    Sounds like you have a corroded ground strap or wire somewhere.

I think the problem lies in the speed senor mounted on the gearbox.
when it rains,water gets in the connection and shortens the sensor thus causing the problem with the speedo and when the car's stationary the sensor dries due to the heat and runs again.
please check the speed sensor/connections and keep them dry and without viberations.
hope this solves your problem.

i would check the idle air control solenoid first. simply unplug it then remove the unit and inspect the air passage for any blockage and carbon buildup. Clean it if its dirty then test it out. If the IAC is good then you should look at the throttle position sensor.

I have subaru b4 legacy 1999 with twin turbo from Japan and I would like to increase the torque and speed. Where do I start.


hi i would invest in an electronic boost controller, they remove the dead spot in the revs before the big turbo winds in, they are worth a few hundred dollars but are well worth the money. You also have the option of turning up the boost safely a few psi with these but you will love the difference without the dead spot it will seem like a new car to drive. If you do that and want more still i would get a turbo upgrade, ecu upgrade, fuel pump upgrade etc do all that you can before going with the expensive motor rebuild

My 97 Legacy started to studder when stepping on the gas from a dead stop. It does not seem to studder at higher speeds. Do you thing the Fuel filter may need to be changed?

My 1992 Subaru Legacy Wagon is missing, I have changged the plugs and wires. It runs fine on the highway but has a problem in town where there are plenty of starts and stops. What else could be the...


You could try checking the EGR valve to see if it is dirty. It may be running badly at high speed also as it's harder to hear misses at high rpms. You should be able to tell by your acceleration and gas mileage also. Timing chain problems sometimes show up like this. Sorry I can't give you anything definitive but hopefully this will help a little. Good luck!
