SOURCE: 2003 subaru outback engine vibration in gear

Did you recently replace the axles on the vehicle? This problem commonly occurs in Subarus when you replace the axles with non-OEM parts. The only fix seems to be to swap out the axles for OEM parts. Search the forums at for many stories of the same condition and some theories on why non-OEM axles cause the problem.

Why my 1996 golf from turn off while driving, it sparks but I won't start, need to wait 30 min and it will start with no problem but if it keep driving it it will do the same thing... please help me

which engine? see list , mind blowing, and what country>???
doing a 60k mile tuneup works, at least once a decade.
ever do the list of parts, spark and fuel , per operators guide?
that be first, 99% of bad running engines are that.
my guess , (weak based on only 1 fact) is has lost fueling
the ECU in the all cars 96 tries 10x to stop stalls.
the reasons are this: (top list)
1: lost 12vdc power ,see dash lamps or other lights go dead at stall>?
2: lost spark (tune up time?)
3: lost fueling, (try test fuel start now.
4: flooded, are the spark tips soaked in raw gasoline. (use wide open throttle cranking, does that work? this cuts fuel. (a secret mode)
5: ISC dead? (start car with 10% throttle) ok ISC is funky. clean it.

can you save the stall with fast right foot? (key fact here)

gen 3 engine list.
1.4 I4 40/44 kW (ABD/AEX/APQ)
1.6 I4 55 kW (ABU/AEA/AEE)
1.6 I4 74 kW (AEK/AFT/AKS)
1.8 I4 55 kW (AAM/ANN)

I recent change the mass air flow sensor and the egr valve. there is no enging light but the car hesitate and sometimes vibrate on moving. when am moving slowly the grear shift fast i.e move foward fast...

Your all over with this
I wish I could drive it
I own a 2004

Why was the MAF,not MAS changed?
I know the EGR Valve problems
I also know the idle and shift stratagy

Is it a V6 or V8
Give me some history on COP Coil issues
and other past problems

Do you work on it exclusively?
If repair shops have checked it ,I need all they did
in detail. Their no good with an LS and a dealer is lost

The idle won't go over 3000 rpm in park,it is a safety feature without getting technical
When you go into drive it should not increase in rpm
The throttle command comes from the pedal actuator (gas pedal),I will continue later on that

MAF Sensor shouldn't fail,was it tested and how?
How many coils went bad since 2003?
Was TPS checked out?

Has a dealer ever looked at it,looked might be a stretch,their not good at even looking
and can't fix these cars.

I will wait on some input from you

How to wire in vw abf engine 2.0L 16v in to fuse box.

You'll need to use the wiring from the 2.0L motor. Your best bet is to get Bentley manuals for the car the motor came from and for yours. They have very very detailed wiring diagrams, to do the swap.

Vw polo vibrating inside the car??

Sounds like one of your engine or gearbox mountings are faulty or broken, Check them and try moving the motor with a long bar, if they are broken you will soon see it.
