Question about 1993 Subaru Legacy

Open Question

93 Subaru Legacy revs high then shuts off

Hi, Our '93 Subaru Legacy L is having issues shifting and with the cold. We've had other problems with the radiator and overheating but have been able to fix those in the past, this is a new problem. We will start it up and we have to wait a while before we drive it so it doesn't shut off. When we're first on the road and try to get up to speed, it revs high then sometimes doesn't want to shift into gear. Please give me your advice on what we need to do to fix it. Thank you! Courtney

SOURCE: High revs and surges when driving.

The revving to 2000 then dropping the 1500 likely means that it is in "limp home" mode. When there is a serious problem, the car will put itself in this limited mode to avoid further damage, and to get itself back home without stalling (hence the name). Since it stalls, its likely that there is a serious problem with the fuel system, and the limp home mode will not help you any more since you keep driving it like that. 
As far as the problem goes, it could be just about anything. Almost positive it has to do with the fuel system, but could be so many different things.
Hope this helps!

Check the transmission fluid level. If it is low, fill it. Otherwise, if you happen to have a Subaru Select Monitor or equivalent, then you can read the fault codes for the 4EAT transmission and it will tell you which internal solenoid valves are sticky. At that point you can either add a quart of stuff that says it solves transmission problems and hope for the best, disassemble the transmission and change the problem valves, swap the transmission for one that works, or take it to someone to have it repaired.

Check that the Duty Solenoid B is good. Diagnostic may indicate a code 12. Easy to replace. Solenoid is on valve body next to filter. Must drop pan and should be right there. Call Subaru dealer with your VIN number and they can verify. Price is about $150 to purchase over dealer parts counter.

I have a automatic 2003 Subaru legacy L 108,000 miles, I had new belts and a water pump replaced last year, I just had the spark plugs changed. When I try to accelerate, it is very slow and the car revs...


My guess would be either the transmission fluid and filter needs to be srviced or the transmission is having a issue with the shift linkage.. Does it improve when the car warms up ?

e: subaru legacy transmission dipstick Transmission dip stick is behind the engine in front of driver side firewall. Move a few hoses out of the way, look down and you'll see it has a yellow top.
Other side (passenger) lower down yet, again move a few hoses aside, yellow top handle, you'll find the shorter differential dip stick.
In either case, if your gaze reaches the ground, you've gone too far.

1997 subaru legacy with awd transmission - driveshaft has been removed due to bad u-joints and trans. locked up the front wheels. What do we need to unlock them?


I have a 93 legacy. Subaru's always run in front wheel drive until a sensor tells the computer the front wheels are not turning the same speed as the rear wheels( spining on ice or sand etc.). At that point all wheels will be driven though a clutch to the rear wheels. This is not good if the car needs to be towed with the front wheels in the air! This "all wheel drive" can be shut down for towing. Under the hood on my 93, there is an in line fuse holder on the pass. side of car behind the front strut mount. Open the top of the holder and it will be empty, put in a fuse (10 or 20 amp or close) , this completes a circuit and shuts down the rear wheels. I don't know if the your 97 has this in the same place, but it must have one some place. hope this can help you.

Sounds like the timing is lost, go get your engine timed, change plugs and check the continuity on the spark plug cables, also have it scanned for errors on the sensors, that should lead you straigh to the real issue, hope this helps ;-)

93 subaru legacy starting problems


Probably a short or loose connection between battery and starter motor, or on either end of cables. Id look there before swapping out starter.On cold days you might put a heater under car for a few hours before using it,do this carefully as to avoid a car fire, or look into a block heater for your engine.
