Fuel pump heats up and malfunctions??? HaHa that's a good one. Tell the dope that told you that, I said the fuel pump is only going to get as hot as the fuel it is sitting in....or at least, lets hope so, unless you like to see bombs go off!

The best advice I can give you is this:
1. Check to see if there are any fault codes in your computer. (On an '86 Subaru, the computer might not be very smart, but check it anyway.)

2. If there are no codes, run the engine untill it stalls, then pull one of the spark plugs and see if there is any spark when you try to start it.

3. If it has spark, then you should check to see if it is getting fuel.

You have to find out which system is failing (Spark or Fuel) before you can even guess what is causing the problem.

When was the last time you had a MAJOR tune up? Other than that, it could be as simple as adjusting the throttle.

It def sounds like a starter prob, if you have replaced the wires its more than likely the starter motor itself, also check the battery voltage

I am looking at a 87 subaru 4x4, the strut rod is busted. She wants 250 bucks for it. Is it worth that and if so can I drive it home like that


hi yes its worth a lot more than that so you will still be getting a good deal, you can drive it home like that but it will drive like **** and be hard to control so be very careful, it may cause more damage to the suspension as well so best bet would be get a trailer

You might check your ignition switch and wiring...
