My dad and I were working on our subaru this saturday because my mom said there was something wrong with the clutch. So we go drive the car up on a couple of ramps and check under the hood too see if it was leaking hydorlic fluid, because we had seen some drips of something on our driveway. So we spend about two hours looking around and dont find anything but an oil leak. It looked like it was comming from valve cover so my dad takes his 10mm wrench and tightens down those three bolts on the left side. Thinking that we were all done we came inside to take a break and have lunch. After we were done eating we went back outside to get the car off the ramps. For some screwed up reason it wouldnt start. So we rolled it off the ramps and parked it and decieded that it would be best left for tommorrow since we were getting too pissed off and wanted to shoot the damn thing.
So after a night of brain storming and reading the hayne's automotive repair manual, my dad, a friend, and me get back to working on it yesterday. First thing we did was try and start it because we had thought that mabey my dad had flooded it the day before, but it still doesnt start. Next we loosen up the bolts on the valve cover that we had tightened because my friend thought we might have tightened it so tight that the rockerarms couldnt move but that wasn't it either.
So we wip out the hayne's manual and read through the trouble shooting to do what it says. First thing the manual has us check is the fule pump. The book said to stand at the back of the car with the gas cap off and ear close to listen for a "whirring sound" from the fuel pump when the key is turned. Couldnt hear anything so the very next step in the book is to check the FUEL PUMP FUSE.
PROBLEM THERE IS NO FUEL PUMP FUSE OR ATLEAST THE OWNERS MANUAL FOR MY LEGACY DOESNT DOESNT TALK ABOUT ITS LOCATION NEITHER DOES THE HAYNE'S MANUAL.

My guess is that a wire was knocked loose while reaching around in the engine.

i only connected the obd (the green cabels) for a moment to see what would happen but it scared the **** out of me so i turned it off and disconnected
how do i get rid of the click noise now. it definatively comming from the abs control module unit in the engine bay

The pump should definitely see 12v, or whatever the battery is seeing. What's the voltage at the pump?
Not sure how to get rid of the clicking noise coming from the abs....you're talking about the ABS computer, relay, or control unit in the engine bay?

I am workign w/ my fuel pump also and I seem to be getting this click noise from under hood. It seems to go away after I play around w/ some cables by the brake pedal. It comes back again later.
Thanks for any help.
