It should fire the way that your used to with other cars. on top dead centre and with valves 1 and 3 ready to roll and your rotor button pointing to 1 in the cap just a suggestion could the previous person have damaged the crank sensor? also with the no. 1 plug out check what position the mark is on with the piston up

1993 Subaru impreza wagon cranking but will not start not getting fuel to the engine


Could be all sorts of things. If the timing belts have slipped, the engine will usually not start or run really rough. Could be the crank angle sensor (under the alternator, just above the main pulley).

If the belt has slipped, you can check by pulling the cam belt covers off. Usually its the LHS side belt that's jumped. The hydraulic tensioner sometimes works loose and detensions the belt. Rotate the engine till to top dead center on the pulley, and see if the cam pulleys are at the timing marks. If the belt has slipped, you WILL have bent valves.

first check the timing belt because it may be broke.Another solution could be a clogged catalytic converter.It really sounds like a timing belt.Remove inspection cover for the timing belt and have someone turn over the motor and see if your camshaft is turning.

How long should it take to replace a clutch on a 94 subaru loyale 4wd. thanks


Hello. Replacing the clutch in a 4WD is a pretty big job. Dealerships charge it as a ten hour job. It could take from 8-12. Joe

Engine cranks but will not turn over. Relay switch is not tripped. has like 5 gallons of gas in it. Thought it may be beacuse it was low on gas. Has super strong crank, just will not power up.


My friend "cranks" is the same thing as "turn over" ... does it crank or not? You say it has a strong crank ...

You might be flooded, more likely you have ignition troubles. Do you have spark? You test this by pulling a spark plug wire and putting another spark plug on the wire, with the plug grounded, observe to see if you have spark. If you have fuel, in the tank, there is that possibility you have a fuel pump fault. Naturally aspirated or fuel injection? If you have a carb, look down the throat to see if there is gas when you press on the gas petal.

I think you are going to have to have this repaired by your mechanic.
