Unless you are mechanically inclined and know what you are doing to fix this car i would leave it alone could be costly to get repaired

I have a very hi pitched whine anytime I accelerate: if I keep it level in 5th gear its not too bad , I'm sure its the turbo but I don'tknow whats wrong

unfortunatly turbos do not have a long life span, they spin extremley fast and they run off of very hot exhaust gas, it sounds like your is dieing, if its under warranty bring it to the dealer, subaru is very good about standing behind thier vehicals.

Can you install turbo charge on a ej 15 subaru engin and does it make sence


It is possible but to be honest the cost involved and the work to do it does not really justify fitting one. If you are looking for power increase there are other much cheaper methods of getting good BHP from these engines, such as twin carburetters, in fact it would be cheaper to buy carbs and you would get a hell of a lot more power from then than a regular turbo.

Hope this helps

Ive got a 95 subaru wrx single turbo has been going ok bit doesent idle perfict and now when we get up in the revs say anywere over 2 to 2 and a half thousand it just runs like a bag of **** please help

The most common cause is due to a proper tune up.Plugs,wires,gas filter,air filter and if all is well on that aspect of the engine I would change the EGR valve due to fuel mixture and advance control due to turbo.........Hope this helps you out.

Where are the spark plugs in subaru legacy gt 2005?

Subaru's are horizontally opposed engines. This means that the cylinder heads are actually pointed out toward the wheels.
If you look out close to where the engine and the inner fender meet, just a little in going back to the center, you will find two on each side on the 2.5 non-turbo. These have plug wires going to them.
On a turbo, the plugs are actually right in the side of the engine, going into the tops of the cylinder heads below the ignition coils which you remove first, to get to them. The same is true with the 3.0 engine.

1994 subaru impreza turbo engine knocks when revving the car

hi mate try a thicker grade oil i'm not an expert on the turbo charged horizontaly apposed engine ...but i take it you are not the first keeper of the car so its probably had the wotsits raced out of it and seeing that its around the m reg it stands a chance age and the odd boy racer are unfortunately against it as i beleive that year was the first of the impreza ...try a 15 or a 20/40 oil failing that take the air intake pipe off and checkfor oil you will get a degree of oil in the pipe but not bucket loads good luck !!

Subaru turns over but will not start and engine smokes.

I wont ever buy a car unless i know i can fix it. and depending on the price. if its not running i will never buy a car from someone i dont know for more than 100 bucks depending on condition of car. i dont care how much work has been done.

now on to the can smoke for a number of reasons but the only way to check any real problems is if it runs. could be improper head job, could be turbo seals, but car would run with poor seals. check plugs for oil burning, but these are not very easy to check. subarus are not cheap to fix. so with that good luck.
im not a fan of these due to expensive parts cause its a subaru. unless there is something real special about this car i would walkaway
