Brisbane based WRX engine Repairer

Postby WRX2006Owner » Tue Apr 26, 2016 11:09 am

Hey Guys

I'm after somebody good yet not over pricey in Brisbane to have a look at my 06 WRX, has a potentially blown head gasket. I've been in contact with Subie Evolution but they can't fit me in for around a month

Please help

I sent it Subaru Toowong and they reckon they replaced the cooling system and it then they tried to charge me over $5000 to fix head gasket

What is "replace the cooling system"? Never heard of that repair work before. And I used to work at a stealership too. :)

And $5000 for a head gasket, no way. That's new motor territory on price right there.

Is it loosing coolant or constantly emitting white smoke out the back?

Oh yea, that's a good sign of it. You could try Kris at Rising sun Subaru if you wanted it done sooner. But they are up the coast so may be too far to make it to.
