Subaru QuestionsRefine by vehicle
I was told this was a simple thing to do through the Home and Settings buttons but it doesn't work. One time for some reason, the album cover displayed but only one time.
my mechanic tells me that I might need a new transmission. What would it cost? The gear shift periodically will allow the car to go backwards but will not engage in any of the forward gears until it has warmed up for 5-15 minutes.
Front differential has overheated and gone bad, the dipstick skock out and almost all the gear oil was lost. This is wifes car. It took nearly 1.5 quarts to fill, but the damage is already done. Whines and as soon as you leave off the gas car slows like the brakes are being applied. Other than that car has ran great for last 8 years. I would do the work myself however I have been rebuilt too. My cervical neck had to have total reconstruction so working on car days are over except for easy jobs like oil changes, brake jobs,tranny flush, tune ups. Thanks for any help. Joe
This just happened 2 days ago 1/11/2017. Going to drain gear box /differential and see how much metal shavings are attach to magnetic 21 mm plug today.
It is louder on startup until engine revs down, then is somewhat lower in pitch. It can be heard while driving, does not change with ac on / off, or heat. I do not see anything when I look at belts and have had both replaced about 2 months ago.
I was told the engine has to be replaced, it looks like it spun a rod bearing

1.5 boxer motor, 1995 Subaru Impreza. Yesterday was the first time this happened, tried to jumpstart her and got nothing, had to be towed home, 24 hours on and still no electrics or power at all!! Any ideas? :(
While driving,everything fine then suddenly and without prior problems, lost power. Pulled over checked under the hood. No smoking, no leaking of anything and serpentine belt was fine. Replaced radiator two months ago. Had one head gasket seal replaced year and a half ago. It could be a number of things since we haven"t done a whole lot of major maintenance on the vehicle.Original tranny fluid too. It has regular oil changes and is in great condition considering her age.
seems like a loose connection somewhere but cant find anything loose. An altinator or mabe a fuse going out.
When I turn the heat up full in my car, the thermostat goes to hot, but when I turn the heat down lower the thermostat goes back to normal temp, whats causing that?
a little background; cruise acted up a couple months ago, cured on its own. Check engine light came on a couple weeks ago. Replaced the cat to clear that up. Was told the cruise stops working when the check engine light comes on and functions when that issue is cleared up. Well, it has not started working yet, and it has been quite long enough to reset if that were the cause. Common causes? Stalk switch on the column? Fuse is OK btw. Any insight?
Cruise has stopped working! Check engine light is also on, but I have a new Cat that should take care of that when I put it on.
The two are not related are they?
It came on same time the car overheated. Car towed an new radiator install. Light was off when I picked up car, 10 miles and lights came back on. Not sure why happend at the same time bu a separate problem fixed now? Heard it may be a sensor or catalytic converter.
The Rpm surges but the car doesn't go or will only go slowly 20-30 mph.
I've replaced the starter, alternator, radiator, fuel pump and filter and still only starts once maybe twice. I can't turn it off unless I'm home because it won't start again.

i took off the alternator and took it to autozone to have it tested. it failed so i figured i had a bad alternator. Replaced it same day and now it sounds worse. it doesn't sound like it gets spark or proper ignition. no check engine lights on. also noticed a oil leak coming from the oil pressure switch underneath the alternator.
I replaced my batter and had a tune up about a week ago, I use to have problems starting it when the air was on, I'd turn the air off and it would start right up, now it won't start at all the light are bright my connection is good but nothing
