1986 subaru gl wagon non turbo stays idiling at 2500

My friend told me to turn both screws on the carburator to the left a few turns,that dropped the idiling down to 1500rpms then i turned the screws a little more to the left but that didnt work still idiling at 1500 rpms,so then we tried to close the screws all the way and start working them out till it idles right,i should of left it at 1500rpms because now anything we do it just wants to red line it hits 5500 in 2 seconds then i shut it off,we keep trying but its idiling so high like its gonna blow so i just parked it,any thoughts on this

Hate to tell you this but sounds like the problem is a vacuum leak. This will make the engine rev. Check all the vacuum lines before making any adjustment. Have to dig out some of my old books to find factory settings for that carb. Good luck and I will try to find in case you need them to restore carb settings.

I need to replace the starter on my 1988 subaru gl wagon non turbo five speed and I have no idea where its located.


It will be close to the gearbox bell housing, where it connects to the engine. If I remember correctly (it's been a while) it's on the left side of the engine.

Where is the fuel pump located on a 1984 subaru Gl ?


I have a 1984 Gl Wagon 4WD; the fuel pump is located on the passenger side, on the frame rail under the back door, just in front of the rear wheel. It and the fuel filter are accessed by dropping the mounting plate that also serves as a protective plate. Again, this is the 4WD non-turbo EA81 engine GL Wagon; could be different on the 2WD version.
