Left side of dash lower cover, by your left knee. Just above hood release, there is a cover that flips upward to access your OBD connector. Hope this helps and have a great day.

Where is the obd port

Yours will be only OBD-1, and there are very very few places that can read OBD-1 anymore. Some Subaru dealers still have a Subaru "select monitor" scanner for OBD-1 cars. You also have to know which connector is the OBD-1 connector, it's among many connectors that are up under the drivers side dash . I hope this info helps.

I have a Subaru Legacy GX from 2000. It jumps from idle 750 rpms to 1500-2000 rpm when i barely touch the gas pedal. Ive changed the throttle position sensor, and measured 0,5-4V from closed to open. Hope...

Hi there,

Erratic idle is often due to a vacuum or air leak in one of the engine systems, or faulty sensors sending incorrect data to your engine's computer.

As your vehicle is OBD-II compliant (ie has OnBoard Diagnostics) your engine computer will have stored the appropriate fault codes.

Before you start changing any components, always have the codes extracted from your onboard computer as this process will quickly identify which circuit (or sensor) is causing this condition. Changing your TPS may have been unneccessary.

How do i retrieve 2005 subaru legacy fault codes

OBD II scanner is the only way. If you do not know someone that has one, they are cheap to buy on ebay or at parts stores. You can also go to most parts stores and they will hook it up for free. Good luck and have a great day.

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).
