Sounds like the timing is lost, go get your engine timed, change plugs and check the continuity on the spark plug cables, also have it scanned for errors on the sensors, that should lead you straigh to the real issue, hope this helps ;-)

1991 Subaru Legacy 2.2L not Turbo "Idle" very


i would check the idle air control solenoid first. simply unplug it then remove the unit and inspect the air passage for any blockage and carbon buildup. Clean it if its dirty then test it out. If the IAC is good then you should look at the throttle position sensor.

We have a Subaru Legacy GT, Twin Turbo 93, the car cut out and will not start, no fault codes, replaced spark plugs, fuel filter, checked the fuel pump, replaced air flow meter, engine temperature sensor,...


sounds like your timing may be off, or have a crank shaft postion sensor failing, when it cuts are you losing spark completely? do you have a fuel pressue gauge? whats the pressure? also you could try running it with the map sensor unplugged and see if the condition improves

94 subaru legacy wagon will start and run for a few seconds if the fuel pump is disconnected but won't start at all when reconneced.


Check for a very dirty air filter or an obstruction in the air intake. (Engine not getting enough air so mixture is too rich.) Check for fuel pressure to be correct and not too high with the pump running. If it is too high, check that the fuel pressure regulator is working.

Try this: connect the fuel pump but disconnect the cold start fuel injector. If you can get it to start and run, then fuel pressure being too high is most likely. When the cold start injector turns on, the extra pressure is causing more fuel to flow through the injector than normal and the engine floods out.
