Knock sensor has gone bad most likely. I had the same problem with the same car and replaced the knock sensor. Fixed the problem. Very common with Subarus. It's an inexpensive part but it requires patience and small surgeon's hands to get to it and replace it. Lots of how-to articles on line.

get the car scanned to find the code. many autoparts stores will scan the car for you or you can buy the bluetooth tool that connects to a phone or tablet that has bluetooth. i suspect your spark plugs might be the issue.

I have a 1997 Subaru Legacy Outback AWD. The


when you replaced the plugs , was one of them (cylinder 1 ) dirty and fouled ?
I'm thinking that bad rings in cylinder would give you low compression , and eventualy cause the missfire by fouling up the plug.
There is an inexpensive product that will help with the compression by filling up scratches in the cylinder walls. It is called Restore , and it is one of the only products of its type that I have used , and feel actually works.
Unfortunately , if your rings are broken , or badly worn , nothing in a bottle will fix them.

If your car had a distributor cap and rotor , I would change them too.

Speedometer died on 98 Outback Legacy


if you know what you are looking for, it is the speedometer cable. if you have a mechanical odometer, then it is just the cable that is connected in your instrument panel and connected to your transmission.

if you can replace that cable then that would solve your problem.

if you have an electronic odometer , then you have to find your sending unit which is also located in your transmission. but it would be more complicated to test if it is defective.

tnx 4 using fixya,
