The longer the trip, the more the clutch slips when accelerating. It grabs after a few seconds. The engine oil leak is more than like coming from?
problem started 1 mo ago I hear water surging through system on firewall while inside the car every time started & driven.
I'm a little new to the Subaru Loyale which has a 1.8l with a 3-speed transmission, I bought it recently and the previous owner had mentioned it leaked oil from the valve cover. I recently had to make a long distance trip with it and it leaked oil onto the exhaust, causing it to smoke, I kept pulling over, cleaning up the oil, letting it cool down. After a long period of time, the engine noise changed, but didn't drop power. I don't want to do any damage to it, seeing as I got it just recently. So how would I go about replacing the valve cover? (Changing the water pump is just because it came with it when I bought the car.)
my 1992 suburu loyal died going up my hill. it still starts but wont stay running no matter how much gas i give it. if i had to guess id say fuel filter or fuel pump but im no mechanic. please help.
Car is 4wd wagon, 1.8 TBI engine, it revs very low when first started then idles very high after it warms up, 1500 rpm, normal is about 700.
The button for the 4wd still clicks in and out, but just won't come out of 4wd.
How do I change an alternator on my 1992 Subaru Loyale?
My 1993 subaru loyale just won't start sometimes. usually happens when parked on flat surface. automatic gears won't shift. wheel seems to lock then unlock. when i push the gear release...shift lever will move, but still won't start even in neutral. when i'm about ready to call a tow truck, then all of a sudden it starts on its own. been told it may be the linkage, then told maybe the neutral safety switch...but when its looked at it always starts then....been told it might have to completely leave me stranded before someone will know what this
I was driving in traffic, and when I started to pass, I was in the wrong gear so I shifted quickly to have power to pass..moments later, my car lost power and did a backfiring noise, then died. When I tried to restart it, I kept getting the backfiring noise, and of course the car will not start. Can someone provide a clue as to what may have happened? The car was recently tuned - new plugs, rotor, wires, fuel filter.
Thanks in advance
I have a 1992 Subaru Loyale, great running car, but with an issue that is puzzling me. My A/C works ice cold, but then after a while the air starts to get warm at which point I have to turn it off then back on, which then starts the cold air flowing again. It is very consistent in doing this, but I am afraid the turning on and off to maintain coolness will eventually hurt something. Can anyone give me some insight as to what is causing this?
