Question about 1990 Subaru Legacy

1 Answer

My 1990 Subaru Legacy L wagon keeps shutting off. The car starts up great, will drive for about 100 yards and then shut off. The car would previously jump up and down in the RPMs before shutting off, now there is no jump just dies. The check engine light is not on please help any advice would be appreciated.

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.

1990 subaru legacy wagon fuel injectors are not getting fuel to start it


Check the pressure to the fuel rail then check it at the line before the fuel pressure regulator, it should be between 55 and 80 psi at the rail and 100 psi before the regulator, if you don't have pressure before the regulator then you have a fuel pump issue, if the rail pressure is low then you may need to replace the regulator.

Automatic shift lever doesn't match actual gear on dash display.


My 1994 legacy has a switch on top of the steering column that turns the parking lights on and off. See if yours does too. Don't know about the shift lever.
