Question about 1999 Subaru Legacy
I have a 1999 TS-R with only 70k on the clock. It is really gutless going up hills, and even in 3rd gear it struggles. I took the car in for a tune up as it was pinking slightly too; they diagnosed a problem with the timing. After this, the car developed problems with its idle. It starts ok, but will not idle and promptly cuts out making it very difficult to get the car moving without revving the hell out of it! The same mechanic thinks there is a problem with the idle motor, but I am unconvinced he knows what he is doing. Any suggestions greatly appreciated!
Sounds like a classic example of cam timing which is different from ignition timing. It could be that one of the cams is a tooth out on the timing. It requires the front cambelt covers to be taken off to be checked.
