Yeah, I was going to suggest checking timing the old school way :)

fyi, I had to buy another car, a 2007 Subaru Impreza, nearly new by my standards, they don’t build them like they use to but at least it goes. I’ve left the year 2000 Subaru Outback Limited with the garage, they’re keen to find out what’s wrong with it. They said they may swap the ECU or the engine so I’ll let you know what they find. Thanks for your help bigBAD, have fun.

The garage fixed it; they had to change the engine in the Outback so I now have two Subarus. The problem was probably caused by a blown head gasket but we will not know for sure until they remove the heads on the old engine. The thinking is; there was a small water leak into the cylinders that gets worse as the engine heats up. They also said the bottom radiator hose was not getting hot so there’s probably a blockage somewhere. I now have to decide which car to keep, I think it will be the old Outback.
