Check the crank angle sensor. It is located under the alternator at the front of the engine.

    go to a different mechanic..they are guessing... baseline as i said ..mechanical tests of engine reciprocating components first!...then we look for fuel and spark next...powers and grounds on electrical (which controls fuel also)...has i t been raining where you live?

Car won't start


yet another subaru with a starting problem, i would start by making sure you have fuel to the motor by removing the filter hose in engine bay and turning the key on ignition then off very quickly (not when motor is hot) if fuel is there i would then try cleaning the cam and crank sensors, if they are dirty it will kill spark. If there isnt fuel it means ur fuel pump may need replaced, hope this helps.

My 99 Subaru Forester did not start. It turns over will not catch, it has gas. 2 weeks ago the same thing happened, the mechanic replaced the fuel pump and a 30 amp maxi fuse to the ECM circuit. This...


I also have a -99 Forester S turbo with the same problem. Runs like clockwork between failiures but all of a sudden engine turns but will not start. The workshop recomended fuelfilter replacement but I thaught it could have something to do with the immobilizer. what have you tried and ruled out?

The key in a friend's 1999 Forester wont turn while in the ignition, but it worked an hour before. Is it a key problem?


If you have not tried this yet. Turn the steering wheel side to side while trying to turn key. If this does not work it could be the key is worn by more than likely the lock cylender has gone bad

My 1998 Engine EJ20J hasitates, can ECU be reprogrammed or do i have to change it to higher version?


Hello,I had the same problem with my 1998 2.0 Forester,I tried a lot options:
(other spark plugs,new sparkplugcables,other ignition coil,replacing the knocksensor,another camshaft sensor,reset the ECU on a Subaru select monitor,"it doesn work with an universal scantool" using ron98 petrol instead of ron95),but no satisfiing result.
At least i bougt on E-Bay a new ECU ,an 22611AD311 in stead of the AD310,
The AD311 has an software update and now the engine runs smoother and the hasitation is practically gone.
But you can trie a reset first,you can also do it yourself,
Disconnect the both batteryclams set the ignitionswiths on with the key and push the brake for 5 seconds.Then connect the battery and try.
Good luck with it

Subaru problem


Have you checked if you have ignition on the spark plugs leads? Is petrol coming to the injectors?
