Car has ran fine, no problems or warnings till this happened. Fuel pump runs for a couple seconds like it always did. has 3/4 tank of gas, full of oil and water. It died just like turning switch off. Lights on dash lite up like always. everything works except engine won't fire. I don't have or can find book that covers h6. don't know where or what sensors and relays are.
We found in it but i never had alarm just regualr key what do we do
Kinda putters when I first start it also,and when I go in reverse.
I was told the engine has to be replaced, it looks like it spun a rod bearing
My Outback overheats after driving for a few minutes. I have changed the thermostat and radiator cap and it still does it. It can idle for an hour, and not overheat, but drive it for 5 or 6 miles and it jumps to hot!
Tried:
Plugs
Air filter
Oil and filter
Sea Foam in 2 tanks of fuel
Coil
Fuel filter
What is wrong with the car and is it reparable and how much will it cost?
When I start the car it takes a while to go into gear - as if it needs to build up pressure first. It drives fine going down the road as long as you don't stop and turn sharp right???
Have replaced ECT sensor,can take cap off of radiator with just initial fluid loss from it bein warm after running ad water and still shows hot.no pressure when off it is cool to finger inside radiator. No blowing fluid out, it produces a bubble every so often , but system was back flushed, and blown out doesn't leak till over flow is full it takes 1mile or so before temp is all the way up on gage. I am a mechanic but this has exhausted my knowledge. I am very puzzled I'm disabled and in need of this vehicle badly for dr.appt etc scheduled for surgery on the 19 of December and mite loose leg above knee. Really pressed to fix problem before this date. Need someone's help badly
At hwy speeds, I get a noticeable vibration when power is applied. It Goes away when steady or decelerating. Wheels just balanced and alignment feels good. This not the same as other posts about shutter on takeoff.
Get an estimate and never overpay again
