Question about 1987 Subaru Gl 4WD

1 Answer

1987 Subaru GL 1.8 liter automatic, 2WD. Fuel-injected. Quit running at 65MPH on freeway, coasted into parking lot. Parked. Cannot start. Noticed crank case was accidently overfilled on dip stick approx 1quart? Replaced fuel pump and oil pressure sending unit switch with new parts.. Now what? Still won't start. Tried to jump start. Didn't make a difference.

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.

1987 subaru carburator problems


You need to hone the accelerator pump well and adjust the throw of the pump rod as much as possible to get more fuel. Of course that is just a guess based on 100's of rebuilds i have done over the years. I have also found that Japanese carbs seldom turn out when rebuilt.

How many miles on your subie? Is it fuel injected? I think Subes still had a few carbureted models even up to about 1988.
Check the timing, and if it's injected have the fuel pressure checked for proper pressure.
After it starts, does it run good? Might want to checlk your vacuum hoses for any leaks.
Good luck.

I have no power to the fuel pump , n when i remove the fuelpump relay n use a jumper wire i still have no power at the fuel pump on a 1988 subaru gl wagon 1.8 liter fuel injected


I would suspect that the Fuse has blown, or the wire has been cut? to that supply wire to the pump, try running a lead directly back to the Positive of the battery and see if that works OK? If so locate and replace the fuse, and or fix the broken wire.

I am looking into buying a 1987 subaru GL. What kind of gas mileage do they get?


If it is 4x4, around 30-33, a little more for 2wd. Also a manual trans. will get at least 3-4 mpg better. Keep it in tune and a clean fuel filter for best results.

Ouit running while driving 65mph on freeway


Does engine still crank? If so you have to check for Fuel, spark, compression. when your engine quit ..odds are good you lost one of these. check for fuel since modern electric fuel pumps stop working without any warning.You should be able to hear the pump momentarily when you first turn the key to "ON" If good check for spark, modern "coil pack" spark systems have a few weak links. if engine cranks and you have spark and you don't know how to check for fuel spray some starting fluid in your air inlet and see if it will start momentarily

Does it have oil in it now? If you ran it out of oil you fuel-washed the cylinder walls and may have lost compression. You'd have to check for spark and fuel and maybe add a little oil into the spark plug holes to regain compreession if the rings are worn.
