Questions & Answers
I have a 2000 Subaru forester its losing water and
first have a compression test done to know for sure if head gaskets
from your description I think not as it would be overheating all the time
if you are running hot all the time and the radiator is original the cores could be blocking up so a replacement radiator would be a good move
next check out the cat converters because if they are blocking the exhaust , the hot /cold on off readings could be from them failing and blocking the exhaust

2000 subaru legacy stalls,jumpy, delayed when i give it gas
Oil leaking from old valve cover gaskets is common on Subaru engines. Once the plugs get oil on them it's best to replace the gasket, wires and plugs. Since that's been done, the next step would be a scan of live data to see what fuel trims and oxygen sensors and MAF sensor readings are. Also, a fuel pressure test. Until you do that, you really don't know what's going on. Don't replace any more parts until you get it diagnosed.

Where is the fuel pump reset on a 2000 subaru forester
No such device. It sounds like you are not getting fuel. Try this:
* disconnect the battery for about 30 seconds. This will reset the ECU, which causes it to re calibrate the engine management.
Check if the ECU is throwing any sort of error code.
Your fender bender may have damaged some wiring, or the repair may have left something disconnected.

How to fit rear outside door handle
What you do is open door and remove the door insert, undo every screw and then with a screw driver take care not to scratch the paint work, so wrap the end of the screwdriver. Up with the hanky ( the blade end) then gently prise open gently the insert , then once you have taken the insert off , remove the plastic only around where the door handle should be, you then reach in and feel for the door handle and around it you should feel a couple of nuts , they should be either a 8mm or 10mm spanner, undo the nuts and when you take out the nuts. Then from the outside wriggle the door handle until it half comes out and then disconnect all the rods that go to your inner door handle and the rod to your door handle!!. To replace it is reverse of what you just done but with the new handle
