Question about 1986 Subaru Gl 2 Door

Open Question

I have an 1986 subaru gl 10 1.8 multiport injected. the fuel pump is not runnig when I turn the key on. I have checked the pump by applying power to it at the pump and the pump than runs. when I check for 12 volts at the pump with the when the key is turned on I get a -.1 reading so I than reverse the wires of my multi meter and I get .1 when I shut the key off it is zero. I checked the fuse in the fuse box for it. that was good is there a fuse link after or the fuel pump relay. also where is the relay located. This one has me stumped.

I have a 1986 Subaru GL 10 Turbo wagon and it loses power at higher RPM. It acts like it's not getting enough fuel/air. I replaced the fuel filter and still have this problem.

Start simple. Check that all of your spark plug wires are securely attached. Consider testing or replacing the coil pack. It can also be a bad MAP sensor.

Can you drive to a local auto parts store and get a free code reading? That might help give you an idea what is wrong.

How many miles on your subie? Is it fuel injected? I think Subes still had a few carbureted models even up to about 1988.
Check the timing, and if it's injected have the fuel pressure checked for proper pressure.
After it starts, does it run good? Might want to checlk your vacuum hoses for any leaks.
Good luck.

I have no power to the fuel pump , n when i remove the fuelpump relay n use a jumper wire i still have no power at the fuel pump on a 1988 subaru gl wagon 1.8 liter fuel injected

I would suspect that the Fuse has blown, or the wire has been cut? to that supply wire to the pump, try running a lead directly back to the Positive of the battery and see if that works OK? If so locate and replace the fuse, and or fix the broken wire.

Has a misfire's on cly 1,3,4 and I have replaced spark plugs, wires, coil, rotor button, and rotor cap. I have had a fuel pump go out but I have replaced it and I am only getting 45 to 50 psi at the fuel...

Im sure if its fuel causing your misfire but here are the fuel pressure specs depending on which one pertains to yours if your has a TBI Throttle Body Injected the the fuel pressure should be approx.9 to 13 psi if you have Multiport Fuel Injected (MFI) then the pressure should be approx. 41 to 47 psi if its Central Multiport Fuel Injected (CMFI) then the pressure should be approx.58 to 64 if you have Central Sequential Electronic Fuel Injected (CSEFI) then the pressure should be approx. 55 to 61 all these pressures are key on engine off if you start the engine and take a reading then you will have a decrease in reading by about 3 to 10 psi.

Fuel pump heats up and malfunctions??? HaHa that's a good one. Tell the dope that told you that, I said the fuel pump is only going to get as hot as the fuel it is sitting in....or at least, lets hope so, unless you like to see bombs go off!

The best advice I can give you is this:
1. Check to see if there are any fault codes in your computer. (On an '86 Subaru, the computer might not be very smart, but check it anyway.)

2. If there are no codes, run the engine untill it stalls, then pull one of the spark plugs and see if there is any spark when you try to start it.

3. If it has spark, then you should check to see if it is getting fuel.

You have to find out which system is failing (Spark or Fuel) before you can even guess what is causing the problem.

Where is the fuel pump located on a 1984 subaru Gl ?

I have a 1984 Gl Wagon 4WD; the fuel pump is located on the passenger side, on the frame rail under the back door, just in front of the rear wheel. It and the fuel filter are accessed by dropping the mounting plate that also serves as a protective plate. Again, this is the 4WD non-turbo EA81 engine GL Wagon; could be different on the 2WD version.

HELP 86 GL-10 /getting hot

This can be a slipping belt, a worn out water pump, a damage fan or the worst of all a burnt cylinder head gasket. Turbos running at high pressures tend to blow the cylinder head gaskets. Also check the radiator.
