Re: No tail lights, dash lights, or marker lights

This is also worth a mention. It made me go towards a grounding problem. I killed my battery while seeking this problem (left the door open). I grabbed the charger to charge the battery, and while it was charging, the marker lights and tail lights start working! Once I took the car off the charger, ...

No tail lights, dash lights, or marker lights

I have been having this issue for a few weeks now. Upon searching I have found it is something that comes up often. I trouble shot what feels like everything that was mentioned, and I'm coming up empty handed. I have checked the relay, it works fine. All fuses are working properly, none are blown. I...

Re: Legacys in the media

The new Legacy commercial features a 1st gen. Legacy. They show a father teaching his son to drive in their old car. Not sure of trim, but its a white sedan.

Re: Car sometimes won't start when its warm

Well, looking for the pump it appears I can't find a picture of one anywhere on line with what was on my pump. Very strange. Here is a picture of one I stole off Google Image search...on the metal brace, you can see where the fuel line comes right up, there is a small dimple on the photo. On that di...

Re: Car sometimes won't start when its warm

Car has been running great. Love the new pump, the car starts the second I turn it over, and accelerates without any issue. Warm startup is great as well. I should have just replaced the pump in the first place, but I'm glad I ended up doing some research and going with the Walbro. Thanks Josh for t...

Re: Car sometimes won't start when its warm

I was thinking the same thing. I put the new Walbro pump in today. Installation was easy with the proper fit kit this one came with. There was a small servo that was attached to the pump housing that the Walbro didnt need. Someone spliced it up with the old pump and some wiring was exposed. This cer...

Re: Car sometimes won't start when its warm

It looks like it had shorted out at one point in time, and the harness has already been spliced up. It also has had the fuel pump replaced by the looks of the wiring.

Re: Car sometimes won't start when its warm

Drove the car around for a while on Saturday without any hiccups. I go to pick up lunch, and it starts acting up again. Same exact symptoms as before. Thankfully I have gotten smart, and bring my toolbox with me on my trips just in case that would happen. I listen for the fuel pump making noise, and...

The car not running has been bugging the heck out of me for the past month. It's bugging my girlfriend too, because all I'm doing is fiddling with the damn thing every free moment I get. haha.

Re: Car sometimes won't start when its warm

So, Im awaiting the sensors to arrive still. I went to move the car the other day, and it wouldnt start. Car was sitting for a couple days. I check to see why it wont start, and discover the fuel pump isnt priming. So, I check under back seat to see if it was the harness that burns out. Come to find...

Re: Car sometimes won't start when its warm

So, it's not the coolant temp sensor. Next steps are replacing cam and crank sensor. Darn those things are expensive. While replacing the CTS I had noticed a lot of oil blow by had dripped onto the harness under throttle body. Perhaps its possible that is making it act up? I haven't cleaned the conn...

Re: Car sometimes won't start when its warm

So, I unplugged the Coolant Temp Sensor to see if I could replicate the problem, and the car was acting the same way when it was hot and gave me the no start issue. So, lets see if replacing it does any good.

Re: Car sometimes won't start when its warm

Coolant temp sensor is a much cheaper alternative. Now, how can I test if they are bad? The car isn't throwing a code, so will this mean if the car is operational, everything will read okay? This sucks, because I will never know if I fix this issue until one day I'm somewhere, and the darn thing won...

Re: Car sometimes won't start when its warm

The car's mpg has not changed at all since this problem began. I did measure the fuel pressure, and that was okay. Checking with a few other people, they have told me either crank or cam sensor. Which, seems like it may be making sense. If it is faulty, and throws a code when the engine hits a certa...

Car sometimes won't start when its warm

So, here's a mystery to me. I'm hoping someone has some insight into this. My car (the 91 SS) starts no problem when its cold. I can get in it, and take it anywhere. After driving it a long distance, and shut off the car, it won't start. It is almost as if a. the engine is flooded or b. it's out of ...

Great pictures. I only live 40 mins. from there, and I didn't go. Would have loved to join the 1st gen. crew. Maybe next year.

Re: 1st gen turbos in movies/shows

Bumping this because the Seinfeld episode was on last night. I've actually never seen that episode before, I saw a glimpse of an SVX first, and thought that'd be great to see a Legacy, and next thing you know, there it is! I knew there was a thread on this, all us Legacy lovers couldn't miss that one.

Re: No Power Steering

It was definitely the lines leaking. After I replaced the lines, filled the system back up, everything was fine. I thought there was fluid in the system, but I opened up the lines and nothing came out. At least it was a simple fix.

Re: No Power Steering

Well, if thats the problem, I can crack it open and grab some new o-rings. There is a significant amount of fluid dripping out, but perhaps its just spraying everywhere. Just odd the P.S. stopped working and the lines underneath started leaking at the same time.

So, one problem solved, and another comes to light. Finally got my issues with my ATF cooler all straightened out, and my g/f comes home after taking the dog to the park and goes "The car has no power steering." Ugh, so get back under the car, and it looks like a couple of the inlet and outlet hard ...

The rest of the removal was pretty straight forward. Installation wasn't difficult either. I fed the bolt and washer through the hard line, sna...
