SOURCE: Location of knock sensor, 1997

stand at the front drivers tire, Peer over just below where the throtle cables connect onto the side of the throtle body, Now look straight down. It's that round black thing bolted to the top of the motor with a wire coming out over to a connector under the intake manifold.

SOURCE: Where is the knock sensor located on a 2.5 Subaru outback 1998?

directly below the throttle body on the drivers side of the engine block. Has a white connector attached to a single black wire lead. I had to remove the black plastic piece that connects to the throttle body and the air filter housing, in order to see/get at it. Easy fix once you find it. Haynes manual shows it in a different location, so don't confuse yourself looking at the diagram.

SOURCE: check engine light on in 2001 subaru outback - car

If the light was flashing when it came on, then it means your engine is misfiring.

A solid light can mean anything from a loose/faulty gas cap to a transmission issue.

This light comes on when the computer detects a fault of some sort in its diagnostic tests. If it keeps detecting this issue, the light will remain on. If the light turns off, then it has detected that the issue may no longer be present.

In order to find out what the exact reason was for your light, You need to have your car computer scanned to retrieve the code that the computer would have stored when the light triggered. Most garages will do this free of charge. The code will tell you what may have caused the light to initially turn on.

Subaru 97 speed sensor trouble code p0500 not passing admissions.. what part to I buy and where is the sensor located?


There are actually two Vehicle Speed Sensors (VSS). I'm going to assume you have a 2.5 liter engine and an automatic transmission.

The Vehicle Speed Sensor 1 (output shaft rotation sensor) is mounted to the extension case (from the outside of the case). The sensor outputs a pulse signal which is transmitted to the TCM where it is converted to vehicle speed.


The transfer clutch drum is connected directly to the rear wheel driving propeller shaft. Vehicle speed sensor 1 on the AWD model detects rear-wheel speed.

Vehicle Speed Sensor 2 provides vehicle road speed information to the ECM. The ECM uses this data to properly determine ignition and fuel delivery curves. The sensor consists of a reed switch and magnetic rotor turned by the speedometer cable.


One rotation of the magnetic rotor opens and closes the reed switch four times, producing a digital signal which is converted to vehicle speed by the ECM. The sensor operates whenever the vehicle is moving with ignition ON. As the transmission rotates, the speed sensor sends a pulsed on/off signal to the ECM.

The speedometer uses VSS 2 for it's signal.

Hope this helps (remember to rate this answer).

1998 legacy outback. engine light comes on & goes off sporadically, when on, it hesitates at takeoff & runs rough at low speed.


Knock sensor has gone bad most likely. I had the same problem with the same car and replaced the knock sensor. Fixed the problem. Very common with Subarus. It's an inexpensive part but it requires patience and small surgeon's hands to get to it and replace it. Lots of how-to articles on line.

I need to check Vehicle Speed 1 to sort out a speedo problem, but do not know where the 2 wires lead to. This for a Subaru 1997 Outback


I assume you're referring to the Speed Sensor, and the 2 wires coming from the Speed Sensor? Is your speedometer totally inop, or is it giving improper, or sporadic indications? I'm not familiar with Subaru, but wiring for speed sensors are generally the same for most 96 and newer vehicles. That 2-wire harness typically runs to a disconnect... to the PCM... maybe another disconnect... speedometer. If you have access to schematics, or wiring diagrams, you would need to obtain a few plug and pin numbers, locate the components, then trace a few wires. I'd suggest first running a diagnostic in order to obtain any possible fault codes, and use that as a good starting point.

2000 Subaru Outback Wagon (100K miles) with P0420 Code


I do not know for sure if this is the problem you are having, But, I have noticed that from 95 up to 2002 I have seen a lot of PO420 codes that have been just the sensor. I do not know if it was a weak sensor or just that program telling it that it is below threshold. I did notice that if the vehicles are run for a long trip at highway speed it goes out. I wish you luck and have a great day.
