Carry out a compression test and make sure the HT leads are good with a Multi meter set on OHM's they should be at least 1-5kohm

2000 subaru forester wont start battery is good what can I check next


Do headlights work? Do they get dim when you hit the start position, if so battery has bad cell.
Bad batteries might be OK after charging and running the car for a time but will discharge after car sits for maybe longer than a half hour. Usually a bad cell.
Take to auto parts store, they will load test it for free.

88 subaru justy,carbureted, 1.2 liter, 3 cyl. will not stay running unless foot is on accelerator. runs great besides that.


Carburetor needs overhauled. Get a kit around 60 dollars, or seek a professional to do the same. Make sure you have good gas if the car has been sitting.

2004 5.7 Auto 3.55 Quad 242K 1/4 Tank of fuel. After running 75 mph on Interstate for 330 miles pulled off freeway to get something to eat and no restart after 10 minutes. Cranks but will not start....


i am not sure about the 2004 models.[i left dodge in early 2004] but all the previous years had a problem with running out of gas with 1/4 tank reading on gauge. it may be when you parked truck is sitting at a different angle than it was on the road, causing what fuel was in there to drain away from the pump. easy check is to crank engine a coupl of seconds then locate the shrader valve on the fuel rail on intake and depress the valve core [like letting air out of a tire] if air or mostly comes out under a little pressure then you are out of gas also i dont know your tank capacity but if all of a sudden your getting better mileage than before then that would indicate out of gas. a new fuel level sender is needed if out of gas.

Got a low votage msg couple of weeks ago and replaced the battery. Got the same msg a few weeks later; went away for a couple of days and when I came back car would not start. Took it to Pep Boys to run...


If the battery is not recharging while the car is running, bad connection between alternator and battery. If it is dying while sitting, but charging while running, something is draining it. What? Who knows. It could be anything from a clock on the radio to an engine fan that doesn't stop. Look for anything electrical that is on when the car isn't. ANYTHING. Even the smallest light can pull more juice than you'd expect. Good luck.

When we turn key car is dead. Car has been sitting for 2 months.


replace your battery, a battery discharges every day you dont run the alt. to charge it up... after a week or 2 weeks the battery would be dead, just from a car sitting not being started... if you are not using the vehicle, it is a good thing to replace the battery, and every couple days just start the car up and let it run a while to charge the battery.... if you are going to have to leave the car for a while without starting it, then disconnect the battery, and remove it from the vehicle... you can buy a cheap trickel charger for the battery when it is out that will keep it charged till you decide to put it back in.... hope this helps you...

EGR Flow Malfunction, and sometimes a Cylinder 4 Misfire.


How does the oil look? Is it milky or is there any discoloration? Is any moisture or steam vapor coming out of the exhaust pipe? The EGR fault is most likely being triggered from the cylinder missfire. Sounds like you might have a head gasket blown, and/or a cracked or warped cylinder head from the overheating.
You can run a compression test to help determine this.
Good luck...i hope this helps you troubleshoot the problem.
