Question about 1996 Subaru Legacy

1 Answer

1996 Outback Legacy quitting while driving down road.

While driving down the road the car will just quit then come back to life after a couple seconds and do this several times. It will then clear up and run fine for awhile. It will also at times quit while sitting at a stop light. Doesn't miss or sputter like it's a fuel system problem. I have replaced fuel filter and pulled pump out of tank and all appears to be OK. I also just replaced the alternator because it was surging to 155 amps and wasn't putting out steady current. I have cleaned the mass air flow valve also. Nothing has seemed to help. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.

I would check the cam and crank position sensor, these are definitely the symptoms of a bad crank sensor.

Sounds like you will find a code that says Misfire cyl 4. Or it could be any cyl. Most of the time it is worn out spark plugs. that's the easy fix. If it does the same thing after new plugs then you may have burnt valves which is not an unusual problem with Subaru and quite expensive to fix. From $1500 to $2200 depending where you go for repairs.

Hi there must be a cracked hose somewhere in the cooling system if its draining the radiator of water, i would also check the radiator side tanks as the plastic ones become brittle and small cracks appear that are quite hard to see

I have a 96 audi a4 quattro


Just a suggestion but my guess would be the engine control module. Usually when they heat up, the engine shuts down and when they cool off it works again, until it heats up again, then poof. I sincerely hope that I helped. Best wishes.
