Question about 1995 Subaru Legacy

Hot start problem w/Subaru

My 95 Subaru Legacy is difficult to start after it's been driven to warmup. It cranks fine but won't fire unless I hold the gas to the floor and crank it quite awhile, then it'll start, run rough and put out smoke for awhile, then gradually rev up and run ok. It starts fine when cold. It acts like flooding. I'm not familiar with EFI systems but am starting it like a carbureted engine that's flooding. I replaced the plugs but no difference. Help?

Thanks.

    Thanks! I've been getting an intermittent "check engine" light that produces a code corresponding to that sensor. I wouldnt've have guessed that was the cause, but I'll replace it, if I can figure out how to get at it without dismantling more than I'd hoped to. It seems to be buried under the intake manifold and other obstacles.

I just went through this same issue and it turned out to be the engine cooling sensor, a $50 part.

Sounds like a bad ignition system, if its firing poorly through your distributor once it warms up its not firing hot enough.

Replaced coolant temp sensor, would not fire before replacement. sat overnight an won,t fire off cranks fine just no start has had new timing belt, new starter, new batt., new coils an wires, new plugs


to many things have been done=wasting money.test the spark by remouving the plug wire put a1/4" bolt in the end of the wire hold it with an insulated pliers near the engine metal and have someone turn the keyas though starting.if you have a good stoung cracking spark ok.irf not the computer may not be activaitng the coils.+cam crank sensor no good. the cam sensor has been a big problem.probably find further info at the library.or have it towed to a sop.there are a lot of more complicated issues involved with a no start that need to be tested before throwing more parts at it.

Could be as simple as a new rotor and distributer cap. As the rotor and contacts inside the cap wear, it will take more and more revolutions to get it to catch.

I have the same car - same problem. Too hot or too cold and then just another once and while for good measure :(
I've had the battery checked and is good. Is it likely to be the starter?
