SOURCE: Where is the knock sensor located on a 2.5 Subaru outback 1998?

directly below the throttle body on the drivers side of the engine block. Has a white connector attached to a single black wire lead. I had to remove the black plastic piece that connects to the throttle body and the air filter housing, in order to see/get at it. Easy fix once you find it. Haynes manual shows it in a different location, so don't confuse yourself looking at the diagram.

If you have any of the large chain auto parts stores in your area, call them and ask if they do free scans; most do.
If Subaru has maintained the same procedures for a while, and you have checked fluids, etc., you can try resetting the light via the ignition switch:
-Turn on the ignition (don't start) - switch it rapidly between the 'ignition on' and 'ignition off' positions three times.
If the error has cleared itself (not uncommon), the check light will reset. If the problem is still present, it will either stay or come back on.
Our Su has done this a couple of times and with the scanner we have on hand, there was never any particular repeated problem. Just a computer glitch/hiccough -

It is not as difficult to do for a determined and careful person who knows his/her ways.

1. Write done the code of your radio.
2. Disconnect the negative battery terminal.
3. Locate the positive (red) wire of the battery to where it ends, and remove it with a 12-mm socket and wrench. Remove the other thin positive wire attached to the solenoid.
4. Loosen and remove the starter-motor bolts with a 14-mm sockect and wrench. Then carefully take out the starter-motor.
5. Exchange the starter-motor for a rebuilt one at the dealer's or any competent autoparts store.
6. Reverse removal procedure for installation.

Cranking but not starting until second try.gas smell.Gas line replaced.Had spark plugs, fuel filter changed.Still having starting issues and today noticed leakage near gas tank.


Gas line was only repaired, not replaced. I don't repair gas lines because of this problem. The entire line is replaced, both of them, supply and return. From the tank to the injector rail. This is the reason for the long start. Loose of fuel pressure.

Do you mean it has no spark when you say it will not fire or do you mean it just will not start? Make sure the timing belt is not broken if it has spark
