Assuming the car has the 1.8 engine, the oil pump is on the front of the motor, behind the timing belt covers. The belts have to come off to change the oil pump. If you are a novice, this is a difficult task. If you usually fix your own stuff, then it is not so bad. Just be sure to replace both belts while you are at it, and be sure to get them set right. If it is the 1.8, one belt drives one cam, and the other drives the other cam, the oil pump, the distributor, and maybe also the water pump....It's been 10 years since I had mine. Good luck

first check the timing belt because it may be broke.Another solution could be a clogged catalytic converter.It really sounds like a timing belt.Remove inspection cover for the timing belt and have someone turn over the motor and see if your camshaft is turning.

Where is the horn located on a 1987 subaru gl10 4wd? Horn gradually weakened and then stopped working altogather.


Well, if this is like my 93 Subaru Loyale, (2wd) there are actually two horns. Each are located just under the headlights. Absolute access to these (if the same) will require the front bumper being removed, or by pulling out the headlights.Considering the headlights need to be aligned to a specific direction, and are hard to re-position, I suggest removing the bumper instead. Your choice.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Where is the fuel pump located on a 1984 subaru Gl ?


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.
