20 Most Recent 2008 Subaru Legacy Questions & Answers

My first suspicion is ground cable to battery is loose, corroded or contacting somewhere it shouldn't. Subarus seem to eat ground cables somehow in my experience. Might also be a computer problem but less likely.

If you had a starter relay or park neutral safety switch problem the engine would not spin . If when you turn the key to the start position an the engine spins but does not start an run , this is a cranks no start , but if you turn the key to the start position an the engine does not spin you have a no crank no start condition . All the parts you replaced an didn't fix the problem , you probably should take it to a qualified repair shop . It sounds like you know nothing of auto repair .

Hi Dianne, sorry, but I have to ask: after the oil change, are you sure the oil was re-filled? Maybe some got spilled on the exhaust manifold and needs to burn off (any smoke?) Is there coolant visible in the overflow tank? If the coolant is low, perhaps there is a leak in a hose to and from the radiator. "Hot smell" can also be rubber burning, i.e. drive belts, clutch pressure plate. Hard for me to tell w/o being there-hope this helps!

if you have this problem only when listening to the gangam style I would suggest listening to more appropriate music. However if the problem do continue even with white folks rhythms I think the best solution would be to completely remove the plastic parts, sandblast the interior metal chassis , vacuum the whole thing and then glue the plastics back using epoxy glue

If you have proof - receipt - of bringing this up before the warranty expired it may be covered.

What were you told when you reported to Subaru?

Also, go search on the SubaruOutback.org site as they may have more info.

Your check engine light is on because the computer has detected a problem. You need to take it to Autozone or Advanced to get it scanned. It is free and they can let you know what the computer picked up. This way, you know what to look at. If you have any questions, let me know. I am here to help as much as I can.
