Have you put the OBD scanner on it to find the problem. That would be a good place to start. the computer should have stored a code with the problem.

Why does my 98 subaru legacy sputter and die?


Clean your MAF sensor and throttle body. If it's dirty it will send wrong voltage to ECU, running either too lean or too rich, most likely too rich and flooded the fuel injectors.

Car starts and dies straight away


sounds like the immobiliser is dead. 1996 immobiliser in south africa qould leave the car dead but 97 onwards cuts out the fuel supply so car starts and dies. it might be fuel relay but i doubt it. try throqing fuel into the intake manually. if it stays on for longer its prob not immobiliser.

possible but sounds like you have a misfire occurring is your check engine light on if so this will give you a code determining which cylinder it is occurring on.i would start out with new plugs and wires especially if you know they have not been done lately

95 liberty also cuts out while driving


Sounds like either a catalytic converter starting to become blocked or at the other end it could be the fuel filter becoming pluged. A fuel filter will start to plug and a slow flow will starve the motor and cause it to die by not allowing the delivery of fuel to be consistant enough. Good luck and have a good day.

Please have the computer scanned for codes. Autozone or Pepboys will do it task for free. It sounds like it could be related to your fuel sustem or exhaust. But I need more info to be more spesific. Good luck.

Fuel problem


When you turn your ignition key to the on position, you should hear the fuel **** make a whrring sound . it means that your fuel pump is good. if not , the fuel **** is bad. Even if you took off the fuel pump and powered it directly. That does not mean it is good evev if it turns a bit. It has to have enough pressure.replace the fuel pump. You should have no problems after that.
