Well before you do ,have a couple of them pulled out and check for a gas smell or even a black carbon build up. anyone of those can prevent a no start. but i would definetly tech a experience tech with you before buying. never buy a car if your not sure of some of the problems without starting or driving it first.

Unfortunately I would not recommend buying an intrepid that will not start, not only for the fact they have major engine problems or water pump and timing chain problems. The car would have to start and start up quietly (no lifter or chain noise) before you should consider purchasing it. Just my opinion after dealing with a bunch of those in the used car market.

Change spark plugs fuel filter fuel pump engine can not start


Wow! You've really got your hands full! 1) Verify the fuel pump is installed correctly and has power. 2) Verify the fuel filter is installed correctly. 3) Verify the spark plug wires are correctly installed. The number one reason for a car not running after an owner changes the spark plug wires - the wires were not installed to the correct cylinder.

Subaru turns over but will not start and engine smokes.


I wont ever buy a car unless i know i can fix it. and depending on the price. if its not running i will never buy a car from someone i dont know for more than 100 bucks depending on condition of car. i dont care how much work has been done.

now on to the question.it can smoke for a number of reasons but the only way to check any real problems is if it runs. could be improper head job, could be turbo seals, but car would run with poor seals. check plugs for oil burning, but these are not very easy to check. subarus are not cheap to fix. so with that good luck.
im not a fan of these due to expensive parts cause its a subaru. unless there is something real special about this car i would walkaway

fuel pump more than likely, take it to a shop to be sure, or if you are handy check your fuel pressure with a fuel pressure gauge.

I bet if you let the car cool off after a few hours it will start up again. You could also try banging on the fuel tank with a block of wood. If that makes the car start you have a faulty fuel pump.

There are other causes it could be, but a fuel pump is most likely your culprit.

I could go into details and explain why fuel pumps fail this way... but I'm too lazy to type now..
