I suggest you to have a ELM327 OBD2 with bluetooth connection (around 10-25$ on internet stores) + torque app to your phone. cheap and works just fine for checking engine error codes, and resetting malfunction lights. I think you were lucky to find correct answer on the internet, because without any further inspection they all are nothing else but lucky guesses. (and changing different sensors randomly based on guesses willcome very expensive.) If you watch this video it explain why in situation like you have is hard find correct answer to a specific problem.

WOW... It'd take a book's worth of instructions on here to answer your question. Which is why I would recommend that you purchase a repair manual specific to your model. It should give you all the info you need for these jobs and for future jobs as well. I always buy one for each vehicle that I plan to keep a while... they aren't that expensive and really pay for themselves in the long haul.
Hope this helps... Good luck with your project!

I don't think the dohc engine in your 97 will work. And I'm not saying that because I have a sohc engine for sale. It came out of my 2000 Impreza RS. Unfortunately my daughter totalled the car (she's OK) and I retained the vehicle from the insurance company. the car (and engine) had 120,044 miles at the time of death. the timing belt was done at 105,000. Talk to me-ED.A.

1992 Subaru legacy wagon will not shift up from first gear. it is an AT.

run the fault but all you describe is operated from the VSS sensor ( vehicle speed sensor)
it tells the cruise control the vehicle speed , tells the TCM the vehicle speed so that ratios can be changed, activates the speedo,and will report with a check engine light to report a transmission problem
run the fault codes first

Why are my rpms staying at 1000 when I'm going 40mph?

Does your RPM gauge only go to 1000 and not record anything higher? As far as your check engine...on the Subaru Legacy the check engine usually comes on when there is an issue with something within the emission control sensors...and typically it is an issue with the forward O2 sensor going into the Catalytic Convertor. As a safety feature, the vehicle's cruise control will not work when the check engine light is engaged and the light will flash intermittently. The repair of the forward O2 (oxygen) sensor should run about $150 - $200 to replace the sensor. As with the case with most sensors, you may not notice any performance difference in the vehicle operation but you should have it diagnosed and repaired when possible because overtime the operation can be impacted.
