Check for a rusty handle. If you push the handle forward then try the power unlock then open the door with handle. I have been finding that the handle becomes rusty and does not return all the way when released. Therefore not allowing the locks to disengage. Hope this helps.

97 Subaru Legacy, 142,000 miles. Temp Guage


Sounds like the Coolant is not full and has a air bubble. It is very important to have the system filled complete. That would be the first step.Good luck and have a great day.

Replace tail light legacy


In side the trunk behind the light you need to fix is a small access panel. Just open and replace bulb. Very simple and straight forward. Good luck and have a great day.

Can not get in the trunk. The handle is broken.


Legacy, right? Can you tilt the backseats' backrests forward? like when you want to transport something big in the trunk... I suppose the sedan has this similarly to the station wagon. 
Use a pocket torch to look for the lock body from inside and there should be a small button or better a lever that you have no clue what it is there for, right? try to push it or pull it from ech side untill it opens. 
It is actually there to prevent transporting people in the trunk against their will(unlike the movies, where it is possible).

Feel free to send any feedback

1997 subaru outback legacy overheating


I hate to tell you this but the guy isn't returning your calls because the head gasket is blown and he probably knew it.
As for the 1990... have you checked the water pump for leaks? (front/ driver's side on the bottom of the engine) My guess is that it's faulty and unfortunately, it's behind the timing belt.
Both of these repairs will be a pretty penny.
Good luck!

I have a 95 Legacy Wagon and by the shop manual the therostat sets on the bottom of the water pump. It is accessed from the bottom of engine by 2 bolts that hold the lower hose on.
