Question about 1996 Subaru Legacy

1 Answer

1996 subaru no spark

The engine turns over, fuel gets to the cylinders but there's no spark from the spark plugs. I don't know if there's a fuse for them or much about gasoline engines. I figured it had to be a fuse because I was jumpstarting the car, it started turning over like normal and then died. After I cranked it again the engine turned over, and fuel was coming out of the exhaust but it doesn't sound like anything's going on in the cylinders. Thanks for your help!

If you are saying it takes a long time to start the engine, have you checked fuel pressure before and after cranking ?

Coil issue


code p0301 and 302 refer to cylinder I and cylinder 2 misfire detected.--- causes--engine mechanical fault--wiring---ignition/ fuel system--injector--ECT/MAF sensor ---ECM I would have had a fuel pressure test done as miss fires from injectors not getting enough fuel would have been a better starting point
Run the fault codes again to see what else has happened.

Error Code P0302 1996 Volvo 850 GLT


Diagnostic Test Code (DTC) P0302 has a generic description of "Cylinder Misfire - Cylinder Number 2".

A misfire simply means that when it came time for that cylinder to fire, it missed its chance.
There are many things that can cause a misfire. Some of the things are listed below. Diagnostics should be performed to eliminate the possible causes so you don't spend a lot of money replacing parts trying to "guess" what is causing it.

These are just SOME of the possible causes:

> Spark plugs
> Ignition cables
> Ignition coil
> Distributor cap (if equipped)
> Fuel injector
> Fuel injector circuits
> Burned engine valves
> Blown head gasket
> Cracked cylinder head
> Piston damage
> Cylinder block damage
> Broken valve springs
> Damaged camshaft
> Vacuum leaks

2 flooding cyliders in subaru forester 2000 model engine is it computer related issues? problem happened under idle in extreme cold conditions whilst trying to warm engine


Hello...i'm here to help you, but need a bit more information please. Is the check engine light on in your Subaru? If so, do you know what the DTC codes are that caused it to come on? When you say "2 flooding cylinders" does that mean those 2 cylinders are not firing and the spark plugs are wet with gasoline? What 2 cylinders are they? I don't think the problem is ECM related. Reply back and i can give you some suggestions on where and what to troubleshoot.

2000 Eclipse GT turns over but doesn't start. Fires once in a while but won't run. Had timing belt replaced.


Hi, if the car turn over, and it don't start. Then it is like the engine don't get fuel. Or bad a spark plugs. Most common problem is the fuel pump going bad.

It could also be a bad fuse, but a easy way to check if the fuel pump is ok is to have someone stand at the back of the car when you turn the ignition. The fuel pump should make a buzzing sound for a few seconds. And if you don't start the car right away the fuel pump will stop.

If you don't hear any buzzing from the fuel pump/fuel tank then you have a bad fuel pump............

Engine turns, camshaft turns, fuel pump and filter working good, and fuses are good but engine does not start.


Turning is good, but does it have spark? How do you know fuel pump is good? whats your fuel pressure? Spark plugs? I know these may have a problem in cold weather, Put a little oil in each cylinder, new spark plugs and hold the gas pedal to the floor and see if it starts. Make sure you have a good battery.
