I recently imported a 2002 Subaru Legacy B4 and it came with a blown 100A main fuse. I replaced with a generic fuse but seems like there is a power problem which may be causing injector and cam position sensor throwing a check light for a few seconds when i run an accessories such as power windows. The check light does not stay on but just flickers for a few seconds and disappears The problem is worse at night when i switch on the lights as it causes the accelerator not to respond for a few seconds as the car refuses to take off and then the car takes off with normal power. In the afternoon without the lights it drives fine and is powerful but the problem now is that the fuel consumption is now pretty high. I do not know if it is related but the fog lights also are not working
I have a brand new car battery. One week ago I drove this car for 60 miles. No problem. I went out of town for a week. After coming back when tried to start car, nothing. Not even clicks. AAA guy came. Jump would not work. He told me perhaps my starter is bad. Would starter go out like that? Wouldn’t I get some indication that starter is going? Other strange thing, when I opened my hood after it did not start, I saw that positive terminal on my battery was disconnected and battery tie-down was taken off. Seems like somebody tried to mess with my car but ran away, perhaps because somebody saw them. My question is, do you think it could be starter? Although positive terminal was disconnected, wire was still touching the terminal.
I’m having trouble with figuring out what is wrong with this old girl. I bought her a year ago from a man claiming to be a mechanic, I’ve called him when ever something went wrong. After a few months the darn thing would need to be jumped every so often leaving me stranded. The battery had been tested and was told it was good. Then 3 months ago, my husband stared to accelerate and the power cut completely. Luckily we were right nex t to an autozone. The car would not jump start at all, we had to tow it . We tested the battery, starter and alternates. To them everything was ok, the alternator is worn but was told that it couldn’t be the cause. The battery is from 2012 (was told it was new) but again told it was fine. Now when we try to start her the hear the fuel pump click and and odd buzzing from the block, the gauge for the battery voltage drops to 8 completely draining it. We had to change the distributor for after the ‘mechanic’ took a wrench to pry it off swearing that was the problem. It has new spark plugs, fuel filter, and an oil change on top of it. I’m tired of throwing money at her, and can’t afford a new car. Any help is appreciated.
I am having an issue starting my 2001 Subaru Outback. I have replaced the battery and alternator within the past month, thinking that they were possibly the source of the problem. When I try to start the vehicle I do not hear clicking or any other distinguishable noises.
car wont start did but intermittant and would stall after a few secondsseemed to start on fuel from pump priming ,cleaned tank, flushed lines,now wont fire at all engine check light flashes constantly any ideas
After I start the car and it turns over it makes a clicking sound, I think the clicking is coming from around the belt. My car is running low on oil, could that be the cause?
I have switched all 3 fuel filters car still will run a while fine then it is like the gas don’t come threw it quit pumping gas my sending unit one of the plugs on it broke so we cut the plug and put the wires back in I think it the fuel pump or sending unit
We just replaced the bad clutch with a new one, and I let it sit Ireland idle for about 10 minutes and it started spit and spudder and then died. It hasn’t run since. What should I do?
My Forester is slow in responding to accelerator pedal. It seems gutless and I’m not getting a lot of power. My motor is hesitating at times and it feels as though it skips when cruising along. My check engine light is on. What can I do to get better performance and more power from my Subaru engine? Also, how can I get the check engine light to turn off?
I can’t figure out why my check engine light is always on. I have ran the code and it comes up the EVAP system. I have replaced the CAT both o2 Sensors, and the charcoal filter. and the light is still on.
and another thing, Sometimes My dome light will not shut off, I have to shut it off manually and when my dome light is turned off then the lights don’t flash when I arm and disarm the security system. I don’t understand
