SOURCE: Where is the fuel pump located on a 1984 subaru Gl ?

I have a 1984 Gl Wagon 4WD; the fuel pump is located on the passenger side, on the frame rail under the back door, just in front of the rear wheel. It and the fuel filter are accessed by dropping the mounting plate that also serves as a protective plate. Again, this is the 4WD non-turbo EA81 engine GL Wagon; could be different on the 2WD version.

Need info for a 1979 subaru brat. I just bought one & can't find a manual.


For your 79 Brat the car station wagon manual is nearly identical with the exception of the rear bodywork and rear interior. Mechanicals are the same. Under hood and exterior lighting/wiring are the same. The car and Station wagon manuals are easier to find than the Brat manual. Some earlier manuals have the Brat in the Wagon or car manual.

1983 subaru cuts off when ecs light comes on seems to start fine afer it cools off


Sounds like engine coolant sensor, possibly overheating engine causing stall. Has thermostat been replaced recently? Coolant been flushed? Has the sensor been tested?

Subaru turns over but will not start and engine smokes.


I wont ever buy a car unless i know i can fix it. and depending on the price. if its not running i will never buy a car from someone i dont know for more than 100 bucks depending on condition of car. i dont care how much work has been done.

now on to the question.it can smoke for a number of reasons but the only way to check any real problems is if it runs. could be improper head job, could be turbo seals, but car would run with poor seals. check plugs for oil burning, but these are not very easy to check. subarus are not cheap to fix. so with that good luck.
im not a fan of these due to expensive parts cause its a subaru. unless there is something real special about this car i would walkaway
