for maintenance. Wondering if anyone works at a dealership and can get me a good price on service, or if someone wants to come do the work for a case of beer and cash, etc.

    right around 64k miles and im not sure exactly what needs to be done. Im going to change the oil and filters myself in the next few days but i definitely need the plugs changed out. Maybe flush the tranny fluid etc. Like i said im really unsure what kind of service i should be getting done.

    We used to change the plugs ourselves on our vehicles but subaru said something about having to pull the motor to get to the spark plugs and i just dont have the tools etc.

    The only thing they remove is the intake box, battery, and wiper reservoir to get to the coils. Let me know if you need help shouldnt be no more then a 30min process

    Spark Plug removal

    Drivers side

    1. Remove Battery 10mm nuts

    2. Remove Coolant washer fluid tank 10mm bolts

    3. Loosen 12mm bolt located on coil pack (it doesn’t come out its attached to the coil pack)

    4. Insert 5\8ths spark plug socket with 3 inch extension into plug hole.

    5. Now attach ratchet to extension, loosen plug so that the extension can be turned with your fingers.

    6. Remove ratchet from extension and remove plug.

    7. Gap new plug to appropriate gap (in my case they are gapped down to 28)

    8. Reverse Process.

    Passenger Side

    1. Remove intake

    2. Remove intercooler pipe (you may not have an intercooler pipe) (you may even be able to do it without removing the pipe if you do have one)

    3. Repeat steps 3 through 8.

    Good Luck

    alright well what about everything else for the 60,000 mile service?

    I went up to mastro or whatever, the old bob dance, and they said $653 but they do "everything"

    Frankly I dont have $650 bucks laying around....

    No where near that price,
    Oil and filter = 35$
    Transmission fluid = 40$ (depending on what you buy)
    Sparkplugs = 25$
    roughly around 100$ bucks? does that sound like a ballpark figure for yah?

    ^yea the little brochure says stuff like checking belts, misc bolts and ish. Power steering fluid, diff fluid, scan comp, etc. Bunch of random stuff that i guess i could go without haha

    I could def handle 100$ especially since it sounds like i can do most of that ish myself. Im not an idiot when it comes to mechanics, just challenged when it comes to tools.

    I personally would not take it to Mastro. I have had some bad experiences there such as them not changing the oil on my WRX when i took it there to get an oil change, them trying to do extra work on the car that did not need to be done, and the people i have dealt with there have been pretty shady.

    Thats just my experience with them, wouldn't want a fellow Subaru owner to get bad service.

    ^^^I feel the same way, they charged me $220 for the 15,000 mile service without telling me the price, never explained what they did until I had to pay and everything that was done should not have been more than $60, they deffenately like to charge for stuff that noone should get charged for.
