Subaru Legacy QuestionsRefine by vehicle
The dash lights come on, the key turns in the ignition, but the engine doesn't even attempt to turn over. There will be a buzzing sound, or sometimes a quiet clicking, but nothing else. After many tries, or just walking away and trying later, the car will simply start as it should. I've replaced the battery several times, but don't think that's the issue. Shops say they can't replicate the problem, so can't solve it. I think it's electrical. I've been told it is not my starter or alternator. PLEASE help. I've been stranded several times.
while driving my car the elect. system completely shut off no door locks,lights or hazard lights ignition switch wouldn't unlock to remove the key and trans. selector wouldn't shit into neutral to push out of traffic then 5-10 mins. later the key turned elect.returned and the car started and worked fine . the pos. bat. terminal was completely covered in corrosion so I replaced the term. also during the day the outside temp. was over 100 degrees.
what would cause this all to happen
going down the road on a 100 plus degree evening my car shut off on its own nothing elect. would work and the ignition would only let me turn the key to ON ,START ,and LOCK but would not release the key to pull it out of the ign.
after about 5 or 10 min I heard a light clicking noise behind the radio turned the key to remove it and it came out after that i started the car . could the 100 + degree heat of the day or a completely corrosion covered pos. term. (whitch I had to replace ) have caused the temp. power failure or is it the IGN. switch?

My car rattles in the undercarriage as I excel and the I get to 35 it quiets down.
It started yesterday after I when to car wash and steadily gotten worse. Last week my check engine went on however I was thinking that had to do with the need for oil.
So whenever I turn a sharp corner like pulling in and out of a parking spot the wheels kind of "jump" I dont know how to describe it exactly. Does anyone know what could cause this? It doesnt happen if its a regular corner just sharp ones.

Radio dies when I hit a bump. Will sometimes comes on after I shut it off and turn it back on or switch from AM to FM. Grounded the attena to the frame and that helped a little while.

I replaced horns and have current to them. Purchased new relay and need to know it's location in wiring circuit to replace it.
Can the use of regular cheap gas instead of super cause car to die out quickly?
...after having new tires put on--suddenly there are major symptoms.Terrible squeaking noise when braking--squeaking with a "crunch" sound--and now similar sound when turning corners. It does this all the time now since new tires. Estimate is $900 for brakes alone. But are there times that cars do this after new tires when they don't need them? Last trip to mechanic for something else--was told "sometime you'll need new brakes..." Did the new tires create the "sometime"? Is this a stupid question?!
remove them or not?
the engine dies, so I have to power off for a second or two then hit the gas, then its all good. Any suggestions as to why the power drops in that range would greatly be appreciated, cheers Donnie.
pedal goes to the floor sometimes and comes back later
