Question about 1993 Subaru Loyale

1 Answer

My 1993 subaru loyale just won't start sometimes. usually happens when parked on flat surface. automatic gears won't shift. wheel seems to lock then unlock. when i push the gear release...shift lever will move, but still won't start even in neutral. when i'm about ready to call a tow truck, then all of a sudden it starts on its own. been told it may be the linkage, then told maybe the neutral safety switch...but when its looked at it always starts then....been told it might have to completely leave me stranded before someone will know what this is.....help

Age of vehicle would suggest excess play in the selector shaft. Adjust to remove "slop"
Wear in the Safety override Ignition start solenoid for Park/Neutral.
Chafed wiring to the Start circuit from the above.
Faulty Brake light switch.
Best of luck.

What should we do?


Hi there,
There is a (silly) safety lock on the ignition to stop it starting in gear, or the key being removed if not in park, and a sensible safety lock on the gear shift to stop kids letting it roll down a hill. Try putting your foot firmly on the brake, press the park release button beside the gear shift, while pulling the shifter out of park and back into park.
Getting the key out: Sometimes the steering wheel is placing pressure on the steering lock and key release mechanism, so try turning the steering wheel in any direction it can go while trying to release the key. It should come only out when you are in park.

1993 Subaru loyale Engine won't start distributor


if rotor (this is the one that turns and not the distributor), then its either your starter is broken or you have a drained battery.

also, for worst cases, your timing belt/chain is broken

KEY WON'T TURN ON THE IGNITION


Hi Aldene, Your vehicle seems too young to have a problem with a worn key so I suggest that the problem was related to the position of the steering wheel and the tongue of the locking mechanism. Sometimes when the lock engages it is under the load of the weight of the front wheels, if they are not in the straight ahead position. A small movement of the steering wheel is usually enough to release the steering lock. Regards John

1993 subaru loyale is making a horrible knocking/clunking noise


Hi the only other thing it could really be is the wheel bearing itself, usually in subarus they grind or clunk with wheel movement so if you go faster so does the noise, a garage would be able to tell you strait away as you cant really pull them apart without the right gear. Also check the strut, very unlikely but if a spring is collapesd it wll make a similar noise but wont speed up etc, its also worth noting that a cv can make the noises you describe but it would have to be completly destroyed and quite noticable hope this helps

What is the button in front of the shifter on the center console of a 1993 subaru loyale with an automatic?


Likely that button changes when converter locks up...one position is "economy" the other is a delay for power.

Problems with the transmisson


Whit the engine ruining check your transmission fluid level
is possible than you have a transmission fluid leak and don't have enough fluid to work properly. NOTE: Do not ever fill it because that can case your transmission to wear out faster.
And make sure the car is on a level place and the engine is running while you check the level.
