Subaru QuestionsRefine by vehicle
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.

A couple years ago my button to release the gas cap opening stopped working and I have had to use my car keys to open this. There have been times when it does pop open but this is very rare. Why would this be happening?
My tire light comes on now and again. The first time this happened it was obvious that one of my tires was low on air. But lately this tire late has been coming on and all 4 tires have the perfect amount of air pressure in them. Why is this?
Sometimes when I make a sharp turn my car makes this loud clunking sound. This also can happens at times when I brake. It doesn't happen all the time. Doesn't seem to make a difference what the weather is either.
I got my oil changed and they said my bootcap is torn. Is that an expensive fix?
Not sure where to plug in the code reader.
I know there isn't a hole in the tire but it feels like that side of my car is going over a bump all the time.
I don't drive often and I worry that my tires will get flat spots or go bad because of this.
I've had 2 break in less than 2 years. I don't drive much so this seems excessive for the mileage I'm putting on the belt.
When this happens the brake lights don't work.
Turning wheels tight and noisy
