Apparently, their is an electrically controlled, vaccuum servo located below the spare donut tire under the hood which is malfunctioning. It is connected to a lever on the side of transmission, by a cable. A temporary fix is to get the lever to move forward by hand. Jack up the car on the passenger side. Between the two transmission cross members, above the exaust pipe behind the catylictic converter, you will see the lever connected to the cable. Push lever forward towards motor to disengage rear wheels. This will allow you to travel on a hard road until you can get to a mechanic.

Where is the horn located on a 1987 subaru gl10 4wd? Horn gradually weakened and then stopped working altogather.


Well, if this is like my 93 Subaru Loyale, (2wd) there are actually two horns. Each are located just under the headlights. Absolute access to these (if the same) will require the front bumper being removed, or by pulling out the headlights.Considering the headlights need to be aligned to a specific direction, and are hard to re-position, I suggest removing the bumper instead. Your choice.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

What is the button in front of the shifter on the center console of a 1993 subaru loyale with an automatic?


Likely that button changes when converter locks up...one position is "economy" the other is a delay for power.

1987 Ford Ranger stuck in 4 wheel drive!!


Chances are the linkage for the transfer case is out of adjustment try loosening the adjuster bolt and put the 4WD shifter into the position 4WD high or low (depending upon which position it's lockup in) then lock down the adjuster bolt, try to shift out of 4wd sometimes you need to go forward and backward with the vehicle to get it out of 4wd, when you get it out of 4wd you may have to fine tune the adjustment to get it to engage and disengage smoothly it's a trial and error thing keep resetting adjuster until you get the desired effect.

Loud Lifter possibly stuck! Help please!!


The ticking lifter on the Loyale is a common problem. There's a small o-ring between the cam tower and the head that, after so many hundreds of thousands of miles, would "fail" (not to a dangerous point) and the lifters would be partially starved of oil. It's not THAT serious... they can go hundreds of thousands of more miles like that. If you replace that o-ring, replace it with a spring reinforced ring so it doesn't fail. Those can be found at wwwdotthepartsbindotcom. As for the Legacy... those early 2.5s were cruddy. I've seen alot of them throw rods, lock up WAY before they should have. Best bet would be to replace it with a slightly underpowered but bullet-proof early model Legacy EJ22 or go with a newer EJ25. I would just go with the 2.2L.
