No, too many production changes, too many years different.

If it isnt the motor an you changed every you can what else could it be

I guess the first question is how is it overheating, and how do you know the motor is not the problem ?
Do you know if the coolant is flowing thru the system ?
Does it boil over or just show hot on the gauge ?
Does the cooling fan come on ?
How long does it take to overheat ?

How do you fix electric seat belts in a 90 subaru legacy

Hi there,

Each motion of your electric seat is operated by 3 components:

1. Fuse/Relay - ensure the fuse or relay is not faulty (before you do anything else).

2. switch - each position of the switch can be tested by the use of a multimeter. If the switch proves ok, then continue testing the motors.

3. motors - if you remove your seat from the vehicle, you will see 2 or more motors (depending on how many functions your seats have) underneath, or inside the back. You can detach the motor wiring connectors and using a jumper wire, connect each pin dircectly to the car + & - battery terminals. If the motor spins ok, then revers the wires to confirm the motor spins in the opposite direction. Do this test for each of the motors. If a motor does not respond in one (or more) directions, then you have a suspected faulty motor.

You should be able to obtain these parts from the same model Subaru, at your local car wrecker.

Hope this helps....

My 1990 subaru legacy will not start, has no fuel pressure and no spark, but engine will motor over

No fuel pressure AND no spark? I'd be looking at fusible links. (some cars use maxi fuses instead, which look like oversized fuses)

Radiator fan motor installing

HI there! This is really pretty easy to install. There are just some 10 mm bolts that hold the fan to the radiator. Remove the bolts and unplug the fan. Then you can slide it right up and out,installation is the reverse of removal. Don't forget to plug it back in! Hope this helps! Thanks

1990 SUBARU LEGACY problems

Check for water in spark plug tubes, ign. wire connector ends & coil pack for corrosion.
All marks go up, the crankshaft sprocket has an arrow that you don't use! if you position the crank sprocket where the key way is down you'll notice that the sprockect has a timing mark at the top of one of the sensor pickup teeth, use that. Here is a rough home made pic. I hope this pic made it, no conformation that it did.
