1998 Legacy Starting Problems
Posted 24 July 2005 - 04:40 PM
If he shuts down the A/C, makes sure the headlamps are off, etc., and then lets it sit for a few minutes and then cranks it, it turns over as if there was never a problem.
The garage can't do a code read since the vehicle successfully starts before he drives it there. They told him they would tow it and pull the codes the next time it clicks on start up. However, he would like to save himself from having to have the Suby towed.
I suggested the starter; however, having only worked on Fords (I have a Sport Trac, but there's also an '05 Legacy GT Ltd in the family that I have yet to toy with) I am unfamiliar with Subarus and their issues.
Any help is appreciated.

Is there a typical mileage these go out? On 80-series Landcruisers it's usually about 100k, and an engine fire can result if the contacts weld to the plunger.
Wow, right on! I just went out and checked my notebook--changed mine at 101k.
