Question about 1995 Subaru Legacy

2 Answers

My `93 subaru legacy 2.2 turns over but won`t start

Its mid summer so temp isn`t the problem It cranks for the longest time and slowly, like an old `70s car will finally catch hold and start. Now even that won`t work C ould it be the ignitor or the iginition module

There isn't a cap and rotor on that car. It has a waste spark ignition with the coil pack on the top of the motor. It sounds to me like you have low compression in one of the heads (blown head gasket).

Could be as simple as a new rotor and distributer cap. As the rotor and contacts inside the cap wear, it will take more and more revolutions to get it to catch.

1995 subaru legacy won't start


From what you have saud it sounds like the timing belt has lost a few teeth. In other words it is out of time.

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.

hi it sounds like a sensor may be faulty or getting worn, luckily you dont need equipment to check codes, look under the dash on drivers side and you will see 2 small black plugs close together plug them in with the car off but key on acc and the check light will flash codes, slow then fast. for example if 4 times slow then 2 times fast it means code 42 then just google it for the code meanings

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.
