SOURCE: what oil for my 1995 Subaru Legacy 250T?

I know I will get some argument on this one, but regardless of what manufacturers recommend, the best possible lubricant is a good synthetic. They far exceed any manufacturers needs in both lubricity long life and resistance to thermal changes. they do not burn off or form deposits readily and work in any temperature climate. as far as rating, a 10-40 or 50 works for everything. With synthetics those #s are almost a decoration on the can because in reality they cover a far larger span. Personally I would not use mobil1 (too much additive package not enough real stuff) on the other end, amsoil is one of the best (they even offer a 0w50 oil)
Whatever you use make sure you keep it clean. A good oil filter is essential and if extending oil change intervals, you can just change filter and any oil lost.
I know I've ranted, but the actual lab testing results and notes I've made over the years is far longer!
good luck whatever you decide on!

Oil is 10-30 and the type of oil filter is up to you, you can go cheap or you can go expensive it is all up to you what you want to run in your car.

SOURCE: 93 subaru legacy starting problems

Probably a short or loose connection between battery and starter motor, or on either end of cables. Id look there before swapping out starter.On cold days you might put a heater under car for a few hours before using it,do this carefully as to avoid a car fire, or look into a block heater for your engine.

Check The Vehicle Speed Sensors.

The Legacy has 2 Vehicle Speed Sensors (VSS): VSS1 is located inside of the transaxle; VSS2 is located in the combination meter assembly.

VSS1

  1. Disconnect the electrical harness from the transaxle.
  2. Connect an ohmmeter across the transaxle's electrical harness terminals 9 and 16.
  3. The resistance should be 450-650 ohms.
  4. After testing, reconnect the electrical harness.
VSS2
  1. Remove the instrument cluster from the instrument panel.
  2. Disconnect the electrical connectors and the speedometer cable from the instrument cluster.
  3. Connect an ohmmeter or continuity tester across the combination meter terminals 7 and 11.
  4. Insert a small screwdriver in the speedometer cable drive socket.
  5. Rotate the speedometer drive and note the continuity across the VSS terminal. Continuity should turn ON/OFF 4 times per speedometer drive revolution.

1992 subaru legacy 2.2 turbo rough idle fixes


Hi doesnt sound like anything major as long as it doesnt smoke bad or knock from the engine, it sounds like a decent service would help, try replacing the air filter, fuel filter, give it a decent oil change ( i use castrol magnetec in my part of the world), give the idle air control valve a good clean with mass airflow cleaner or similar. If thats dirty it may fix your problem when cleaned. The hot idle should be approx 500rpm and cold should be approx 1000rpm hope this helps

Can you even adjust the lifters on a 1993 subaru legacy


You may just have aerated oil going past oil pump seal and causing lifter noise. Replacing the seal will cure that. There is no valve adjustment noted in the Subaru maintenance schedule, so I would not.

Do 1991 L series subaru legacy wagons have adjustable valves?


This model does not and uses a hydrallic lash adjuster that works something like the old lifters did. Generally when these collapse or lose hydrallic pressure,a rattling occurs in the valve train. Most generally this is a sign of an oil pressure deficit and may require a new oil pump then hopefully all lash adjusters will pump back up and close the rocker to valve clearance stopping the rattle.

When my 1996 Legacy had stood all night out in the cold (this winter and spring) I noticed that putting the gear from 1st to 2nd was problemmatic. It felt a bit like two toothed wheels not correctly...


I would say, from your explanation, that the gear oil in it may be too heavy of a weight. Was it changed, or maybe from a previous owner? I would recommend the stock fluid and weight as this is always a safe bet. Hope this may get you free'd up for the next cold weather!

Valve adjustment


The EA82 does not use shims. Ticking almost always caused by a failed oil pump to engine block gasket failure. The gasket slowly fails which then allows the oil pump to pump air along with the oil. Replace the "Mickey Mouse" oil pump gasket.

Hydraulic lifters


Yes, but there is still a lot of stuff to move out of the way to get in there and pull them. I would try all the chemical remedies for sticky lash adjusters (oil flush, marvel's mystery oil, etc.) first, then check the timing belt to see if a worn timing belt has let it slip a tooth and the valve timing is off for that reason before digging into the lifters. There used to be a forum that had video and audio from a subaru legacy this model before and after swapping out a bad lifter. Google for it and see if the noise matches.
