My left timing belt recently broke why i was driving on my 91 Subaru Loyale with the EA82
I replaced both timing belts (they were done about 60K miles ago along with the water pump) following the EA82 T-Belt replacement guide by MilesFox
Once i got it put back together i started it up, it seemed to start and idle fine and i moved it out of the shop.
Next day i went to go to work, and let it warm up for a few mins, when i got in it to go i noticed it seemed kinda sluggish... I thought it was just because i wasn't used to driving it after driving a car that had quite a bit more power. After pulling out of the drive way, i started to accelerate and thats when i figured out something was really wrong with it.
At first i manged to get it into 3rd gear before it didn't have the power to go any faster, but the more it warmed up the weaker it got. After turning around about 1K feet down the road, i could only drive it back in first gear.
The Right cylinders seem to be running rough and backfiring. At first i figured i had my timing off by a bit, but i've double and triple checked it and had friends check it too, and it is perfectly on.
Has anyone else ever had anything like this happen? Any ideas?
Thanks in advance!
