Presumably the battery died long ago, and this is long since fixed, but it sounds like the relay contacts are welded and needs to be replaced. Its often called "the solenoid".

Why does my 1991 subaru squeaks then cuts out for a sec.

If it's happening while driving and no brakes applied it's probably a belt causing the noise. There's a product available in most local auto shops that you can use to lubricate the belt. I think the actual name is "stop squeak" but I'm not positive.
If it's squeaking while breaking you may need new breaks or your breaks may be too tight. Another product exists for breaking squeals available in your local auto shop

sounds like your timing may be off, or have a crank shaft postion sensor failing, when it cuts are you losing spark completely? do you have a fuel pressue gauge? whats the pressure? also you could try running it with the map sensor unplugged and see if the condition improves

My 1989 subaru legacy will run for 5-10mins and then starts running rough and will cut out what could this be i have replaced the the crank angle sensor Thanks finn

I would look into either the EGR system, or the idle air control valve. It is usually a clue at which point a car begins to act up, since after about ten minutes the car is usually warmed up, it would lead me to look towards the hot idle circuit of the idle air control valve. I hope this info helps.

Turn The Key To The Acc Option for about 30 seconds then see if it starts first try if it does change your fuel filter. If It Doesn't Start First Try Id Suggest A New Fuel Pump.
