90' Legacy wagon ?common problems?
Posted 27 February 2004 - 07:45 AM
It has high miles 162000, but I could not beat the deal. I will do all fluids, plugs, wires, cap, air filter and the such.
there is a small oil leak around the oil filler housing but I am guessing it is just a gasket or O-ring.
Thanks for any info you guys can give me.....

I had the tranny go bad on 92 Loyale at about 160K miles. Not sure why, it may have run out of oil.

Cam shafts front and rear, crank front and rear (engine or tranny needs to come out). Certainly oil pump o-ring and housing seal. Valve cover seals, including those around the bolts.
CV boots will need inspection.
If its and early model manual transmission, the main bearings fail around 120k, and should have been replaced.
162k miles is only about half-way for the engine

He also covered the common oil leaks, and there is a hesitation issue and the interior materials are sub-par...
Also check out bbs.legacycentral.org for LOTS more info...

Was the timing belt changed at 120K?

I am have a problem with going over bumps, the @ss end seems to slide to the side of the bump? I have the air ride suspension and I heard and read that is a PITA to work on. I don't think it is working.
Thanks for everybodys info.

Must be why I was able to sell it for 12% of its original price
