Question about Subaru Outback

Not as easy to change as any of my other cars. Do I have to remove the motor mount?

I need to change the spark plugs in my 1998 Subaru Outback Legacy 2.5L. It's not like any of the other cars I've changed my spark plugs in. Where do I begin?

Not easy without proper plug wrench. If not available then I use a plug socket and 1 " extension. Reach them in first onto the plug, then put ratchet on. When I re install I use a small piece of hose that the plug sets in to start the treads. The hose won't allow you to get enough torque to strip the threads but will start. Good luck and try to have paitience.

How do you replace the spark plug wires on 1997 Subaru outback/legacy?


Access from top is better but you must remove battery/washer reservoir driver's side and intake piping on passenger's side to get to the plugs. If you have bad back, access from underneath is fine but I'd have a ramp instead of jack for safety reasons.

My `1997 Subaru legacy outback wagon ,my gas mileage went from 21 MPH to 15 MPH. What do you think is wrong.


if there are no major problems present all it needs is a tune up(spark plugs,fule filter,oil change, air filter, fule injector cleaner). for a upgrade in fuel economy add a short ram intake, parts are fairly easy to install.

How difficult is it to change the rear struts on a 1998 Subaru Legacy Outback, 2.5, automatic trans?


Removing and replacing is not the problem, easy job. Changing the springs is the only problem. Make sure you are very careful when removing springs. Better to have a parts store do it for you. If you do decide to change yourself just make sure clamps are tight and take your time to follow directions exactly. Be careful, good luck and have a great day.
