My 96 subaru legacy also keeps stalling

After I start my car it runs for a couple of seconds then it dies. I can keep it running by giving gas but as soon as I let off it dies.

sounds to me like you need a new head gasket. top off your coolant overflow bottle. run vehicle as if nothing was happening and in few days check level of coolant in the bottle. OR you can check the cylinders for coolant intrussion by removing all 4 spark plugs in the morning after you use the car the day before. You will most likely find coolant down there. (check to see if the pistons are nice and clean on top / washed by the coolant) I have done a few and have seen a few beeing replaced for the same symptom. RUNS ROUGH FOR FEW SECONDS AFTER START UP. Thats the coolant in cylinder washing the plug down, resulting in misfire until the coolant burnes of inside the cylinder, that's when the car will run OK. Let me know what you find.

SOURCE: 92 nissan sentra Stalls while idling

I had this kind of problem on my car a couple of times. It can either be the idle control valve or overheating. you can clean the idle control valve or replace it. the one for my car was like $140 at the dealership.

SOURCE: what causes pulsating brakes in a 96 subaru

Assuming you are not referring to the pulsation experienced when the anti-lock braking system engages, you should replace the rotors and the pads while you are at it. The days of turning or resurfacing rotors are over. They are cheap.

2005 Subaru Legacy 198K miles intermittent stalling starts to idle rough. Putting it in neutral and giving gas will keep it from stalling. The check engine doesn't come on and there aren't any faults.

something that wont throw a fault code
i am thinking coil and plugs
even fuel pump relay or bad fuel

03 subaru Legacy 2.5 won't start . Turns over but won't fire. I have replaced fuel pump , fuel filter , and the pressure regulator. Pure fuel in the intake and starts fine What could be the problem

Does it start and keep running? Or does it start and just run for a few seconds? If it starts and runs for a few seconds you need to check your fuses first. It could be the fuel pump or EFI fuse or a few others.
If you prime it and it keeps running, well, you've got me there.

Car startsfor a few seconds then dies

Fuel pump and filter are suspected, consider replacement.

Starts dies

an alternator won't stall your car, the battery provides power to keep the spark going. It sounds like you could have some bad fuel, if you're able to run the throttle manually with your foot and keep it going that would indicate idle control. but if it stalls still when you are giving it gas. I would guess a fuel supply issue, either water in your gas, or fuel pump. Good Luck.

Starts when cold

Sounds like a bad ignition system, if its firing poorly through your distributor once it warms up its not firing hot enough.

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
