On the **Celsius** scale, the freezing and boiling points of water are exactly 100 degrees apart, thus the unit of the **Fahrenheit** scale, a degree **Fahrenheit**, is 5/9 of a degree **Celsius**. The **Fahrenheit** scale coincides with the **Celsius** scale at -40 °**F**, which is the same temperature as -40 °**C**.

A Celsius degree is larger than a Fahrenheit degree by 80%. But, Celsius sets its zero point at the freezing point of water, which is 32 degrees Fahrenheit. So The conversion always includes adding 32 when going from Celsius to Fahrenheit and subtracting 32 when going the other direction. So the two formulas are as follows: Degrees F = Degrees C times 1.8 plus 32.

Degrees Celsius = (Degrees F minus 32) times 0.5556

Now, keeping it straight as to when to add or subtract 32 is also easy. Always do it while in degrees F. So, if you are going from degrees F to Celsius, subtract that 32 first because you are sill in F sized degrees. Conversely, when going from degrees C to F, wait until you've done the multiplication to convert your degrees to F, and then add the 32. Those 32 degrees in the differential are F degrees, not C degrees.

Finally, it may be easier to remember just the 1.8 or 180% instead of that 0.5556. That's ok. Just whip out your calculator and divide 1 by 1.8, which in math is called taking the reciprocal.

Celsius IS a temperature measured in degrees, as is Fahrenheit.

I don't know about your rig, but my guess is that you can hold down the menu button or go to "set up". Get the temp to flash, push the up/down button until the change. If you are needing to make a manual calculation, Celsius is changed to Fahrenheit by multiplying the reading X9, dividing that by 5, and adding 32 to that number.

Ex== 30 degrees C to F is 30X9/5+32= 86 degrees.

To convert from degrees Celsius to degrees Fahrenheit, multiply by 1.8 then add 32. 75 degrees C is 167 degrees F.

Or,

Here's link to website which explains difference between Fahrenheit & Centigrade scales, & how to convert between them:

try a block heater. your engine is cold simple as that. you could try keeping inside a garage where its warmer or plug in a heater. they make a couple types of block heaters or it may already have a heater.

I'd set it as close as dead on as possible,, a plus or minus of 3 degrees, off of whats the suggested timing, is just that,,,, OFF,, 3 degrees can make the motor fire late, or early, which in turn makes the computer make up the difference, each and every stroke, thats only 35k times a minute,, get what I'm saying,

The '92 Subaru Legacy uses a distributorless ignition system. No adjustment is possible/necessary. The computer adjusts the timing continuously.

You can check the timing if you have a timing light. The spec for engines with a turbo charger is 15 degrees plus or minus 8 degrees at 700 RPM. Non-turbo engines are 20 degrees plus or minus 8 degrees at 700 RPM.
