How do you replace the fuel pump in 1992 2wd Subaru Legacy Wagon

My 1992 2wd Subadu Legacy Wagon will turn over, but not run. So far we have replaced the fuel filter, added dry gas to the tank, and sprayed starter fluid into the air intake. The car does turn over, but does not fire up the pistons. The car will run briefly when starter fluid is sprayed into the air intake. No fuel comes out of the fuel filter when disconnected and turning the engine over. It would seem to be a fuel pump problem. How do you replace the fuel pump in a 1992 2wd Subaru Legacy Wagon? Some people have told me you have to remove back chassis to get at the gas tank and it is not worth it.

How about just rolling up carpet behind seat and accessing fuel pump cover. unscrew cover sc.rews, disconnect plug and hose clamps use 8mm socket to pull bolts. Much easier than pulling gas tank

  1. Relieve the fuel system pressure.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Remove the rear exhaust pipe and muffler assembly.
  4. On All Wheel Drive (AWD) vehicles, remove the rear differential assembly and the rear crossmember. You do not have AWD so this step is not for you
  5. Remove the fuel filler cap and drain the fuel into a suitable container.
  6. Remove the fuel filler pipe protector.
  7. Raise and support the vehicle safely on jackstands.
  8. Remove the fuel filler, air vent and delivery hoses.
  9. On AWD vehicles, disconnect the air breather hoses and evaporation hose from the pipes.
  10. Support the fuel tank with a floor jack or equivalent lifting device.
  11. Loosen the attaching bolts and lower the fuel tank slightly.
  12. Disconnect the fuel pump harness

1990 subaru legacy wagon fuel injectors are not getting fuel to start it


Check the pressure to the fuel rail then check it at the line before the fuel pressure regulator, it should be between 55 and 80 psi at the rail and 100 psi before the regulator, if you don't have pressure before the regulator then you have a fuel pump issue, if the rail pressure is low then you may need to replace the regulator.

94 subaru legacy wagon will start and run for a few seconds if the fuel pump is disconnected but won't start at all when reconneced.


Check for a very dirty air filter or an obstruction in the air intake. (Engine not getting enough air so mixture is too rich.) Check for fuel pressure to be correct and not too high with the pump running. If it is too high, check that the fuel pressure regulator is working.

Try this: connect the fuel pump but disconnect the cold start fuel injector. If you can get it to start and run, then fuel pressure being too high is most likely. When the cold start injector turns on, the extra pressure is causing more fuel to flow through the injector than normal and the engine floods out.
