Subaru Legacy QuestionsRefine by vehicle
my car did not overheat and this is the first time I have seen a puddle of green fluid which I know is anti freeze but I cant see a leak its not leaking now and I know its my car because it was in my garage any idea of what it could be or why its doing it
repair was done light is off but has not reset
it sounds like something is rubbing on tire when wheel is turned to right shortly after starting
I juat bought the car used an was not told about this problem could really use some help i have very limited income an can't afford to take it to the garage to be looked at hoping its something simple that
Do I have to remove the door panel to replace the door switch
Do cam seals need replacing at the same time?
it seems like it has trouble switching gears then it will go, it has a good shake to it as you slow down, and when it does have trouble it can back fire sometimes and spudders
Only happens when the car goes past 65 MPH.
so the car runs on the batt untill its dead.no batt light comes on so i dont know.had rebuilt ok for a while but still does it.how can this happen without batt light coming on?checked wires ok fuses ok battery good untill it killed it.anybody know whats going on here?
after a while it will ingage and shift ok until its shut off.and then it takes 10 seconds or so to ingage again but reverse slips all the time.no codes.
I had a tune up,with someone i have used before.plugs wires,etc.also transmission was flushed and added new fluid,then had the cv joints changed.when i picked it up it was idleing real low,and the engine sounds like a log truck.and they say there is nothing wrong,but i had to argue with them.that it was running fine when i brought it in.i also am aware that when a battery is unhook,the car has to rethink.so after a week it sometimes idles low about 500 rpms.when you stop.and still there is a faint miss,even after they said they tuned it up.we paid 900 dollars for all the repairs.and it is running crappy,and they there is nothing wrong, and being mechanically inclined i cant figure out what is wrong,can you help?
i want just a little more boost
I can feel the clunking also. It seems like wheel bearings
This is a AWD vehichle.
Checked battery and changed gas filter along with plugs starter workes fine and can hear fuel pump on was told the coolent temp switch runs the starting of the car but this morn it tried to start than could not hear fuel pump and starter would not move only heard clicking under left side of car but was still told the coolent temp runs the brain that runs the starter and fuel pump and thats what tells your car how much gas to start with
I have had two shops price it two different ways. And there is about $200.00 difference in the two.
left front master switch replaced
A van tore the front bumper completely off, should I replace it?
right cv so had that fixed but it didnt change--was told to balace & align tires-that helped slightly but then tire place said all 4 wheels were out of round & I should replace all rims & tires--doesnt seem likely they all went out of round at once. Id had same tires on for 9 months with no problems & havent hit a curb or anything..? Almost out of $$ so need a educated guess--Thx
I loose about a quart of oil every 3000 miles. Can I ignore the leak and keep topping up? The leak appears to be near the exhaust pipe.
the dealer just changed the oil about a month ago
When car is under 60 mph and AC is on? When AC is not on or car is over about 60 mph, the noise is not there.
how hard is it to rplace
I checked the fluid level and it seemed to be normal. So what happened and what is the solution?
Servicing air conditioning was not help. Am told that it is "working like it is supposed to." Not acceptable. Needs to get fixed befor HOT weather.
The mirror itself is ok, and the electronics work, it's the housing that needs replacement. I got one from the dealer, but with no instructions.
First time this has happened, drove it up hill in snow and slush and when I came to a stop and tried to put it into park it wouldn't go into park. Plus the key won't release, probably because of car being in gear. anything else I should check?
the abs pump is leaking fluid
have replace the fuel filter fuel pump fuel pump relay and battery sometimes it start and sometime it will crank but i have to hit the gas to start it
The car has been making a loud noise. Repair shop says it needs a new exhaust sytem and new catalytic converters. Cost equals $1300. The car has less than 60K miles.
I like to perform my own maintenance on my vehicles and since this is my first Subaru it would be good reference.
