Question about 1991 Subaru Legacy

1 Answer

I was driving my 1991 subaru legacy and it just died. It still turns over and is not out of gas but it won't start back up. I assume it is a fuel or spark problem but I am not very familiar with fuel injection systems and right now it is kind of isolated and i have not been able to scan it for codes yet. any help would be great!

Either an ignition module or a sensor on a vehicle this old ,think the sensor might be inside the distributor on this one,and the module under the coil

Hi my 91 subaru legacy was going jujst fine and then all of the sudden while i was pushing on the pedal , the car just stopped moving and died. and wont start back up. wont even turn over.

Hi Reese, what do you mean by "won't turn over"? Does the engine rotate but not fire, or does it not even rotate? If it won't rotate, perhaps your alternator belt was loose or worn and the battery didn't get charged. If the battery is good and the engine rotates, then the alternator has possibly died. The other possibility, is that the fuel pump had died.

1991 subaru legacy turns over but will not start check every on it has spark and fuel. driving it one day it as running then just died? so can u help me please.

Possibly the timing belt is broken. How does the engine sound when you crank the starter. Does it sound "normal" or does it sound fast and quiet? Have someone else crank the starter, can you feel any pressure coming out of the tailpipe? If the timing belt is broken the engine will sound very quiet and there will be no pressure coming out the tailpipe.

1991 Subaru Legacy L 2.2L Has Fuel but No Spark. Cranks over but will not Start

No spark = bad coil, bad coil connections(check all for tightness), bad distributor cap or rotor(assuming vehicle doesn't use coil packs, which i doubt for a 91)

Dies immediately when let off of the gas.

Check the idle speed and the fuel mix settings.
