92 subaru legacy. Installed new water pump, now car won't start.

I've set the timing several times. when I rotate the engine all of my marks are dead on. I have spark on number 1. When I turn on the ignition, the system primes its self. I have no clue what to do next, please help.

    Is the piston on #1 at or near top dead center? It could be on the exhaust stroke.

No spark on #1 spark plug wire? What about the others? Check it right at the coil to eliminate a faulty plug wire.

I fouled up the timing on my 1990 Subaru Legacy Wagon. Tried resetting it to the factory specs but it still wont start.


You have not set it to the factory spec, and its probably 180 degrees off. Rotate the crank to top dead center (the mark on the crank toothed pulley, align the cam timing marks, refit the belt THEN release the tensioner. Rotate the engine manually to verify that all the timing marks realign themselves.

Set camshaft timing


there should be marks on crank pully and cam belt pully. rotate motor until crank pully timing mark is on zero.the cam belt pully should be lined up with its own mark.number one piston should be at the top of its stroke (top dead centre TDC) and number one valves should be shut. if the cam belt mark is not alined with its own mark remove the belt realine the marks and refit the belt

WHat are some symptoms of a Subaru legacy fuel pump


The car won't start.

Lift up the rear back seat base cushion.
Turn the ignition on and listen for the fuel pump operation under the seat. If you hear no sound, then pull off the inspection panel there, and remove the fuel pump. Replace it, and retry.
This occurs on the Legacy from time to time, and I've replaced a few.

I just changed the timing belt on my 2002 legacy gt. but it won't start. Everything turns but It will not start. It broke while I was driving.


If you did not turn the crank to set the Top Dead Center of the first piston while putting on the new belt, then it won't start because the timing is wrong.
On the other hand, if you did a perfect job of resetting the camshafts while putting in the new belt, but the old belt broke while the engine was running, the valvetrain may be damaged already. Depending on which engine is in your legacy, it is likely an Interference engine, meaning that when the timing belt breaks and the pistons are going up while the valves are going down, they hit each other and the valves get bent. You can do a compression leakdown test to find out if this has happened to you.

1998 Subaru Legacy L - Is there a timing belt?


yes, there is a big belt and it is a job to replace, remove just about everything up front, radiator, timing covers, fan, belts, pulleys, hoses, etc, I think you change the water pump at the same time, not sure, But get the new belt with timing marks on it, they come in real handy, clamp the cams so they don't retract, before pulling the belt, put a pin in the belt tensioner hole if it has one, then pull the belt off, align all the marks, they have to be perfect, or don't bother. When it is all set to the marks, release the tension on the tensioner and spin the engine by hand with spark plugs removed , a couple times, when it comes around to one mark again, check them all, they all should be right on the mark. If you can't find a belt with the marks on it already, mark the old belt, with a white out pen or junk yard pen, relay the marks to the new belt. Then try it, it is most important that they line up. Crank and cams, all have marks on them. Hope this helps.

Timing is off


If your timing belt broke chances are you have bent valves and damaged pistons. The vehicle may never start unless you repair the engine damage.

Like to know how to set timing on a 92 suberu. all


The '92 Subaru Legacy uses a distributorless ignition system. No adjustment is possible/necessary. The computer adjusts the timing continuously.

You can check the timing if you have a timing light. The spec for engines with a turbo charger is 15 degrees plus or minus 8 degrees at 700 RPM. Non-turbo engines are 20 degrees plus or minus 8 degrees at 700 RPM.

Info on replacing water pump on Subaru Legacy and how much work there is attached. Also on 1992 wagon is there a rotor for the spark or is there just a coil. Cheers Terry


The water pump is run by the timing belt.Involves the draining the antifreeze,removing the radiator/condensor fan motors,harmonic balancer,alt./ac./p.s. belts, timing covers and timing belt.Along with a new pump,a new timing belt should installed.Timing marks are critical and it should be repairer by a garage.Should take about 1 to 2 hours or so to do if everything comes apart easy.Also there is no cap or rotor,only a coil pak.Hope this gives you a better idea.
