Go to the dealers parts dept and ask to see the diagrams of the heater parts, then point it out to them. You can also download load diagrams from many dealers who sell parts online.

SOURCE: wiring diagram for a subaru impreza

There is no full wiring diadram for this model. All the schematics are divided into the various electrical systems on the car. There are around 50 charts to make up the set. Perhaps if you let me know what system you are interested in, I may be able to help.

What kind of oil do i put in my 2001 subaru impreza outback sport

The service manual calls for 5W-30. Full synthetic would be your best bet on oil changes with a OEM Subaru oil filter and new gaskets (o-rings). Depending on your area (hot or cold), the viscosity rating of the oil you use can vary to off set efficiency in the hot or cold temperatures.

Ac blows only hot air,how to fix

You need to check that the compressor is running, if this does not work could be due to lack of freon, electrical problems, if the compressor runs you can touch the thick tube that goes into the evaporator has to be cold, if cold and in the car does not come the cold is due to problems at the gate of the evaporator or problem in the control panel for air conditioning.

Chevy TrailBlazer heat won't shut off

most gm cars use electrily controled temp actuator door on top of center of heater case . if move the temp lever to hot or cold you should see the door arm move sometimes the arm will move but the door dosent there is three wires too the motor one 12 volt one ground and one return to the hvac modle head controls there are different colors for the return wire.basically you can un hook the arm and move it manunlly to see if it makes a difference at the vent while the ac system is on.the way test for the problem is to check the voltage on the return wire at the motor and ground with a dvm meter you should see a vary voltage when slide temp controls from hot to cold . more than likey it is hvac control head but check first they are costly.

Sounds like a sensor is breaking down under heat of engine.
Try the Crank sensor (under the alternator at front of engine with a 2 pin multiplug attached. Or the Cam sensor (more likely) placed behind the oil filler neck and looks the same as the crank sensor. Breakers should sell you these for approx £20 each.
If no joy let me know.

Turbo kicks in better

Cold air is more dense, so that makes perfect sense. Also, a turbo compresses the air, which heats it up, so you lose some of the power gains, which is why intercoolers are so common.
