Question about 1994 Subaru Loyale
Hi I cleaned or thought I was cleaning my throttle body I didn't know that regular carb cleaner was a no no. Now it sounds like it has vacuum leak.
Inside the throttle body, a an auto parts clerk said the gumout cleaner ate away at the seals inside and that it need a new one is there anway to fix this cheaply?
Can I recondition the seals somehow?
Can I rebluid it?
What part or parts do I need to replace can send me a photo of the part I need to replace and a picture of its location or pic of the throttle body if this is what needs to be fixed?
SOURCE: leaking crank seal.
cam and crank seals should be replaced with the second timing belt change along with idler pulleys and water pump as the extra labour and cost is minimal compared to doing the job twice, but that comes down to the professionalism of the person working on the vehicle, you should atleast be educated in the fact so you can make a decision at the time of belt replacement

I highly recommend that you purchase a Haynes service manual for your Outback; we don't have any vehicle without one.
The number for your car is: 89101
I checked and found the liftgate described in sufficient detail to troubleshoot your problem.
The Haynes manuals cost between $15-$30 US and you can often find the best price on eBay but if you check with any of the chain auto parts stores, you can probably find one before they close today.
I also suggest you buy a cheap digital multimeter for electrical testing. If in the US, Radio Shack has some under $20 US or if near a Harbor Freight tool store, they are under $10. Each of our vehicles has one in the glove box.
I checked the schematic (circuit diagram) for the liftgate actuator and there is no separate fuse for it, it is on the same circuit with the other door locks. There are however, two plugs in the line to the common wires so either of these could be either disconnected or corroded preventing current flow. I have noticed a random problem with the lock/latch mechanism on ours; if the hatch is closed well enough to satisfy the warning circuit but not completely engaged, one can tug on the handle repeatedly without effect but pushing it forward will complete the latching sequence and then it opens easily; it clicks when happy.

the snsr is located on the right side of trans and can be viewed from the passenger side of vehicle looking down at trans from under the hood.

check you dont have a split in the corrugated pipe from the maf to the swirl chamber (the big black plastic tank attached to the inlet manifold) or a leak into the intake somewhere, doesnt have to be a small vac tube.
Also you may have a sticking TB butterfly as my learned friend suggested.

first remove the bulb of the headlights then you can use a rag and a long stick, a screwdriver will do. put the rag infront of the screwdriver then wipe all the moist carefully. you can try leaving it to dry up too just leaving the bulb socket open, it will just take time

Testimonial: "Wiping the headlight throug the bulb whole does clear moist, but there are other areas which cannot be reached in this way. Removing the lens is what "
