1992 Subaru legacy wagon will not shift up from first gear. it is an AT.


run the fault but all you describe is operated from the VSS sensor ( vehicle speed sensor)
it tells the cruise control the vehicle speed , tells the TCM the vehicle speed so that ratios can be changed, activates the speedo,and will report with a check engine light to report a transmission problem
run the fault codes first

How do i locate the knock sensor in a 1996 subaru gtb wagon engine


It is underneath the intake manifold. If you look straight down from the throttle body, you will see a sensor with one wire coming out and a bolt going through the middle of it, that is the knock sensor.

Weak throttle response 92 subaru legacy


I would have have the TPS (Throttle Position Switch) tested, it sends a signal to the ECM of where the position of the throttle is so the ECM can determine how much fuel and air and spark to give to the engine. Have you replaced the spark plugs, fuel filter, air filter, spark plug wires? Have the coil tested also to see if it is putting out enough spark. Do you have any Check Engine Light coming on?

Throttle position switch. how much for the part? is it easy to repllace?


This sensor sends the ECU an output signal which corresponds to the opening of the throttle valve. Using this output signal, the ECU precisely controls the air/fuel ratio during acceleration, deceleration and idling. The TP sensor and the throttle switch are combined as part of an assembly. The switch signal turns ON only when the throttle is opened to the idle position or at Wide Open Throttle (WOT) acceleration.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

Fig. 5: Lift off the throttle position sensor
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disconnect the throttle sensor electrical harness.
  3. Place a matchmark on the throttle position sensor and throttle body mounting surface, so that during installation, the sensor can be properly aligned.
  4. Remove the 2 screws securing the throttle sensor to the throttle body assembly.
  5. Remove the throttle sensor by pulling it in the axial direction of the throttle shaft.
  6. Remove the throttle sensor O-ring and discard.
To install:
  1. Using a new throttle O-ring, install the throttle sensor, aligning the matchmarks. Install and hand-tighten the retainer screw.
  2. Connect the throttle sensor electrical harness.
  3. Connect the negative battery cable.

Hope this help (remember rated and comment this). Good luck.

1992 Subaru Liberty wagon - cannot lock front passenger door.


Check the alignment with the door pin. Might be out of adjustment and will not let the door close all the way. That will cause the lock to not be operable. Good luck and have a great day.
