Question about 1995 Subaru Legacy

1 Answer

I have a 1995 subaru legacy sedan automatic non turbo with a EJ25 motor. it will start when cold drives for about 5 minutes when you turn it off and leave it for around 30 minutes it wont start theres fuel but no spark (power is going to coil tested with a light) leave it for a while (any thing from a few hours to over night) then it starts again.sometimes you can go most the day with no problems.when the car is running it does not miss a beat.

    fuel does not seem to be the problem ,as i stated when it wont start there is no spark, but leave it for sometime and it starts (plenty of spark). could it be the coil? (it only has one coil which all 4 leads come out of and no dissy). when it does decide to start theres no problem with starting or running, (ie, no misses or loss of power etc).

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Please clean the throttle plates, idle air control valve, fuel filter and dump some injector cleaner into the gas tank. Also check there is no vacuum leaks. Try a can of Sea foam through the fuel system to clean the system and to enhance the mileage.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

    Hi


    Please check the battery connections, they might be loose. Or there would be carbon deposited in and around the connections. Use a metal wire brush to clean the connections. Also try replacing the wires. If this doesn't fix the issue then check for carbon deposits on the coil connections. If this doesn't resolve your issue then i'll suggest you to replace the coil.


    Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


    Thanks

I have a 92 legacy sedan with bad motor. Bought a 92 legacy wagon turbo. Do I have to change wire harness in front with computor, or can I change just computor?


hi im presuming your old car is non turbo if so you will have to change a lot of parts over to make it work, you will have to replace entire engine loom, the ecu will need changed over then the fuel pump and all of the fuel lines will need to be replaced with the bigger turbo model ones to keep up also the trans will bolt strait up but will be the major weak point so swap over if possible.

My 2000 Subaru Legacy shudders when driving...


Temperature sensors check to make sure it is warmed up before allowing system to work properly. This keeps the motor from being worked too hard before is has reached temperature. Remember that aluminum has to be at proper temperature and expansion to make all parts work properly.Hope this helps and have a great day.
