Question about 1997 Subaru Outback

1 Answer

I have a 1997 subaru outback. I drove it all over town today and after it sat for about 4 hours I went to start it and it is running rough. Almost like it is not getting enough gas. When I get to a stop sign it will stall but once I get going it has all kinds of power with a miss every now and then. Any sollutions?

If you are getting sparks at the positive cable when attaching I would suspect a hard short in the system. Check that the starter has not shorted.

I have a 1997 Subaru Legacy Outback, and my AC is weak.


my suggestion would be to go to another shop,most likely the freon is low,pressure should be measured on the high side and low side, a fully charged system should read 125 to 135 high 25-30 low and these pressure will either rise or fall with ambient temp and humidity but not drastically,you also may have an engine oil leak causing that smell,it may also be possible that the a/c belt is slipping,if the freon 134a is leaking the repair shop may install a leak dye in the system to aid in tracking small leaks this is a good investment good luck

EGR Flow Malfunction, and sometimes a Cylinder 4 Misfire.


How does the oil look? Is it milky or is there any discoloration? Is any moisture or steam vapor coming out of the exhaust pipe? The EGR fault is most likely being triggered from the cylinder missfire. Sounds like you might have a head gasket blown, and/or a cracked or warped cylinder head from the overheating.
You can run a compression test to help determine this.
Good luck...i hope this helps you troubleshoot the problem.

1999 subaru outback sport 5 speed,started driving rough,bouncy


I would first check and see if you have a build up of off ice on the inside of the wheels. If this started all of a sudden it might also be a brake problem like I have run into in the last few weeks of bad weather. The duel caliper brakes had one caliper piston stick and let the brake pad be uneven causing a vibration in the front end. Sometimes it would release and work fine. Hope its the ice in your wheels, but if not I would take a look at brakes before spending a lot of money. Good luck and have a good day.
