check your timing belt positioning also inspect the top end with cover of possibly try an oil flush

There is a drain plug on the transmission pan for draining, I would check the transmission mounts, they may be broken, a good way to do this is stick a crowbar between the transmission and cross frame and pull down raising the rear of the transmission, if they are broken you will see them separate.

Interesting problem. The gear shift is run by levers and rods, not cables. I suspect that there are problems with
a) the rear gearbox mount (e.g. broken); or.and
b) engine mounts (broken or loose)

that allows the engine/trans to move fwd/back, and this is affecting the gear shift linkage.

You should also check the clutch pedal freeplay.

I doubt there is ANY problem with the standard transmission.

indicates several problems
first is that the scan tool has not got the right protocols for reading the Subaru ECM as there are fuel mixture faults recorded
next check the vacuum hose to the turbo vane actuators and that the vanes are free to move
next check for loose interchanger hoses and holes in the intercooler

change the coolant temperature sensor. its located on the coolant pipe on the left side of the engine under the intake manifold. If memory serves me correct its a 19mm deep socket to remove it

code p 0420 refers to cat converter system bank 1 --efficiency below threshold ===causes ---cat converter faulty---wiring --- heated oxygen sensor (HO2S)
I would be inclined to check the cat converter as the report is generated by the oxygen sensor to the ECM in that the desired results from a correct mixture are not with parameters
code p 0171 refers to system too lean bank 1===causes--intake /exhaust manifold leak---air system---fuel pressure / pump---MAF/VAF sensors---injectors--HO2S
the connection here could be a cracked flex section of the exhaust pipe before the cat converter
it would give both codes
bothe codes refer to the same bank
forget the fuel cleaner idea as a fix as it is not relevant to the codes

It could be a lot of things, MAP, MAF, Vacuum, Fuel Pump, FPR, Any number of other sensors. I suggest you pull your codes and see what comes up, then take it from there.

there should be no pressure in a system when the engine is cold
the cap is designed to allow extra pressure to blow off into the over flow reservoir and as the system cols down there is a vacuum created in the cooling system which opens a valve in the radiator cap and draws coolant back from the reservoir
I suggest that yo have a radiator shop test the cap for operation and get a new cap

without a service manual, the endless places it could be, on the firewall, under neath the dash, on the fender wheels, on the fuel injections ports, on the side of motor, in the rear of car near the fuel tank, where every the manufacture want to save money or time.

Some tail lights the fuse is located under the lamp of the lamp holder, hope that helps?

Fuse schematic should be printed on the inside of the cover...

2000 Subaru... | Answered on Feb 20, 2015

You do know that on Subaru's there is a switch on the steering collum that runs the running lights? If that's off the mark, then check your fuses. The one you will be looking for is marked "tail" in the fuse box.

They had a tendency to have fuel lines go bad. There are 2 or 3 small lines, all the same if I remember, one to the fuel rail in particular that would go bad and leak. That could explain the small (especially when you turn on the AC) but not sure what you mean by saying it sounds like it is loadig up with fuel.
