Im looking inoto buying a 1998 subaru legacy brighton. the guy says an alignment cant be done and theres a small leajk in the transmission. i want to know the cost of getting it fixed and if its worth buying.

A 1998 Subaru Legacy l wagon could have either a 2.5 L engine, or a 2.2 liter engine, isn't that so?

Does gas tank have to come out to pinpoint a leak in a brake line on 1998 subaru wagon?

when i put a brand new battery in the car theres still no electricity.

The new pump sounds like it is working, but still no fuel in the lines. Could this be a fuel relay problem?

the engine dies, so I have to power off for a second or two then hit the gas, then its all good. Any suggestions as to why the power drops in that range would greatly be appreciated, cheers Donnie.

repair was done light is off but has not reset

A van tore the front bumper completely off, should I replace it?

For the last couple of weeks, I hear a loud knocking coming from the front driver's side of my car. It happens once I have been driving for atleast 15 minutes. It almost sounds like it happens when the tire is rotating. Going over bumps and turning the wheel has no effect on the knocking. I could be going straight on an even surafce and it still happens. I have looked this up before and believed it to be the CV joint and/or boot but I had a mechanic look at it and he said those looked fine. The lug nuts are tight and the brakes and roters were changed 2 months ago. Please help with any auggestions I can ask my mechanic. Thank you.

I just got a price of $500 to replace the front struts if the old brackets can still be used. My front driver's side is leaking fluid.
