highly annoying problem with 93 Sub Legacy FWD wagon
Posted 05 February 2013 - 12:08 AM
When you shift into gear engine idles fine no problema there but when you try to give it gas it boggs down and almost shuts off. can slighlty touch gas and posssibly get over 1500rpmthen it runs fine again till it shifts and rpm drops. its just barely driveable but not enough for my wife to feel "safe". Ive changed MAF, Knock sensor tried swapping ecu and pther minor things. really dont want to junk the car engine runs great body is in really good condition interior and exterior. any ideas or thoughts qould be greatly appreciated. i HAVE to get this thing going before i can work on my 90 legacy sedan 5spd, which im so ready to get back on the road as well, well woods mainly but thats just the fun of it.

Another possibility is a bad ECT sensor.

He was just shotgunning parts at it much like it sounds you have been doing, but since I had a shed full of parts to pick from it wasn't costing him anything to try. It's not the right way to diagnose things, but it will eventually work.
So try a coilpack, the Diamond brand ones of the 5spd cars are supposedly better. Then try an ignitor module.
