Fuel pump heats up and malfunctions??? HaHa that's a good one. Tell the dope that told you that, I said the fuel pump is only going to get as hot as the fuel it is sitting in....or at least, lets hope so, unless you like to see bombs go off!
The best advice I can give you is this:
1. Check to see if there are any fault codes in your computer. (On an '86 Subaru, the computer might not be very smart, but check it anyway.)
2. If there are no codes, run the engine untill it stalls, then pull one of the spark plugs and see if there is any spark when you try to start it.
3. If it has spark, then you should check to see if it is getting fuel.
You have to find out which system is failing (Spark or Fuel) before you can even guess what is causing the problem.
Could be spark plug wires need replacing. Go out at night and start car in dark with hood raised. Look for little flashes or sparks. If nothing then try misting a little moisture from a spray bottle and see it you can't replicate the problem. I am assuming the moisture is causing the wires to arc and once the engine heats up it dries things out enough thatit runs okay
You need to check the hieght sensor in the front springs. It may have been extended to far and stuck or broke. It determines the load and adjusts the pressure to each spring. Good luck and have a great day.
I have a 1984 Gl Wagon 4WD; the fuel pump is located on the passenger side, on the frame rail under the back door, just in front of the rear wheel. It and the fuel filter are accessed by dropping the mounting plate that also serves as a protective plate. Again, this is the 4WD non-turbo EA81 engine GL Wagon; could be different on the 2WD version.
This transmission has a 4 wheel drive unit on the back of the trans this has a known fault which this unit could have, take to your local trans specialist and he will be able to verify and qoute, You also could check the fuse for the 4 wheel drive. normally in the fuse box under the bonnet marked 4wd or awd, this also would cause your fault.
