My car was sputtering for a brief moment yesterday but corrected itself I figured it was just time for a tune up but today while driving and it died. There wasn't any loud noises or knocking so I don't think it was a piston. I had a buddy tow it to my house and imeadiatly checked the fuel lines to see if the gas was running through and it was fine. I pulled the spark plug wires out and found oil in the spark plug wells. I figured I just needed to replace the valve cover gaskets I cleaned out the oil and found that it still won't start. The outback cranks but just won't start. Any ideas on what it could be?
A few days later motor attempted to turn over but just backfires and won't start
Are there any other parts that have to be removed?
now the clock went out, will not work with battery reconnect- now door ajar light is always on and security light flashes off and on- is it a problem with the car's computer or something else?
At 45mph+ when I let off the gas and coast there will be a rattling coming from the front right side. It shakes the steering wheel but doesn't cause any impairment while driving. When the shaking/rattling is happening if I hit the brakes it stops but when I let off it rattles/shakes again at 45mph+ while coasting. Sometimes after the car has sat whether it be cold or hot, when I put it in first or reverse there will be a loud clunk from the front right side when I start to move. No shaking just a loud thunk and it happens over bumps but while it's all happening if I hit the brakes it goes away. I just rebuilt the motor for this car but I'm lost on this.
I own a subaru impreza AWD automatic 1.6 L engine 2003.

on my 3 liter h6, my p/s pump has a pressure switch sensor that keeps blowing out and spraying fluid. i took it out and it sems like the star washer and grommet that keeps the brass male business in the pump have no retention left in them. the p/s pump works well enough to not replace, i just need the sensor. anyone else seen this issue and how did you solve it?
Also have checked wires,all in good condition. Relays replaced. Headlights and brake lights on same switch still operating correctly.
By getting the temp stat a little up happens whenever the engines cooled
has a new fuel filter and has bin running fine
Just had clutch replaced (everything incl flywheel, all OEM) after 123k miles. Clutch now engages with pedal barely an inch off the floor - awkward at best, leads to jerky starts/stalls. I was told it's hydraulic & not adjustable, but was suggested by another there's a cylinder to bleed to raise the pedal. (I've also seen the clutch described as 'cable' in some forums, the year - 99 - being the crucial point).
