Why does my 98 subaru legacy sputter and die?

Clean your MAF sensor and throttle body. If it's dirty it will send wrong voltage to ECU, running either too lean or too rich, most likely too rich and flooded the fuel injectors.

Starts fine then stalls after a couple seconds.

its could be the fuel pump, if its going bad then it could be causing stall and a gas hose could be bad to and is only allowing a little gas to motor causing it to stall also

My 1993 legacy ran out of gas, and now wont start. I put 5 gal in it. Fuel pump works, filter is clean! Im stuck. HELP

there may be air in the system, try turning the key on to the ignition and push in the center pin to the schnader valve on the fuel line at the top of the engine (have a rag loosely placed over the line to catch fuel when it comes out (it will)-it should be a c=decent stream, you should then be able to start it. Turn the key to crank, do not press the gas petal.

It ran out of gas and now wont start. I put gas directly into throttle body, and it starts/runs, but wont remain started when gas runs out.

Sounds like fuel pump. Your fuel pump relies on fuel to act as coolant. Running it low often makes pump run hot and shortens it's life. Sounds like running out of fuel did just that. Way to test, pull fuel line off in engine compartment and have someone turn key to "ON" (NOT START!!!) position, you should fuel spraying out of line) If not, fuel pump is bad.

I would try replacing the fuel filter. I had a 1992 Subaru Loyale with a similar problem. I thought it was the pump, but I replaced the filter first and it ran fine. I believe the fuel filter is in the engine compartment, on the driver's side, near the strut tower.

How do you change the fuel filter on a 2005 Subaru Legacy GT, and how often should this be changed.

you'll need to jack up your car and pull your fuse for the fuel pump.. run the car until it stalls out from not getting any fuel... then disconnect the clamp that connects from the filter to the gas tank and let any residual gas drain into a container... remove the clamp on the other side of the filter and then reverse the order.... once it's back in, put the fuse back in and turn the key until all your dash lights turn on (On Position) and leave for about 20 seconds... The pump will prime and then you can start the car, may take a few tries before it will start.... It should be changed about every 5 years, but that's only a recommendation, some filters last less, some last longer

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
