two things you must address, first the tires may need rotating, 4WD cars need all tires to be close to the same size or conflicts in gearing occur, second change the oil in the rear axle this can cause noisy operation.

SOURCE: 87 Subaru GL wagon. Clicks when key is turned.

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

SOURCE: '88 Subaru GL wagon 4wd shifter won't go out of 4wd!

If you come to a stop. keep the wheel straight. Put the car in reverse. as the gear catches apply light pressure to the 4wd shifter. It will easily slide back into FWD. If its feels like you have to apply anymore than 5 lbs then put the car in first, drive a foot, and pop it back into reverse applying slight pressure

Fixing automatic. Choke on a 1985 subaru gl wagon


What fails on these predominatley within the choke system is the vacuum dashpot/pulloff.This slightly opens the choke plate with vaccum present after the engine has started and gives the engine some air.The engine will be under a very rich condition without this opening.Unfortunatley this pulloff is incorporated in the carburetor top which will nesessitate replacement of the carb top portion
