SOURCE: what oil for my 1995 Subaru Legacy 250T?

I know I will get some argument on this one, but regardless of what manufacturers recommend, the best possible lubricant is a good synthetic. They far exceed any manufacturers needs in both lubricity long life and resistance to thermal changes. they do not burn off or form deposits readily and work in any temperature climate. as far as rating, a 10-40 or 50 works for everything. With synthetics those #s are almost a decoration on the can because in reality they cover a far larger span. Personally I would not use mobil1 (too much additive package not enough real stuff) on the other end, amsoil is one of the best (they even offer a 0w50 oil)
Whatever you use make sure you keep it clean. A good oil filter is essential and if extending oil change intervals, you can just change filter and any oil lost.
I know I've ranted, but the actual lab testing results and notes I've made over the years is far longer!
good luck whatever you decide on!

Unfortunately, you will have to remove the panel of the door, Use flathead screwdriver to pry open. It is very likely the spring fell off.

SOURCE: 2005 Subaru Legacy electrical repair question?

The #3 fuse does service both windows and door locks and #2 services a control module that affects door locks. Inspect them closely since the fuse element can crack when blowing and this is much harder to see. Pull a least #3 and plug it back in in case the contact blades have stopped comunicating with the mating connector.

To troubleshoot this effectively, you really need a cheap multimeter and the Haynes service manual for your car, #89101.
The manual has very good electrical diagrams in section 12 so you can logically trace the problem. They are available at most every auto parts chain store and cost ~ $20-25 US.

SOURCE: Subaru liftgate lock stuck, liftgate won't close

You should open the tailgate and pull the handle and at the same time push the hook back so that it is not in the way of the lock bar when go to close it. Sounds like it just got jammed and should be able to be fixed with out having to replace. Assuming that it is not rusted and seized.

My boot wont close fully


  • Press down on your trunk, and have somebody release your trunk's release mechanism from inside your car simultaneously. These systems can become jammed but can sometimes be released if a gentle downward pressure is applied to your trunk while the mechanism is being activated. If this is the problem, apply some lubricant.
  • Clean the latch and the area where it connects to the chassis. If dirt or debris has become lodged here, it can stop the latch from connecting properly. It's a good idea to vacuum the area to ensure no small bits of gravel have become trapped and stopped the mechanism from securing properly.
  • Examine the latch and the area where it connects to the body of the car. Either of these might have become bent out of shape or damaged in some other way if the trunk has been shut with an obstruction in the way. If this is the case, contact your vehicle's manufacturer or a local garage to find a replacement if the elements cannot be repaired.
Check the latch mechanism, it may have accidentally already be in the closed or lock position. If it is, you will have to pry down on the latch tangs with a screw driver while pulling latch handle to the open position.
Latch could also be seized, in that case , use a thin oil liberally on latch mechanism, and work the mechanism open and shut closing and opening with screw driver and boot handle.

Hatch latch will not shut, not matter how hard you shut it.


try unlocking it while its open sometimes they get jammed up by trying to close them and the latch will get hung up in the closed position if you take the key and hold it in the unlock position (don't release ) and then try to manuver the metal latching part it will pop loose ,doors are famous for this !

The key or the botton inside the car or the on the keypad won't pop my trunk


Sounds like the release mechanism ( latch) is stuck
If you have fold down backseats you can access the trunk that way and if its a newer car pull the emergency relase handle... you should find it easily as they are made to glow in the dark.
If no emergency release you'll need to manually release the latch.
Once open give it a good spray with penetrating oil like WD40.
test it by using a screw driver to set the latch as if its closed and try to open it. You'll see the latch move if it's free

1998 Caravan tailgate won't open. It is unlocked but won't open is there a mechanical way to open it?


The latch may be in need of some lubricant.
If you can hear the latch mechanism 'click' when you try to open it, have someone bounce their hand (with pressure) on the sheet metal near where the latch is located. This will often cause it to release but don't close it again without having smeared some grease or sprayed some oil into the latch.Don't use penetrating lube, they are made to evaporate after having freed some stuck item.

Trunk problem


Rust builds up on the handle on the outside. A few small drops of oil usually will allow it to return to the proper position. Hope this helps and have a great day.
