SOURCE: 93 subaru legacy starting problems

Probably a short or loose connection between battery and starter motor, or on either end of cables. Id look there before swapping out starter.On cold days you might put a heater under car for a few hours before using it,do this carefully as to avoid a car fire, or look into a block heater for your engine.

SOURCE: 93 Subaru Legacy front suspension problem after CV joint replaced

the air bag is not ok, this is exactly what they do when they have a leak, these air bags are shot at about 100,000 miles, they start to leak at the creases, u will see cracks there.

I have a 1999 Ford Taurus that would not heat, took to shop they flushed the system, replaced the water pump and it ran hot after thet flushed the system took it back they flushed the system again and

Did you have red antifreeze prior to the flushing? Ford engines are generally aluminium and should be using blue antifreeze which is suitable for aluminium engine blocks! I think the antifreeze is reacting to the flush and use blue!

Went to start my 93 subaru legacy and when I turned the key, flywheel started to turn over then stopped. Tried it again and same thing. Waited a little bit and then nothing but a click and could hear...

i suspect either the ignition switch is worn out or the starter.
test the starter first then the ignition switch. both are fairly easy to replace and not too costly. if you are a diy person then do a screw driver starter test. This will determine if the starter works and usually how well. I buy the starter rebuild kits online for $35. The ignition switch is also around the same price and easier to change than the starter. The ignition switch is accessed by removing the lower steering column cover then the two screws for the upper cover. Then unplug the ignition switch then remove the holding screw. sometimes the wiring is taped up carefully remove the tape. when installing the new switch make sure the key is out so that the new switch will align correctly

Car is over heating. I sat in my drive with the car running at 3,000 rpm's and it did not over heat. I drive about three miles and still did not over heat. I was stoped at a light, when the light turned...

Check the water pump to see if it shows signs of a small leak, or water showing at the weep hole located around the top of the pump. If it is bad it will act as you have described. Are there un-traced leaks showing up on hoses or around the radiator? Check for that. Has she added so much water that the mixture only boils instead of cools? Check the color, consistency of the coolant. Should feel real slippery.

99 subaru legacy overheats...

it may have a blown head gasket if it keep over heating or there could be just an air lock in the cooling water,, you will need to bleed the air out to stop the over heat as the water is not going around the engine its not opening the thermostat so it cant bleed its self take off a water pipe thats the higest pipe you can find it may have a bleed vent in a pipe were you can bleed it from ,,,top up the rad and header tank take off the bleed nippel when water with no air is coming out and the jobs a good un? run the motor for a time or go for a drive to check its not ever heating again and the heater should by now be blowing hot air,, top up the rad and header tank when its coold down

My 1997 Subaru Outback Legacy Limited started jerking when in Drive- between first and 2nd gears. I then started driving in 2nd / 3rd, then drive. When in traffic very long time, would not engage at all...

Sounds like the transmission has reached the end of service life. I have a 93 that did the same thing. It would drive until the transmission heated up then nothing, except for reverse. I had a TRW rebuild transmission installed and now my 93 Legacy has 500,000 miles. $2,200 to repair vs $25,000 to replace. The only thing you would miss is the new car smell for a few weeks. But you can keep $20,000 plus.

Severe Over-heating

Hi there. I had a lincoln towncar around the same year do the same thing and it was the waterpump. I doubt its just the gasket since it is overheating all the time now. The pump on mine was for the 5.0(302) it was 28 dollars but it was not real easy to change as far as waterpumps go. I would get a hayes or chiltons manual if your not real farmiliar with these before attempting to change it.

My 93 nisson quest has no heat but is overheating

bad water pump or clogged system. is the car overheating, if so water pump. take off the radiator cap, then start your car, if you can see antifreeze swirling around, pump is ok, if it looks like it's standing still, waterpump. And a clogged system, might not be the only problem, it's just the more, common issues.
