Question about 1992 Subaru Legacy

1 Answer

My subaru fuel gauge isn't working too.

Did you ever find a solution for this? My fuel gauge is acting wierd too, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't, I wonder what would cause this. My guess is a ground somewhere, but I don't know where to look for it.

You probably have a faulty sending unit which is mounted in tank..There is a access cover in the trunk which affords easy access to the unit and harness connector.at this point you can verify wiring and gauge operation by jumping connector which should read E....unplugged or open will make gauge go high...good luck

Is there a relay for the gas gauge on a 1995 ford contour


Normally no. The fuel gauge reads by resistance, the position of the float in the fuel tank, that voltage is directly sent to the gauge. There is also usually a warning light that operates off of this same system but it reports when the float level is extremely low only.

If the gauge isn't working, you may want to inspect the wiring harness at the fuel tank to make sure everything is intact, nothing frayed, pulled loose, or broken under there. If the pump has been replaced, sometimes the fuel float gets into a bind when installed improperly.

Usually the only other thing that has an impact on the fuel gauge is the ground circuit to the dash display.

Good luck !

92 suburu svx it has wiring gremlins check engin light comes on sometimes but I lf I turn the car off and restart it, then it's gone. And gas gadge doesn't work sometimes come on. And no cruse...


The check engine light will set a code, to read this code you must have the system scanned with a special tool. This is not a wiring GREMLIN, trust me. As far as the gas gauge goes you will need to pull the fuel tank out and replace the gas gauge fuel level sending unit.

Subaru legacy b4 fuel gauge read empty when full?gauges jump about too


You have a fuel level sending unit that is not working properly. It is located inside the fuel tank.

Also, when you ask for help with your vehicle it would be very helpful if you could mention WHICH "Legacy" we are talking about. It seems that Subaru got "stuck" on the Legacy name - there are actally 9 choices for "Legacy" just for your model year. (see list below) There are also 2 different engines available for that year a 2.2L and a 2.5L.

Car ships replaced wires plugs o2 sencer sometimes acts like it is flooding run fine on open road.


If it acts like it is flooding while idling, but it runs fine on the road, it could be running too rich and flooding it out due to leaking injectors, bad fuel pressure regulator, or excessive fuel pressure.

I would start by replacing the Fuel Pressure Regulator since it doesn't cost as much as the injectors.
Check your fuel pressure using a Fuel Pressure Check Gauge to see if the fuel pressure regulator is maintaining the proper pressure.

Vacuum is attached to the Fuel Pressure Regulator to control system pressure. When the fuel pressure regulator is not functioning properly it causes the fuel pressure to be above normal operating pressure. This condition causes excess fuel to be injected causing a rich mixture that produces black smoke.

Fuel gauge/temp gauge not working


There are two sensors, one for ECU temp. readings with two pin connector and other one with only one wire, which has been probably disconnected when you replaced the CPC solenoid - very close position.
