I recently took my 06 Subaru outback XT in for a head gasket

Customer Question

Hi Kevin, I recently took my 06 Subaru outback XT in for a head gasket replacement. I've been in a bit of a time battle with the shop, and it's taking longer than expected. How long is the typical time frame for a replacement procedure?

Hi . Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer. are they sending the heads out for checking and machine work?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Yeah, they keep giving me the run-around and saying that the parts are done at the machine shop, but then they're not.
Expert:  john -aka eauto replied 3 months ago.

can you verify with the machine shop..? our shop is one day for teardown one to two days at the machine shop and one day to put back together

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Okay, whatever shop they went with took a week and a half. They're finally putting my engine back together
