If you bought this from a garage id take it back straight away. I wouldnt say thats the turbo id say internal engine issues there bud.

that'll be no.3 then..if oil is in the air intake pipes,it normally indicates a holed piston..ideally need the take the engine apart and investigate..a single piston can be replaced or you can do all 4,the chioce is yours,the tubby will also need investigating too...as Gareth posted above,was it dealer or private?..also did you let the car warm up before giving it a bootfull??...if you didn't warm it up and booted it from cold,you'll not have a leg to stand on,so to speak..

Re: hi iam new here have a problem

gaskets can be got from main stealer or here :- Subaru Impreza Turbo Parts, Tuning, Spares & Accessories


main stealer will give you the option of a single gasket....the head will come off with engine in situ can can be a bit tight..

Re: hi iam new here have a problem

your choice...if you do an engine swap,make sure it's one from the same year otherwise you'll have problems etc..
