Question about 1992 Subaru Legacy

1 Answer

95 liberty also cuts out while driving

I have a similar problem with a 95 Liberty GX. It specifically cuts out when I push past 3000rpm on a slight uphill gradient - its just sort of powers down slowly losing revs till it stops. Will restart fine after a minute or two, and yes the POWER light does flash when it restarts. Oddly, it is hard to get it to happen twice in succession - it usually behaves if I then push it past 3000rpm again on the same drive.
My mechanic hasn't been able to repeat the problem, and suggested it might some sort of muffler blockage, as the muffler is original and have loose baffles or something to that effect? Any suggestions welcomed, as the problem makes overtaking quite unsafe.

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.

    Yep... fuel filter first. 90% of the time these symptoms are just the fuel filter. Replace it and do nothing else. 10 to 1 it will be fine.

2004 Jeep Liberty Noise/Problem

if you are driving on hard surface ( sealed roads) in 4wd then don't as if damages the drive train
what is happening is that there is a torque wind up from the front and rear wheels running at different distances and the cluck you hear is when at some point that torque is released and allows the selection to disengage or engage
4wd is for use in slipper conditions unless you have an AWD which will become 4WD when required by you after selection of the control
