96 Subaru wagon stalling

I have a 1996 Subaru Outback wagon.It is a 135 cid with 16 valve.It starts no problem and idles for a couple of minutes but then stalls. It will start right back up no problems but just dies again after a couple of minutes. The car is not going on the road , I'm using it for a demolition derby car so if there is a quick fix that would be wonderful before my husband burns it to the ground on me.HELP !!

    just checked the gas in the tank. it has an oily film to it ???

  • shortshorts Jun 16, 2009

    We just discovered it has dual tanks in it. Is there a way to drop the tanks without dropping the whole rear end out ?? This is the first time we've ever dealt with a subaru.

On a Vehicle this Age..there is a good chance the Catalytic converter is clogged..there only one way to eliminate this..cut it out..if the car starts..then im your Guy..if not..weld it back..and make sure the Gas is pure(no water) then proceed to check all ingnition components..its a little more work..but thats the cheapest route...I think..it worked for me..Good luck..

I have a 2010 subaru outback that stalls constantly when coming to a stop. Any clue why this may be happening or what can be done to fix it?


It sounds like it has lost it's base idle setting. These are fly-by-wire which it is computer controlled. Has the battery been disconnected lately? Any codes stored? Could also be dirty throttle valve.

Starts fine then stalls after a couple seconds.


its could be the fuel pump, if its going bad then it could be causing stall and a gas hose could be bad to and is only allowing a little gas to motor causing it to stall also

1996 EXPLORER This TSB article is being republished in its entirety to include the 1995 4.6L Thunderbird/Cougar. ISSUE: After a 1-4 hour engine soak time, long crank times and/or long crank to start followed by a stall may occur on some vehicles. No further stalling or rough idle will occur after the engine is running. The long crank and/or stall may be due to the Idle Air Control (IAC) Valve sticking.
ACTION: Replace the IAC Valve with a revised IAC Valve if no Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) are present. Refer to the following Service Procedure for details.
SERVICE PROCEDURE
  1. Perform normal diagnostics and correct any DTCs as required by referring to the appropriate year Powertrain Control/Emissions Diagnosis (PC/ED) Service Manual.
  2. If no codes are present, replace the IAC Valve by referring to the appropriate model/year Service Manual, Section 03-14. Refer to the following Idle Air Control Valve Application Chart for proper IAC usage.

You may have to take it to a shop and have them connect their OBD tool to the computer and clear the deep memory. If you have a code left in the deep memory it can reapear like that. Good luck. Please rate me so I know how I'm doing. Thanks.
