Timing belt one owner vehicle a fair amount of highway miles on it,chg. at 60000 wondering when or how to get it checked honestly etc.Also abs need to get it checked,if the fuse controls pump and I do get a drained battery can I remove fuse and solve problem till I get money> I do not think it is running all the time but reading reviews need to find out how to check etc..thanks Bruce
Manual transmission, To start with the key the clutch has to be in so by popping the cluch that with may not engage
My car was shaking an making noise in the front end especilly toward the front passenger took axle nut off to get to wheel bearing an can't take it out also trying to check tirods an anything else that would make the front end shake I jus bought this car
it just happened, it won't go into any gear at all. I can push the clutch in and i can go through all the gears but nothing happens
After complete tune-up and timing belt change, noticed loss of mpg. CEL indicated knock sensor. Had that replaced. Now 500 miles later, mpg is down to 19-20 (from original 28-30), idle is noticeably uneven, cold or warmed-up, and pretty fumey, sometimes seems to belch into car, occas had strong raw gas smell outside car near driver's door. No CEL indicators on, had it checked by 2 mechanics who couldn't find anything.
It is hard to start in the morning takes a few tries when I push on the gas while idling while it trys to start it dies. Friend told me it could be my fuel filter? ALSO a green power light flashes on sometimes when it shifts gears.
sputters then stops then I can start it back up
I had my head gasket replaced nov 2013 at a cost of $1500; 2008 legacy with 80,000; today the car is back in there for exact same issue, which they are covering seeing it is a few days shy of one year, but if subaru is now covering this I would like to be refunded.
In the summer I put in the AWD fuse (under the hood) to switch to 2wd. Well I've had some real bad work done on this vehicle (they told me they pulled the engine to replace the radiator), now when I put the fuse in the vehicle wont shift out of 1st gear (automatic). I cannot find any mechanic that has ever heard of this. The dealer wants 2500$ up front to do a diagnostic.
Can you shed any light on this?
This occurs every time a turn is made. The tighter the turn, the more strain appears to be placed on the engine.
frm the servo, there are 2 brake lines going to the front brakes, and 3 going to the back. I want to block off the rear brakes and only use the front brakes to get it to a shop. where can I block off the rear brakes and what do the 3 lines go to? which is which>?
