1987 1.8 wont start

I have a 1987 GL Wagon that I cant get started. I changed the noisy fuel pump and filter and fuel press regulater. If I put starting fluid or gas down the TBI it will run till all the fluid/fuel has burned. I doesnt seem to get any fuel to the TBI injector. Any Ideas?

    Have this problem also, left me stranded. Feels like when trying to turn over that there was something different about the way it felt. Tried it again and it felt like it would start but doesn't. Have white smoke coming from exhaust. Not sure if it's turbo or toming belts.Other owner said they had both belts repalced?

Once the fuel pump was replaced, the chances are the released dirt particles from the fuel pump lines went to the fuel filter and clogged it. Change the fuel filter.

Could be a small amount of rust got into fuel filter from sitting empty, try changing fuel filter before worrying about the fuel pump.Filters could be partly plugged and its always smart to start with the cheaper fixes first.

undo fuel pipe where it exits the fuel pressure regulater and turn engine over , use bucket and rag to catch pumped fuel , do this for half gallon and reconnect ,, then take spark plugs out and clean with easy start (eather) and replace , should start fine now ,

Ack like it is running low on fuel while driving or stop


Crazybonezz, check your fuel pressure, should be 50 psi from the pump or 30 psi within the system 'loop'.

Where is the fuel pump located on a 1984 subaru Gl ?


I have a 1984 Gl Wagon 4WD; the fuel pump is located on the passenger side, on the frame rail under the back door, just in front of the rear wheel. It and the fuel filter are accessed by dropping the mounting plate that also serves as a protective plate. Again, this is the 4WD non-turbo EA81 engine GL Wagon; could be different on the 2WD version.
