    My engine sometime stalls when I come off the throttle or it will go almost down to a stall and then rev up to about 6-700 revs. My speedo is not working and the check engine light comes on and off. The dealer that read the computer said it was a "Idle control system malfunction" and had no solution.

    This just started 3 days ago. I'm getting ready to replace the speedo gear in the trans and see if that fixes the problem. the reason for the check engine light is the speedo not working and the odometer not working either. I'll post if this works.

I had this problem with mine if your cable spins wen the car is moving its not the gear box end or the cable its the speed sensor in the speedo its self its very easy to fix you have to strip the speedo out of the case the sensor is only small and on the under side of the speedo the sensor is about 50 mm long and 10 mm wide change that and it should be ok
oh remember to reset your ecu

Hello,

Im a mechanic and the same thing happened to my mine. Its the speedo cable that has snapped and because there is a sensor for speed when car in motion, if it senses no speed when you are moving, the engine check light comes on and the car behaves funny. So all you need to do is to get a new speedo cable Hope that helps

Exact same thing happened to me on my impreza 1994 not sure if same but speedo stopped working check engine light came on, all u need to do is remove the lower part of the steering column, 2 push in screws in door arch and 2 screws on the lower half of the trim, look for a sat/cble wire black in colour, feel for a round raised hole on back of speedo clocks, plug cable back into it, take it for a spin befor putting trim back on, hope this helps!!

How much does it cost to fix the speedometer on a 1995 subaru impreza


Hi.

First you have to ascertain whether the problem is in the cable or the cluster. They are both separate costs.

The cable is definitely cheaper than the cluster.

Why dont my tail lights work


Hello. Under your brake pedal is a switch with a plunger on, that activates your lights when depressed. Just follow up along the pedal and you will see (probably) a white switch.Check to see if the wires have been pulled out.

95 subaru legacy had the blower quit about a week ago, had no power to the motor so i thought it was the relay. then the speedometer, tachometer, odometer, and temp gauge quit working. I tried to get home...


do you have battery power will the car turn over
there is a set of fuses in the engine compartment check these as many cars have a system that allows the car to run till the battery dies check your alternator

1995 subaru impreza looking to purchase, how reliabl is the transmission it's a manual?


very. the manual box is quite tough, as are most subaru parts. I have had a lot of imprezas and a legacy and they are quite bullet-proof except for a fuel starvation fault in hard-tuned turbo models but that due to fuel rail design and too much boost ;)

1995 subaru impreza sometimes doesn't start, check engine light is on, also brake light is on.


If you get the check engine light diagnosed tht will probably show you where the problem is. You probably have a crank sensor code and will probably need to change out the crank sensor.
