For testing purposes, can you try another browser and see if it still happens?

Thanks
I tried IE 11.0.126 and the behavior is the same.

That didn't fix the problem. As soon as I close the page, I need to log in again when returning.

Thanks for letting us know. We've been continuing to work on things, so please let us know if it continues.

Just to confirm, are you checking the "remember me" check box when logging in?

I find that my login isn't remembered between sessions - I have to log in again even though I checked the "remember me" box (Firefox 66.0.5 64 bit on Win 8.1 x64).

I usually use carburetor cleaner - Gum Out or similar - followed by WD-40 as lube.

Re: What are our options for window rain guards???

I used AVS rain guards on my '02 LGT wagon and my '17 OB; they worked well. The guards for the frameless windows on my '02 attached to the body with clearance so the doors willopen with the windows fully up. They are sold on Amazon among other places. It's worth a look to see whether they still sell...

Re: Rough Idle when AC is on

This can be a sticky IACV (idle air control valve); usually drenching it with carb cleaner and manually working it back and forth will free it up. This is particularly likely if RPMs drop rather than rise when the compressor kicks in.

Re: Clutch recommendations

I've had good experiences with CenterForce Dual Friction clutches. I haven't had one last less than 70k miles, and I like control they gave me. The stock clutches were like on/off switches - difficult to modulate. The CenterForce was easy to modulate and could hold anything my NA engines ('90 & '02 ...

The 2015+ Legacy and Outback are 5x114. This site doesn't host images, so I don't have them here; however, I have them in the listings on NASIOC, Legacy GT, Subaru Outback, and Craig's List.

Re: Valve adjustment of a 2.5 in 1st gen legacy

I was able to do it in my '90 and '02. It was necessary to pull the washer reservoir and the airbox to get room, but that's all. There isn't excess room by any stretch of the imagination, but there is enough.

Re: FS: (WI) Takeoff '17 Outback 2.5i Premium Wheels & Tires

No further price reductions - this is as low as it goes. These are Subaru hub-centric wheels and the price is already lower than aftermarket wheels with TPMS sensors (plastic spacer and incorrect offset in almost all cases). The nearly new tires are a bonus..

I'm in West Lafayette, IN, just a few miles from the Subaru plant.

There are no tire with the wheels; the ones that were on them didn't have much life left. I have a couple of inquiries, but no firm offers yet. I liked the look of these wheels, but did a +2 upgrade to go with my suspension mods. I'm now running Goodyear Eagle F1s in 225/40ZR-18 on 18x8 wheels; the ...

It sounds as though you have a rich mixture, which could be caused by the intake airflow sensor (MAP or MAF) or an exhaust oxygen sensor; I'd bet on the oxygen sensor on a high-mileage engine like yours.

KYB makes the OEM struts and shocks, so they're shouldn't be any fitment issues. They made a huge difference on my '02 LGT, greatly reducing squat/dive and making the car much more settled in turns. They are significantly stiffer than OEM, so there is more NVH transmitted to to the cabin; if you're ...
