    Our 1991 Subura Loyale wagon (165,000 miles - 4WD 5 speed manual) died about a month ago with a similar problem. The mechanic who looked it over thought it was the timing belts (he said there are a pair of them in the back of the engine) but to access them requires pulling the engine out of the car. I didn't have the money right now so the car is sitting dead in my driveway.



    A few years back, the car died and it was just the distributor cap being loose. Once that was tightened, the car ran again.

    cap and the small “finger” wont turn, took the whole thing apart and it all looks OK, BUT still wont turn, must be broken inside the engine Or the timing belt is torn …..
    I will find out more info and report on this post.

MOST LIKELY THE TIMING BELT(S) BROKE.

Check the wiring for cracks, it could be that the coil is damaged and wont send a spark to the plugs.
unplug one of the spark plugs out put a rcrew driver in it close to the block or something metallic. put it down, have some one crank the vehicle " do not touch the cable if coil is alive you will see a spark coming out of it and will strike you "
if coil is alive then you have a plug problem. remove all plugs and replace them.

I changed my head gasket in my 91 subaru loyale wagon and it will not start all it does is turn over. i have spark and i have timed it a million times its like there is no gas getting to the engine but my...


Double check the vacuum lines to the EGR. Did you remove these? If you stick the EGR open while attempting to start because you are applying vacuum from the wrong line, it will never start up. A stuck shut EGR will not give you this problem, so try to disconnect or swapping around the 3 lines going to it and try to start it. Remember, at Idle your vacuum is at it's highest.

'91 loyale turns over but won't start. It has gas in the line, so the problem seems electrical


take your distributar cap off and have somebody turn the car over while you see if the rotor moves if it doesnt move its the timing bet

My 91' subaru loyale is using a lot of motor oil, but the oil is not leaking. what could be the problem?


Milage could be one, have you changed weight or brands of oil? That can cause it to use oil too, or the engine could be just plane wore out.

Hello, I have a 91 subaru loyale with 200000 miles. When I am near the end of a gear and about to shift up, a rattling/knocking occurs. A friend told me it may just be the heat shield on the exhaust...


Not being able to hear the sound my self makes it hard to tell for sure. The shield for the exhaust is a good place to start. Only takes a few secounds to slide under and make sure the screws are tight and the folds are crimped tightly. The crimps loosen up occasionally and a pair of pliers will secure them easily. Good luck and have a great day.
