Question about 1999 Subaru Legacy

2 Answers

I have been unable to find a repair manual to find sensor test values and locations.

Where can I find a repair manual for my 1999 Subaru outback? I need to find the location and test values of the knock sensor. Test values for the O2 sensor (the one before the Catylatic) also.

    In response to knock sensor...Checked continuity and there is none. Is it possible it could be bad anyway and no continuity. I also checked the O2 sensor and it read between .1 and .9 (increased as engine heated. Any other solutions and do you know if this is a problem with all Subaru's. Friend has same problem as well. Thank you much

The best is to get a tech manual from the dealer, but it could cost a lot, sometimes ebay has them for older cars when people get rid of them. Hayes is usually detailed enough to give you the test values for an O2 sensor and cost $20. Try a NAPA or PepBoys and look through a Hayes manual, if it does haven't it, you'll need a tech manual.

Haynes makes the best manual in my opinion, Part #89100. But to answer your questions,The knock sensor you just check for continuity between terminal and ground on block. There should be none. If there is it is bad. On the First O2 sensor,should produce a steady reading of .01 to .02 volts. after warming up about 2 minutes, it should fluctuate between .1 and .9 volts, meaning it has reached closed loop status. I hope this helps a little and have a good day.

What is the location of the FUEL AIR RATIO SENSOR on a Subaru Outback, 2001,. 2.2 L ?


since that is a Boxer engine it will have one O2 sensor at the base of each exhaust manifold. and since it is newer than a 1996 it will have one or two more O2 sensors behind each catalytic converter so you will have three or four ( O2 sensors) fuel air ratio sensors you need to check if you are having a problem. the two at each exhaust manifold are the upstream and the ones at the catalytic converters are the downstream. hopefully that engine only has one catalytic converter going into one exhaust pipe. the exaust manifolds are under the engines cylinder heads (under the engine).

How hard is it to replace knock sensor on 2000 outback


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Metric combination wrench set
  • 3/8-inch drive ratchet wrench
  • 12 mm socket
  • Knock sensor
  1. Open the hood, and disconnect the battery negative cable with a wrench.
  2. Locate the black rubber air intake tube that runs from the air cleaner box to the throttle body on top of the engine.
  3. Loosen the clamp on the air intake tube at the throttle body with a wrench. Grasp the tube and pull it off the throttle body inlet, and move it out of the way.
  4. Locate the knock sensor. It's bolted to the engine near the throttle body. Remove the hold-down bolt attaching the knock sensor to the engine block, using a 3/8-inch drive ratchet wrench with a 12 mm socket attached.
  5. Follow the electrical lead of the knock sensor to its connector, and simultaneously lift the plastic tab with your hand while gently pulling apart the plug.
  6. Remove the knock sensor from the engine bay. Compare the old sensor to your new part to ensure they are identical.
  7. Reattach the knock sensor to the engine block by threading in the original holding bolt by hand. Snug the bolt with the ratchet wrench and 12 mm socket. Do not over-tighten the bolt.
  8. Plug the new knock sensor into the original electrical plug.
  9. Gently push the throttle body air intake tube onto the throttle body. Tighten the hose clamp with a wrench.
  10. Reconnect the battery's negative terminal with a wrench. Close the hood.
  11. Start your Subaru's engine. Take the car on a test-drive and verify that the spark knock has disappeared.

I failed the emisson's test. I have a 97 Nissan


P0136 indicates a bad O2 sensor. This reports poor emission performance back to the car's PCM (computer)
P0325 indicates a bad "Knock" sensor which would adversely effect drivability as far as performance is concerned. Only way to fix these 2 problems is replacement of the 2 components.

How much should I ask for a 1999 Subaru Legacy Outback - as is - timing belt broke. Body is good. Transmission one year old.


The private party retail book value based on 120000mi (just a guess) ranges anywhere from
$4700 (fair condition) to $5300 (good condition). Assuming it would cost $500 to replace the timing belt, you should probably deduct at least $1000 from the total since anyone buying the car would be buying it blind since they couldn't test drive it. If the motor is fine, it would be worth more to repair it than to get what you can as is.

Where is the knock sensor located on a 2.5 Subaru outback 1998?


directly below the throttle body on the drivers side of the engine block. Has a white connector attached to a single black wire lead. I had to remove the black plastic piece that connects to the throttle body and the air filter housing, in order to see/get at it. Easy fix once you find it. Haynes manual shows it in a different location, so don't confuse yourself looking at the diagram.
