Timing Belt Lower Idler Pulley

Post by Behemoth2008 on Mon Jul 15, 2013 8:19 pm

I believe I found the reason that my 2001 IMPREZA L refuses to start. I pulled the timing belt cover today and discovered that the lower timing belt idler pully has blown up completely. Does anyone know the subaru part number to this pulley by any chance or have an extra laying around Very Happy ? I found the part on subarugenuine parts but there are 4 options for the idler pulley. The one that I need is here:

If I just go to Garcia, do you think they'll know what I'm talking about? Embarassed

I usually go to subarupartsforyou.com first before anywhere else cause they supply the part numbers and is easier to navigate

I wonder if this is really the cause to all the headache... or if something else is horrible wrong secondary to the stripped bearing.

I think this is it. Hopefully the heads are ok but I bet this is the culprit. You said it turns but doesn't start. You have fuel and spark. My guess would be cam position sensor, compression, or timing belt.

So long as its the same # it should be fine I would imagine. Is it a legit Subaru part though?

The part numbers in the description of the NSK one match up, so it should be fine.
