Question about 1997 Subaru Legacy

1 Answer

Engine cuts out when requiring boost

When cruising at 100klms and increasing speed without changing gears the engine will cut out at 3.5 revs and the engine light will come on. after this the engine wont rev any higher if you increase acceleration to heavy. if you just increase the acceleration ever so slightly it will increase revs. When you turn engine off and back on it will remedy the problem.

Check Fuel pressure regulator by disconnecting the vacuum hose. Didn't say what year you have, yet the timing belt can also cause this as I had similar problems on an 87 and the belts were loose and floppy causing erratic firing/idling. A little easy trick to check timing belts without taking any parts off to get at timing belts, is (and no one knows about this one, hee) with a timing light!

SOURCE: Car hesitates when changing gears

Give it a transmission tune-up, Dexron III oil, Lucas for transmission and transmission filter. Check the fluid level, restart the computer go for a ride. Check the fluid level again and continue to drive, it'll get better when the computer sets. I suggest you change the air filter, engine oil and filter, fuel filter etc. Just give it a tune-up!

Travelling at 100 klh @ 2000 revs kicked down in Polo-revs up to 4500 but would not move up gear(s)


run the fault codes to check for TCM or other problem sensor in the transmission. It may be a protection item as it is unwise to kick down at that speed as kickdowns are used to change to lower gears when going up hill or pulling a load and need a lower gear . They are not meant to pass at speed .It is the same effect bas with a manual in overdrive at 100klms and suddenly shifting into 1st gear

Have you checked the PCV system?? If its stuck in the closed position then you will lack power and turbo boost. A vehicle needs 3 things to make it run proper; FUEL,FIRE and AIR. Try that and see if it helps.

MAZDAS HAVE OVER REV CUT OFF. IF REVS ARE EXEEDED, PCM CUTS ENGINE POWER SO AS NOT TO DAMAGE ENGINE. ARE REVS INTO THE RED LINE WHEN THIS HAPPENS?

TH 350 transmission question


Thought you had an old "slip & slide powerglide" ! I like the way they originally cursed them, then all the racers wanted them all of a sudden. Anyway, if you have the TH350, which your obviously cruising and shifting manually, just go with gear selection that sounds good to you, RPM wise. I never look at a tachometer, all by ear. The TH 350 are pretty strong too. Then of course there's always a shift kit that will make it bang into next gear & chirp tires for cruising too.

Probs with 2001 elantra h/back. Noise from r/side when driving.


Sounds like a bearing packing up. Could be a siezing alternator, which would put enough of a strain on the engine to make it cut out. Does the pitch of the noise increase with speed?

Electronics?


Sounds like it may be a faulty speed sensor. This sensor is connected to the transmission and the speedometer cable connects to it as well. I'm not 100% sure, but if it were to go bad it may trip the check engine light. Hope this helps, good luck
