I have a 97 Impreza L 2.2...the check engine light came on recently and is staying on. I want to take it in, but the place I want to go is about an hour away. Would it be ok to make this trip? The light just came on today and I have driven it much since...

Your timing is fixed, controled by the computer and non-adjustable. Check spark plugs and plug wires. Is your check engine light on? If so, you need to check the code and repair acordingly. If no light, then you may have headgasket problems. Head gaskets will do just what you say is wrong and is a tipical Subaru problem.
OBD II, didnt come out till late 96 ..so if your vehicle is a 97 or better then, you have this system, but since you have a 93, you shuld have a OBD I... But some repair shops still have that availiable, and they can reset it for you..Or you can try unhooking the battery for a few minutes and then go test drive it.. If the light comes back on, then you may have a problem somewhere...But if it doesnt, then it was just a glitch within the electrical system, an you'll be fine..Goodluck...
You have OBD2 technology, to clear the stored codes you need a scan-tool. the cheapest one out there is the actron mini. All it does is read codes, give you the code number, give you the readiness status, and allows you to clear stored codes. It goes for $80. and most part stores carry it.
I could not find a code for the neutral switch . The neutral safety switch only works when you start the vehicle, so it will not start in gear. I would take the car to another shop for a second opinion.
i had this problem with mine if your cable spins wen the car is moving its not the gear box end or the cable its the speed sensor in the speedo its self its very easy to fix you have to strip the speedo out of the case the sensor is only small and on the under side of the speedo the sensor is about 50 mm long and 10 mm wide change that and it should be ok
oh remember to reset your ecu
I should have realized nothing is free anymore-------- but how underhand of you to take advantage of people who need help , and you pretend to be 'free' I shall go to my Subaru dealer, where I can talk face to face with a real professional.Shame on you.
