Manual transmission? Tow with all 4 wheels on the ground.

Automatics must be towed with NO wheels on the ground or otherwise extensively modified.

You more than likely have a hydraulic clutch. The first thing to do is make sure there is fluid in the rezevoir. Check that and get back to me.

1997 subaru legacy with awd transmission - driveshaft has been removed due to bad u-joints and trans. locked up the front wheels. What do we need to unlock them?

I have a 93 legacy. Subaru's always run in front wheel drive until a sensor tells the computer the front wheels are not turning the same speed as the rear wheels( spining on ice or sand etc.). At that point all wheels will be driven though a clutch to the rear wheels. This is not good if the car needs to be towed with the front wheels in the air! This "all wheel drive" can be shut down for towing. Under the hood on my 93, there is an in line fuse holder on the pass. side of car behind the front strut mount. Open the top of the holder and it will be empty, put in a fuse (10 or 20 amp or close) , this completes a circuit and shuts down the rear wheels. I don't know if the your 97 has this in the same place, but it must have one some place. hope this can help you.

1990 Subary Legacy engine miss at idle

If you are getting a CEL (Check Engine Light) then figure out the code. This is an OBD-I engine so you need to connect the appropriate test connector and count the blinking lights. (Google Subaru OBD-1 codes).
Now as for your problem. Most common cause is the MAF (mass air flow sensor). The square box on the air intake. Try tapping it with a screw driver, the connect inside is joined only with solder and years of stress can crack the solder joint. If your engine stalls whenever you tap it, get a new one or rip off the cover and resolder the connect. Also check the IAC (Idle Air Control solenoid).

Have you scanned the codes? You need to find out why the light is on and correct the problem. After fixing the cause, the code reader may be able to clear the codes, if not try diconnecting the battery for 20mins to 1/2 hour.

Can i tow 94 subaru legacy awd with a tow dolly

Not true. If you have the fuse in place to disconnect the rear wheels it is safe to tow on a dolly. Subaru recommends not more than 40 MPH and only for short distance if it is an automatic. Manual may be towed longer distance. Have a great day.
