    if problem is timing belt that car won't start, but the car will drive for almost 30 mins when engine gets hot it will shut off while driving and won't start only cranking but will start the following day and drive for 30 mins. and shut off again.

    Thanks, the car has no ignition module but rather a coil pack no prblem like electronic issue untill the timing belt was changed then all this problem arises. Could it be the crank sensor damage due to over heating?

If this vehicle has a stand alone ignition module, that is more than likely the culprit. Change the igntion module and the problem should go away.

    The car has a coil pack and had been changed

    If the coil pack sits on top of the ignition module and only the coils packs were changed, it will still do the same thing until the ignition module is changed as well. If the ignition module is located totally separate from the coil pack it needs to be located and still changed. Unless the coil packs and ignition module are built together, the coil pack change alone will not take care of the issue. Get a service manual and see where the ignition module is located. Most of the time when you can drive for a while and then it shuts off and starts later, its failing electronic like the crank sensor or ignition module that is at fault whenit gets hot. The next time that it fails to start, take off the intake boot just in front of the throttle body and spray 2-3 seconds of starter fluid into the throttle body(with it open), close the throttle body and attempt to start it. If it does try to start or runs for a few seconds then that rules out the cam position sensor and the ignition module. If it does not run or attempt to start after spraying it with starter fluid, it is still an electronic issue.

SOURCE: how do u put timing belt for 2001 subaru outback

This is not your average timing belt replacement due to being a double overhead cam that is also an interferance fit.First remove cooling fans.2-Loosen drive belts and remove.3-Remove crank pully.4-Remove timing covers.You will see 4 cam sprockets.Theses sprockets contain single and double referance marks.You will be using the double referance marks.Rotate engine until the double referance marks are facing each other.This is to be done the same way that the American autos timing Chain systems are done but you will have 2 small double lines to line up not dots.The next step is the most important step and is of utmost imortance.THE CAMSHAFT HAVE TO BE LOCKED IN PLACE--FAILURE TO DO SO CAN RESULT IN BENT VALVES.The cam sprocket holders can be bought or rented.You can make your own as well by making 2 wedges with bolt through the middle.Slip in between sprockets and tighten enough to hold sprockets.Do not use excessive torque while tightening wedges sprockets are not made of steel but rather a composite material.Next you will have to remove the tenioner.The tensioner has to be retracted and pin istalled to hold in retracted position.The tension device has to be retracted with care or will be damaged.You can not exceed 50 pounds pressure on the plunger.The simplest method is to reract while still in vehicle, it takes 15 minutes to properly retract the plunger.By pulling up on the tensioner by hand with about 18 pounds of force --50 will be exerted at the plunger.When fully retracted insert pin to hold in reracted position.Next check to make sure that cam wedges are holding and no sprocket are trying to move,when satisfied remove one of the rollers at the bottom on the side where you left hand would be standing in front.Pull off belt.Replacement belt will have referance marksone line will go to crank sprocket face up others will line up with other sprocket marks.Reinstall roller followed by tensioner then pull pin you have holding tenioner retracted.Remove wedges.Reinstall covers fans belts.Do not be intimitaded by this replacement.Everything is very easy to get to.Be sure cams are locked and that damage is not done to tensioner and it is straight forward.

I do not know for sure if this is the problem you are having, But, I have noticed that from 95 up to 2002 I have seen a lot of PO420 codes that have been just the sensor. I do not know if it was a weak sensor or just that program telling it that it is below threshold. I did notice that if the vehicles are run for a long trip at highway speed it goes out. I wish you luck and have a great day.

Cam shaft sensor code p0340 replaced still no start


You will get a cam shaft code if the timing belt is broken. This could be you issue. I would check the timing belt before you go any further.
It can damage your engine if you keep trying to start it.

I'm trying to adjust the timing on the subaru 1997 outback legacy 2.5 engine and it seems to not be correct.


The ignition timing is not adjustable. It is computer controlled by the crank sensor, cam sensor and knock sensor. Would be easier to help you if I knew why you were trying to adjust it. Have a great day.
