1997 subaru Impreza sport won't stay running . stalls after minute replaced Fuel pump,filter spark plugs wires ,cleaned injectors checked fuel pressure what next

check your grounds. I find many easy fixes by cleaning all the grounds around the engine bay. I would also check the ground at the fuel pump connector that wiring is prone to corrosion and breakage

it does not sound right but you need a good manual for that engine every car/truck i've owned i've had a good workshop manual.. your problem may be a parshall blockage in fuel filter or injector/jet,cleaning fuel system kills elgy and they should end up in the fuel filter...if timing is ********(late) it can effect power but if engine runs good loss of power on hills can also be atributed to lack of air and or fuel...when you say it dosen't kick down your refering to an auto right,when was it last servised it may be the cause oil brakes down with age aswell as miles

When driving my 1998 impreza all power to the car seems to go then come back on or i have to restart the car

Possible catalytic converter is becoming plugged. Another possible problem could be fuel filter. I would start with the fuel filter. Cheaper and easier. Good luck and have a great day.

1997 subaru HX20 impreza, when accerlating the car starts to stutter as if it is going to stall

If you have already done a good tune up and it still does it, I would check the fuel filter. IT allows the car to idle and run fine till you accelerate, then it cant maintain enough pressure for the injectors and will hesitate. Might want to check the OBD and see if it gives any readings in the computer. Good luck and have a great day.

once you change fuel octane it may run sluggish because the car is used to running at a better octane to run more efficient. go back to 93 and see if that may change it back to normal (note that it may take your car a few runs to get back to normal)
