Either gas or spark is likely lost, so that's where to start looking. I expect you have central point fuel injection-the Legacy was not available in the US until 1990, and it had a 2.2L engine. At any rate, spray a shot or two of starting fluid in the throttle body intake. If the engine coughs to life and tries to start, you know that it wasn't getting gas. Check the fuel pump circuit, maybe your pump has failed.
If the starting fluid has no effect, check for spark on a plug wire with the engine cranking. If no spark, the ignition circuit will have to be diagnosed.
Your Pump is getting worn, as it expands the noise goes away. You can try and Empty the Power Steering Pump of its fluid and put new in and there is a chance it will go away but if it does not, you are looking at replacing the Pump.
Preventive Maintenance goes a long way, the same thing with the brakes, Engine, Transmission, ect.. They all require changing the fluid to prolong the life of the components.
Hi! I suspect a faulty fuel filter. The filter may be clogged with dirt and rust causing the car to stall. Once the dirt and rust subsides, there goes the engine running again and when it blocks the fuel line it dies again. Drain the fuel tank and separate dirt and rust and replace the fuel filter. This will solve the issue. Hope this helps and have a good one!
Possibly the timing belt is broken. How does the engine sound when you crank the starter. Does it sound "normal" or does it sound fast and quiet? Have someone else crank the starter, can you feel any pressure coming out of the tailpipe? If the timing belt is broken the engine will sound very quiet and there will be no pressure coming out the tailpipe.
Is the check engine light on? If so, rent a scanner, read out any code(s), and pursue to repairs. If no spark or fuel, suspect either the camshaft or crankshaft sensor to be defective (should show up on the above scan).
your alternator has died i would replace it and have your battery checked or replaced .....when your alternator quit working it drained your battery right down until it was dead it might not hold a charge any more....i would replace them boath
First, check ignition system...cap, rotor, wires & coil. You may have some arcing going on there. If plugs are not recent, take a look at them as well...even if they are good, they can often tell you which cylinders are having a problem (wet with fuel, heavy deposits or just "different" from the rest) You may not hear the fuel pump come on all the time if the pressure in the line is not bleeding down. I would take a look at the relay first (power in & out). If fuel filter is more than 1yr old change that. (routine maintenance regardless of problems) Pressure test system if in doubt. Make sure idle air system is clean and do a quick test on crank sensor (a known problem area). likely something here will get you going.
