Just bought this car and the speedometer cable says I'm going 110 when I'm going 40. It bounces all over the place.

I have a '94 Impreza Sportswagon which I purchased off a good friend. The car has done 350,000+ km but has a reconditioned engine 60,000 ago. I recently took the car on a long trip and the radiator cooked, so have replaced that as well as spark plugs as it was turning off when in low revs and generally driving strangely. The final issue is that it seems to seize or misfire when driving, particularly around 2-3RPM, or when about 90kmph in 5th gear or 50kmph in 3rd. I will be accelerating consistently and then suddenly feel as if I braked, like the car is misfiring or seizing up. Happens momentarily and then accelerates as intended. Have taken it to the shop several times and they don't know... Any ideas?

Lights acts like its gonna turn of all the time

pretty much when I'm driving I hear a dingling sound coming from what seems to be between engine and tranny. It started bout a week ago. Is this a transmission problem? If so what do I need to have fixed or replaced? Can you help me figure what it could be.

While stopped, the people I speak to tell me the phone sounds fine. On the freeway at 65 mph they tell me it cuts out or it's fuzzy or they only hear some of my words. I don't remember having so many comments on this problem when I first got the car 2 years ago. It has never been as clear as my husbands Honda though.

Ive changed thermostat &hoses

One month now,when arrivingI

I bought this car in January of this year and the lights worked well for about 7 weeks. Then one night I got in to go to work and they didn't come on. This is an issue because I work graveyard shifts and need to see in the car before I get in.

Is there a fuse in my starter circuit that could be blown to prevent my car from turning over and starting? I drove it in a driveway shut it off and now it won't turn over all the lights come on but no start

It just started doing this a few days ago. I just recently filled it up with gas. I thought I might try one of those gas treatment additives. Any other ideas?


I was hit on the driver side in front of tire.

A month after I purchased my car the Check Engine Light came on and it started running extremely rough. I found out later that I was running with no Oil and that Impreza's had the problem of burning oil. I just want to know if there is anyway I could get it fixed under warranty or recall because I have no way of coming up with 3.5k to buy a new engine and get it installed. I bought the car to get to and from work, its useless if I cant do that.

No leaks, but did have one caliper that was very hard to compress.

I was wondering what to look gor and how reliable are they compare to let say a Honda or toyota. Thanks

I had to drop the tank to patch a couple rust spots, disconnected all fuel lines to tank including the ones that leads to the engine bay, replaced all of them, (DID NOT TOUCH ANY IN ENGINE BAY) after i put everything back in place, fuel started to spray out of the line coming up from the fuel lines traveling through underneath the car, replaced said lines, i put new clamps on the lines, that stopped the problem there, now right infront of the throttle body there is a fuel line right behind the power steering pump, connected to a power or sensor of some kind, and its spraying gas out of now, never had any problems like this until the changing of the fuel pump inside the gas tank. What could be the causing of this problem?

If my stereo cots off then my windshield wipers don't work as well. It's getting more frequent and sometimes for longer periods of time. I didn't know if there was a short somewhere? Is there a place where the stereo and windshield wipers could be linked somehow? More things might not work as well but those 3 are the only ones I notice so far.

my boyfriend thinks it may be one of the fans are drawing the battery down when it comes on. I just bought a new battery
