Question about 1986 Subaru Gl 2 Door
I have a 86 wagon gl. While driving the car died and would not restart. I thought it was a fuel problem, but it would not start sparying starting fluid in the carb. I then check the spark and it did not spark. Would this be a distributor problem, a coil or something completly different.
I have the same problem with my 86 GL 4WD. One day it started to turn, and then lost all power. I couldn't even turn on the lights. I have played with the ignition switch wires, and gotten it to fire. I think there may be a short somewhere in the switch or the wires to the harness, but I have not isolated it yet. You might check your ignition switch and wiring...

Check all of your fuses, sometimes a short will trip a fuse that controls the spark to the engine, and it will shut off an not start all of the sudden. Im not sure what one, but check them all and replace them if they are blown. Other than that it could be the ignition coil or a bad distributor?
