Check your regulator
if u have a multimeter, run it across ur battery when the cars running, it should be around 13-14v's. if its lower it should be that ur alternators not chargeing, if its really high it might be ur regulator

Have your charging system and belts checked. Your problem is in the charging system, belt, alternator, regulator or just in that area. Could be a loose wire but you have to check your charging system.

94 subaru legacy wagon stalls when engine is warm then starts when cool


Have the battery and alt tested for free at the local parts store.
Tell them what it's doing, and start suspecting a fuel issue.
Could be getting the right amount of fuel but not burning it. (plugs, wires, coil)
Or could not be getting enough fuel.

Still hard to say, so get the charging/power system checked first.
Let me know what you find out as I'm real curious now.

Same happened to a friend and it was the fuel pump....
Same for another friend and it was 2 bad coil packs.

It is probably the starter . It is becoming heat soaked. When starters get old, heat build up can cause starter motor and solenoids to stick. Once it cools down parts can unstick. Get a new starter. Have it load tested.

It sounds like your alternator might be starting to go bad and the Battery Light is coming on because it is not charging the battery correctly. Have your Alternator checked with a volt meter, it should be reading 13 to 14 volts if working correctly. If not, replace your alternator.

if i remember right if the battery light and check engine light is on, your alternators may be bad. your battery may just have enough to keep it running for a minute or so. you can take it out and get it tested at a auto parts store. or try charging your battery for awhile and see if it stays on longer. if this is completely wrong let me know

Stalling


Possibly faulty ignition module is the problem, stalls when engine is hot when you sit for a while it cools off and runs again until it heats up again, those are usually the symptoms of a bad ignition module and after a while it may give out all together and not run at all, usually if the module is at fault it shuts down the fuel pump so the engine don't load up with fuel, do to when engine continuously cranks over the injectors never stop squirting fuel and flood the engine do to lack of spark which is produced by the module, this could possibly be your problem.
