    That's the sound of all the money in your wallet being sucked into a black hole while you attempt to daily drive a 30+ year old car that's been sitting. GD

    Oh I didnt see it was an XT. I think all of them had CC. The engine is the same unless its a XT6. What do you mean weird noise?

    At idle it sometimes makes some weird noises. Bad fuel?

    87 XT idle issues. Dies when in gear.

    I actually have another discussion I'm part of that discusses just that. I don't know if it has a 3 or 4 speed. My shop and owners manuals disagree. I figured I'd count the shifts once it was running right, but i can't get it to do that.
  6. Before going too far, I agree the trans or torque converter may be a worth looking at.... Is this a three speed auto or four? Three speed did not use a TCU or TCM like the four speed

    Nice, the factory cruise control is pretty rare. I only seen one IRL and it was a GL-10 wagon.

    Thank you. I'll get some pictures when I get back from an appointment. The cruise control is factory and it's an auto tranny. The buttons by the horn.

    How low dose the oil get? It's pretty normal for these to only have 10-15 psi at idle.

    Is it factory cruise control, or aftermarket? Factory cruise control has a button on the dash under the defrost, and controls on the wheel. So if you look under the rear seat on the wall of the foot well there is a small bag with an allen wrench. That is for the seatbelts. You can put it in a hole behind the drivers seat and move the belt manually. Move it all the way back and forth, it should free up. Might start working then. Next I would check the door switch. The hot/cold is a pair for cables. You can remove the selector buttons, and pull out the controls. Then carefully remove the cables. They are attached on the other end, so pulling one should push the other. See if you can move them with some pliers, only pull the cable that is shorter. Squirt some lube on the cable as you pull the other cable. Which buttons cant you figure out? Show some pictures.

    Is a healthy engine. The cruise control don't work. It needs several days of cleaning. The drivers seatbelt doesn't go forward when going out. The air hot cold thing is stuck in the hot. Has that old car smell to it. Has a couple of buttons can't figure out where they go. Missing a center cap. Got it for $1200 the dang antenna still goes up n down. The drivers seatbelt top thing needs the panel fitted.

    1986 Subaru Xt 5 Spd 1.8 NA MPFI

    New injectors? A MPFI has 4. First I would make sure everything is plugged in 100%, then check the fusible links by the battery. Check with a multimeter to the contacts, should be dead short. The only fuse box is under the steering wheel, by the pedals.

  15. Hey all so i just finished rebuilding my EA82 and i have a no fuel issue. Starts with starting fluid but then dies when i stop. I have pressure from the pump and it has new fuel injector. It ran before just fine it started this issue after i put the engine in. Maybe im missing a wire? Or a fuse/relay went bad. Can anyone tell me where the box is for that? Or give me ideas
  16. With a broken axle and open front diff, you wouldn't get anywhere with a broken axle. Also the pads wear evenly ok both sides, and the tires spin freely. Also car doesn't pull when braking before the tire locks up, so both fronts are working. The biggest issue is the lack of traction on the front right. I have to use 4wd to pull on to the highway in the rain, or it will spin the tire so bad I can't accelerate. Even going into 2nd and 3rs I have to be gentle or it will spin it. Braking isn't as bad, as I am used to it locking up the tire in the rain.

    That's fine and dandy if you can find xt6 parts.

    1992 Loyale Wagon

    Rear Springs and Struts I ordered from rock auto as they have clearance on the struts and the springs! I used API 270470595 coil springs and Monroe 71352 struts. Total was $82 shipped! My only issue was the Monroe struts come with a cover for the rod. It has a metal washer to hold it on the top of the strut rod. The problem is this washer is larger than the relief in the Subaru cap. This causes you to be unable to install the top bushings. I omitted the cover, and ordered some generic ones. I initially thought the spring was too long, and cut one. I did test the second without cut just to see how much I lost. You can see the cover on the right: Stock vs Uncut and Struts: My wagon started with the right touching the bump stop due to my tools in the back. Numbers: 24.5" Before 27" Cut 28.25" Uncut Cut spring: Uncut:

  22. What are the 2 wires by the AC relays for? Behind passenger side strut tower, there are the 2 relays for the AC fan, the vacuum canister, and two loose wires with female spade connectors. Blue with yellow stripe and black. They are right here, you can see them in front of the bracket for the relays/canister:

    87 XT idle issues. Dies when in gear.

    @Rampage that sort of makes sense. Except that doesn't really explain the wandering idle when not in gear. It wanders in idle and P,N occasionally dipping low enough in the wanders to make the engine die.
  24. Clanking - if it’s piston slap, ignore it. Wont be fixing that and it’s benign.

    Prop open throttle plate, disable fuel pump (there’s a plug on pump under car in front of p/s rear wheel) test. Or pull the fuel hose in the engine bay and place it in a bottle surrounded by a towel so you can see what the fuel looks like at the same time. I doubt I’d bother, whatever issues it has won’t likely be compression. Or, if it is you can probably tell by seeing if the radiator is full or empty/antifreeze or water or it’s been abused.
