1 you need to get the code. 2 sounds like the catalitic converter is bad. If the code was for the exhaust sensor, the catalitic converter will pop this code.

1992 Subaru legacy wagon will not shift up from first gear. it is an AT.


run the fault but all you describe is operated from the VSS sensor ( vehicle speed sensor)
it tells the cruise control the vehicle speed , tells the TCM the vehicle speed so that ratios can be changed, activates the speedo,and will report with a check engine light to report a transmission problem
run the fault codes first

Idles rough lack of power when driving and vibrates, i changed fuel filter, spark plugs and wires, mass air flow sensor, oxygen sensor ,and tps sensor and had no luck. any suggestions?


I imagine that the check engine light is on and if so what are the trouble codes? Sounds like a miss in at least one cylinder. If you provide me with the 8'th character in the vin # and codes if any, I'll try to be of more help.

Idles okay, runs rough when gas applied


Either a bad MAP sensor, or TPS. What is the code for the check engine light? This will most likely tell you what it is.

Engine light is blinking and it runs very rough/low power in gear.


Check the coil pack. Same symptoms on mine. It went at 74,000.
You can get the resistance specs from a shop manual. I have been told the plastic engine cover traps heat and makes short life of the coil pack. I removed the top engin cover, cosmetic only after replacing mine. You will probably need spark plugs also they are probably fowled by now. If you have not changed spark plug wires in awhile in would not hurt.

91 LEGACY STARTED RUNNING ROUGH


The cylinders are numbered as on the spark pack you changed. You might have done better putting the seafoam in the tank as an injector cleaner. Not sure why you changed so many parts, you seem to know how to get the codes from test connector lead hookup and the blink pattern. You might also want to check the fuel rail pressure and the crank and cam angle sensors. Before replacing the injector, swap the #4 injector with the adjacent one and see it the code moves with the injector or stays put. If the code stays on #4, then check the injector wiring, if it moves clean or replace the injector.
