I am guessing here but I suspect that you have put the gasket on wrong way round and have blocked up the oil hole to the head and tappets. Also if you have used an after market gasket kit there may not be a hole for the oil in the gasket.

Violethaze, (someone used all of the purple haze?) You're real close. If the window operates from the main switch at the drivers seat then you probably have dirty contacts on the pass. switch.
If this is the case then take the panel off again, remove the switch from the panel and carefully remove the top from the electrical portion. Don't lose the spring! Remember - they put it together so it will come apart using the special tool #002 (Pocket screw driver). These are non-serviceable parts but I've cleaned lots of them. After you get the switch apart, you'll see the brass teeter-totter (TT) pieces with the contacts attached to them. Clean the TT contacts with an emery board and scratch the corrosion from the other contacts with your special tool. Lube it, snap it back together, plug it back into the wiring and test it before the final re-assembly.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: 1987 SUBARU GL WAGON 4WD WILL NOT IDLE RUNS

Either idle control valve/sensor, or a vacuum leak. Check all intake bolts for tightness, wiggle all hoses around with the engine running, and listen for a hissing. Try dumping some soapy water on the intake where it joins to the block, and see if it bubbles profusely. If it does, you may have an intake leak at the gasket.

Valve adjustment


The EA82 does not use shims. Ticking almost always caused by a failed oil pump to engine block gasket failure. The gasket slowly fails which then allows the oil pump to pump air along with the oil. Replace the "Mickey Mouse" oil pump gasket.

Antifreeze leaking into oil


Ummmm this is bad, you have one of two problems, if you may have a worped head or if your car froze up recently you could have a cracked engine block. Go back to the mechanic that replaced your gasket as he may of not replaced the head gasket properly
