Question about 1996 Subaru Legacy

1 Answer

1996 Subaur Legacy Wagon with the 2.2L powerplant boggs down when accelerating (to the point of almost quiting). No power what so ever. Will bogg down under any kind of load. Check engine light comes on periodically, but I don't notice any difference in the crappy way the car runs - engine light on or engine light off.

Bogs down when throtttling,even at high speeds


Clean your MAF (mass air flow sensor).

Google a Youtube video on how to do it.

You just need electrical parts cleaner or MAF cleaner.

1988 cutlass ciera boggs down when i accelerate


Hello! You have symptoms that point to incorrect fuel pressure.
First have the fuel pressure tested as follows; #1...engine running at idle: 13- 20 psi. #2...key on engine off: 23-30 psi. If pressure is incorrect change the fuel pump.

Does the engine "surge" at idle? If so, check the "fuel injection pressure regulator idle air control valve". Apply a vacuum to it; If fuel flows it is not the problem.
