Question about 1995 Subaru Legacy

1 Answer

Subaru Legacy 1995, will not start. Battery is fine, replaced battery connections; fuel filter, spark plugs and wires about 1 year old. Engine turns over and over, and over, just can't get it to ''fire,'' if you will. Problem began with randomly not starting (no previous symptoms), then started about 12 hours later and ran fine, then couple weeks went by and it randomly didn't start, but then about 4 hours later it started and ran just fine. Then recently it decided to not start at all.

Was the check engine light on? have it scanned for a code if it was. remove the timing cover just enough to peek and just make sure the timing belt isnt broken. do you smell gas coming out of the exhaust while cranking the engine for 10 seconds? if not it could be gas related. or pull one of the plug wires off a spark plug and hold it a 1/4 inch or a little less away from the engine ground (ANY METAL PART OF THE ENGINE)see if it archs while cranking for 5 seconds, if it does not arch suspect that the camm and or crank sensor is a bad. PLEASE NOTE: this information is based on what you have told me. however if you have it scanned and give me the code pulled i will be better equipped to help you. if u run the tests i gave you and come up with nothing you may have to take it to your local technician for more complex tests to be done.

No spark


no spark normally means that the coil is burnt or connections are corroded.check to see if you are getting power from the coil,if not clean all contacts and retry.if nothing try another coil.also check the spark plug wires and spark plugs cause it has been sitting for an awful long time.

I have Subaru legacy 1995. When I start the engine it chokes immediedly down. There is pleanty of fuel..but have the check engine light coming on and off. The sensour was replaced 3 years ago.


Check your fuses. If you can have your car hooked up to a computer and check the code. The code will tell you where to start. Check your spark plugs and wires. Check for broken vaccum hoses or wires.

1994 subaru legacy hesitates to start after first try then starts immediately i just recently replaced the battery


Hi,

You may have a problem with your fuel pump or your fuel filters. This is usually caused by a lack of flow of fuel to the engine immediately when it has been sitting.

Also need to check your spark plugs for the spark and make sure there are no problems with lead wires to same.

Weak throttle response 92 subaru legacy


I would have have the TPS (Throttle Position Switch) tested, it sends a signal to the ECM of where the position of the throttle is so the ECM can determine how much fuel and air and spark to give to the engine. Have you replaced the spark plugs, fuel filter, air filter, spark plug wires? Have the coil tested also to see if it is putting out enough spark. Do you have any Check Engine Light coming on?

 Disconnect the wiring connector of the fuel

 Crank the engine for more than five seconds.
If the engine starts, let the engine run until it
stops.
 After turning IG switch OFF, connect the wiring
connector of the fuel pump.
 Disconnect ground cable from battery.
2) Loosen the screw of the hose clamp and pull
off the hose from the filter.

2000 Subaru Outback wont start.. no fuel.


Are your injectors firing into the engine? You can buy a test kit to double check that. Is there spark at the plugs?

I had the same problem sorta with my civic it turns out after doing timing belt water pump, and many gaskets i had a huge vaccum leak.

Also check your fuel lines to see if they are loosing pressure somewhere

95 Subaru Legacy won't start/radiator fan stays on


It's one of three things:  air, spark, or fuel.

It's most likely not air.  So I'll rule that one out.

That leaves fuel or spark.  I'd remove a spark plug wire from the coil and set a screwdriver nearby.  It it arcs, then you know you have spark.  There's a good chance you may need to replace something in your ignition system.

However, seeing as how quickly it just "died," I might also suggest the fuel pump.

1999 Subaru legacy will not start


Check your terminal connections, if they are loose they will need to be inspected for breaks. If they are broken you will need to replace the connection. Make sure they are clean and free of corrosion.

Other possible Problems
If the car wont turn over your starter could be bad.
If it turns over but wont start it could be any number of these problems.
Coil Pack
Plug Wires
Spark Plugs
EBX (Engine Brain Box)
CBX (Chassis Brain Box)
Crank Sensor
Fuel Pump
Fuel Rail
Fuel Injector

Good luck

1995 Subaru Legacy will crank but won't run.


You can start by checking the fuel pump and testing it for current but it may also be in the starting system so check to see if the starting solenoid is working properly.
