Re: What did you do to your Subie today?

It was 95 per... Ya it is low, but Greg said I shouldnt worry about it being there with the mileage and even numbers Did you open the throttle while you were cranking? Did you have all 4 plugs out? I see a combination of three or four things making your numbers low: 1. Throttle closed 2. Other plug...

Re: What do the hoses by the iac go to

It's part of your crankcase breather/PCV system. Pretty important to keep together, so of course replace the broken tee. I wouldn't worry about the crud buildup unless it's becoming a restriction. That said, you should make sure your PCV valve is clean enough (it's the part screwed into the intake m...

Re: Machining flywheel for 9" WRX clutch disk. VS 8-7/8" sto

Strange. There's been a WRX clutch bolted to a (non-resurfaced) Legacy Turbo flywheel in my car for many thousands of miles as well. Even if the disc was the tiniest bit larger than the friction surface (which I don't remember being the case) the clutch should still operate normally. Do you know wha...

I've seen one matching that description right there. It had a huge muffler, and I think no rear spoiler. His car wasn't nearly as fast as mine. :lol: I talked to him at a gas station once...Nice guy, but I don't think he posts here.

I can possibly hook you up with a Haltech Sprint 500 just like the one in my SS, maybe even as a "plug and play" if you want. Lemme know if you're interested.

Your CEL shouldn't be blinking at any sort of interval...unless you're running in D-Check mode. Do you know if the green and/or black check connectors under the dash are plugged in?

Re: Need some mad help asap!

^^What he said. It could also be your water pump going out, sometimes they only leak when the motor's hot.

Have you gotten under your car to look for a trail of coolant?

P.S. This thread should probably be moved to the Engine forum. :-)

Wait, so you also replaced the knock sensor and the injectors? Are they the OEM "pink" ones, and are the replacement ones used, new, reconditioned, or ?

Did you replace the knock sensor with a NEW one or another used one?, Also, has the "Check Engine" light come on at any time? And just wondering...why did you change the knock sensor if it ran fine before? :)

Re: Red top injectors in a ej20g???

Different mounts? Have you actually tried Phase 1 DOHC rails? They should bolt right on.

You know, like a mid-late 90's Outback/Forester/RS with a 2.5 DOHC.

Why don't you just get some Phase 1 DOHC fuel rails at the salvage yard? Way cheaper than the adapter kits out there.

A really low idle can easily trigger the "OIL" light, especially when the oil's hot. I wonder if your IAC valve is all gummed up. :smt017
