My 2000 subaru forester does not start

The car was in an accident. My son rear ended someone and ran over a street sign. The car drove away from the accident, about 5 miles, but died when he got to school and tried to park it. We first checked for spark and we don't have spark so we changed the ignition coil. Still no spark. I pulled the timing belt cover and the timing belt is whole. we also pulled the cam sensor and checked it with a magnet. It shows a voltage change when the magnet passes by it. What else can I do to diagnose the problem?

Check to see if the fuel shut off has been tripped some times they
do not completely trip in wreck but trip a short time later some times
even bumpy roads cause them to trip without wreck

SOURCE: #5 cylinder misfire

I have a corolla and had #4 cylinder misfire also diagnosed at autozone. After changing the spark plugs, problem persisted, along with the same error code, so they recommended changing the spark plug wires, and that is what fixed it. I would have changed the rotor cap too, but was low on dough. Glad that was not the problem.

SOURCE: 2000 subaru forester ignition coil wiring

Are there any other possible problems, or you are just not receiving spark at all now?

The coilpack could be dead and just need replaced. If you have a voltmeter or a test light, check the wiring on both sides of the coilpack harness to make sure it is receiving power.
I don't believe Subaru used ignitors past '99, but if they did, your should be located on the firewall behind the throttle body. Make sure it's plugged in and receiving power.

Coil packs do go bad from time to time. I had to replace mine in my
'98 Impreza a while back.

Goodluck!

2000 subaru forester wont start battery is good what can I check next


Do headlights work? Do they get dim when you hit the start position, if so battery has bad cell.
Bad batteries might be OK after charging and running the car for a time but will discharge after car sits for maybe longer than a half hour. Usually a bad cell.
Take to auto parts store, they will load test it for free.

Can't put gas into my 2010 subaru forester


Having same issue with my 2010 subaru - seems common although the dealer refuses to admit it. P0453 CEL code indicates a problem with the EVAP - this came on a few days before I was no longer able to refuel. THey say I need a new Fuel Tank Pressure sensor. Essentially the fuel tank valve is closed, when it should be open when the ignition is off. Wating 4 days for the part, hopefully thats what it is. WHat ended up fixing your problem Tom?

Gas pedal on 2005 subaru forester got stuck in a


No there has not been complaint's like with the Toyota's. Toyota is involved with Subaru on a few thing's , But toyota uses Subaru technology not the other way around. And the accelerator style levers are different from Subaru's. Sorry to hear about your accident. Have a great day.

I have a 2003 Subaru Forester (123,000Km) and


If it is a piston or other bad noise it will not go away. If this is what is happening then a good auto mechanic will have to listen to and isolate the noise before they can tell how much it will cost to fix it. Its usually not the piston.If after the car runs for a little while the noise gos away its usually dirt in the engine.Before you think about a very expensive repair try this.Change the oil and filter. Use only good quality oil and a Fram TG or a Purolator Pure One oil filter.My car likes the Castrol Sin Tec Synthetic oil. Yes synthetic cost more but it is better oil.
Let the car warm a little before you drive it every time you start it cold.
Dont let someone drive your car when you are not in the car. I know someone who has a son that was raceing his car when his son told him he was going to the library.
Do your next oil and filter change only after 2000-3000 miles.Then after that no more than 4000 miles between changes.Be nice to your car.
All this I am telling you is only if your noise gos away after tap tap as you said right after you start your car.
I hope this info helps you.

Battery draining completely within 15 miles of driving


I had the same problem on my NEW Forester, dealer told me to check the litttle switch set far down on the top of the steering column. I had accidently turned it on while cleaning the car. It turns on some tiny lights that are used more in Japan and not easily noticed unless you are looking for them. Sure enough, that is what caused my battery to drain multiple times.

Not sure if it helps but it's worth checking just in case.
