Replaced broken water pump, replaced thermostat, and the temperature gauge consistently sits just below red once it's warmed up. It never seems to go into the red if I'm idling or taking short trips, but...


hi the temp gauge should sit in the lower quarter of the gauge, it has to be a faulty water temp sensor as anything else would cause it to over heat badly

1987 SUBARU GL WAGON 4WD WILL NOT IDLE RUNS FINE OTHERWISE


Either idle control valve/sensor, or a vacuum leak. Check all intake bolts for tightness, wiggle all hoses around with the engine running, and listen for a hissing. Try dumping some soapy water on the intake where it joins to the block, and see if it bubbles profusely. If it does, you may have an intake leak at the gasket.

1986 subaru gl wagon non turbo stays idiling at 2500


Hate to tell you this but sounds like the problem is a vacuum leak. This will make the engine rev. Check all the vacuum lines before making any adjustment. Have to dig out some of my old books to find factory settings for that carb. Good luck and I will try to find in case you need them to restore carb settings.
