While standing in front of the engine, look towards your back left engine area in the corner of the engine. You will have to take off the intake hoses/air box to see it. the sensor is sticking horizontal to the ground pointing towards the front of the engine. I used a little scope mirror to see it. It will have an automotive connector with a few wires running to it. The sensor should have a brown connector on it. If you need further assistance, type in google about the location and someone on there has taken really good pictures of it. I had to move some hoses and disconnect some wiring harnesses to get to it. Also, there is a relatively decent description in the Haynes manual for replacing it. Let me know how it goes! Should be about $30 at parts store.

Is a rear diff from a 1997 subaru legacy wagen with a 2.2l inter changeable with a 1997 subaru legacy outback with a 2.5l ?


the only way you can do this is if you can identify the gear ratios from both cars with the transmission codes found on the strut tower plate.
see this list to check for matches, read it carefully its a ton of info

Can you switch a rear diff from a 1997 subaru legacy wagen with a 2.2l inter changeable with a 1997 subaru legacy outback with a 2.5l ?


the biggest draw back that you will have to check first is the ratio of the diffs you want to change. If they are not the same but will fit then you will destroy the 3rd diff in the transmission from excessive use.

I'm trying to adjust the timing on the subaru 1997 outback legacy 2.5 engine and it seems to not be correct.


The ignition timing is not adjustable. It is computer controlled by the crank sensor, cam sensor and knock sensor. Would be easier to help you if I knew why you were trying to adjust it. Have a great day.
