Hello, I am new here
I own a 1997 Impreza Outback Sport.

Recently I purchased a 1993 Loyale, Loyales are quite rare in my parts.
I purchased the car for 300$, running and driving (but not braking) so basically I'm here to ask questions and learn something.

My Impreza is my daily driver so I dare not attempt mods to it until my Loyale has been brought to a satisfactory level.

I am a student in auto mechanics. Which is why I bought my Loyale so I could work on it and mod it without much consequence. Pictures are of my carsAttached File  IMG_20130712_152425.JPG   191.96K   13 downloadsAttached File  IMG_20130712_152722.JPG   155.99K   15 downloads

Owning/rehabbing an older Subie is an excellent way to learn about auto mechanics. The only problem is that Subaru does a lot of things a little differently(usually different in a very good way) so when you transition to working on other cars you'll spend a lot of time thinking "why they heck did they do this this way".  Of course the alternative is to only own and work on Subies, that's the choice a lot of us here have made.

Well I hope to do my apprenticeship at a Subaru dealer. I work as an oil changer/ tire changer guy. And I do get to see a lot of really poor designs.

This is very true. There are some types of vehicles i will refuse to work on, for any amount of time or money, mainly transverse FWD types.

x2. Want to replace the starter on an Olds Aurora? Simply remove the intake manifold! :banghead:

 

Subaru's, especially the older ones like your loyale are perfect platforms to learn on. Simple and sensible with just a few quirks to give them some personality. You'll love it. Welcome to the board!

Welcome to the board! Is your Loyale 2wd or 4wd? If it's 2, and you find you are in need of new shoes/pads. I've got some brand new Bendix brake shoes sitting here that I could part with for real cheap.

My Loyale is 4WD manual, I actually just replaced the front discs and pads, and bled the system dry.
Now I have a problem, but I will start a thread under the correct category.

Already liking this board a lot. :clap:
