Hello new friends,
I have recently purchased a 1992 Subaru Loyale 1.8L on-demand AWD 5 speed with 143k from a friend.
It is not in running condition and when it died it just stopped with no sign or reason.
Before I purchased it they tried replacing the following
The car stopped running back in November 2012 and hasn't started since.
I've spent 3 hours on this already and am ready to be done.
I've double checked the timing of cylinder #1 and the distributor. They are in time and I get a strong spark to cylinder #1 and #3 however, I get a very weak signal to the other side #2 and #4. I'm confused by this, I even replaced the CAP again and same thing.
I haven't tested compression yet, but I was able to see the intake valves on #1 while turning the motor for TDC (via TDC whistle indicator).
and I haven't tested for proper fuel pressure, however we get a nice steady flow.
The motor does not sound like it has loss of compression, but doesn't sound 100% when cranking. \
I assumed that it was flooded so it has been aired out.
I will test for compression and injector pulse tomorrow.
Could it be possible that if the #2 and #4 timing belt is broken that it would give a weak spark?
I haven't pulled the covers yet, because it is a little intensive to pull those things. lol. The car is still at my friends Apartment so this is all being done onsite, not in a garage.
Any info would be great. This is my first boxer motor and I'm very excited about the Journey we will have together.
again thank you new friends
