Question about 1995 Subaru Legacy

1 Answer

Where to begin with electircal problems?

A brief flicker of internal lights and the car simply died. This was fortunately at the end of a 20 mile trip. Where do I begin to troubleshoot this problem? Battery seems fine - would this be a fuse? or even an alternator? Not sure where to start. Any help is appreciated.

    what else is on the same fuse as the internal lights ?, most of the time theres more than one other electrical device on the same circuit , trace that & your probelm will be there .

I have a 2001 Hyundai Accent 1.6L. While driving it wil die, there is no spark but all the fuel pressure is fine. After it cools down it starts and drives for about 5-10 miles then dies again.


This sounds to me like an intermittent crankshaft sensor problem. Did your CHECK ENGINE light come on? Crankshaft sensors sometimes flicker this way before they completely die, sometimes they don't. I think you may have a flickerer. Have the code checked at your local Advanced Auto or Auto Zone. The part is only about $30.00. GOOD LUCK.

Oil light flickers on and off however dipstick is showing full of oil. Suggestions? Thanks....


One of two things may be happening. If the oil light stays off until the engine warms up and then begins to flicker on/off when you are idling & in gear [say at a stop sign] then you could actually have low oil pressure due to worn internal engine parts, OR, you could have a faulty sending unit that is reading the pressure incorrectly [usually low] and turning on the light. The best way to find out for sure is to have someone remove the sender and thread in an oil pressure test gauge to check and see exactly how much oil pressure you really have when the engine is first started and fully warmed up. You could just simply replace the sender and if the flickering is gone after that then you should be ok but if the flickering continues then odds are you actually do have low oil pressure. I would strongly recommend having the oil pressure tested for peace of mind then you'll know for certain what is happening. Engine bearings don't survive very long without sufficient oil pressure so you should have it checked out asap.

1996 Plymouth Voyager dies after driving 20 miles


Hi I am Vortash i suggest that you spray all your electrical connections plugs etc with a switch cleaner fluid .. Not wd40 .. but an actual electrical contact cleaner . Check your Battery Earth connections and battery terminals and all fuses and relays spray with the cleaner also . Check the engine to body earth strap and your main ECU plug .. hope this helps regards Vortash

Oil pressure on a 2004 5.3 liter silverado at idle is around 20


The pressure to be most concerned with is the reading in gear at idle with engine warmed up...Low end really should not be below 20. If pressure wanders, change the sending unit and check actual pressure with a mechanical gauge if necessary. The age and quality of your oil, as well as temperature all play a part in pressure, as well as internal wear from time & miles of use. If pressure changes with rpm, that is normal. 40psi is good while driving.
need more info just ask.
