The Hazard!

November 2008 - Subaru of New Zealand have been advised by FHI (Fuji Heavy Industries, the Japanese manufacturer of Subaru vehicles) on certain MY07-08 Legacy, MY08 Impreza WRX and MY09 Forester XT models with the 2.5 turbo engine that the turbo charger oil supply pipe may have been misaligned during the assembly process. In some circumstances, a misaligned oil pipe could crack causing an engine oil leak leading to the possibility of fire within the engine bay compartment. The turbo charger oil supply line is located on the drivers side of the engine bay. If the pipe is misaligned, vibration experienced during normal driving could result in a crack developing in the pipe over time, causing an engine oil leak. If leaking engine oil contacts other engine components operating at high temperatures, an engine compartment fire could result.
