  1. Does the car sort of slam into park? Do you have to give it gas to move the car while in reverse? The parts are not that expensive. Here is a link that will give you an idea.
  2. Resolder R1 resistor. Seems like all you do is warm the contacts up a little until it goes to liquid. Maybe add a dab of solder to the point on your solder gun.
  3. I have read on a few electrical forums that you can't properly test the resistance of a resistor that is soldered to a circuit board. You are testing every other component in that circuit.
  4. Thanks for the followup. Glad to hear the diy $120 scanners are on par with pro equipment.
  5. Check ebay for parts. Does not pay to visit the yard anymore. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F153103726965
  6. Not that expensive. Couple hours of work I am sure. Here is the part https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F112690923300
  7. I think have this same noise you have described on my 97 2.2. Thermal expansion of the piston was what I understood for the noise going away after warm up. Record a video and share.
  8. Check out the crp123. Looks like that may be a winner https://www.subaruoutback.org/forums/66-problems-maintenance/128018-autel-al619-subaru-compatability.html

  10. Here is how I rebuilt mine. http://www.ultimatesubaru.org/forum/topic/162275-knuckle-rebuild-after-ball-joint-pinch-bolt-snapped/?fromsearch=1
  11. Take the nut off the ball joint flip it over and screw back on a little. Take a floor jack and place it under that nut. Jack it up a little until you see the control arm move up. Go to Lowes and get a 3 foot pipe used for natural gas applications. Direct the pipe on the control arm and just keep hitting it downwards with a hand held sledge hammer. This may go on for 30 minutes until you see it drop off the ball joint.
  12. Please take lmdew up on the offer. I wish I did a year ago before I got involved in the same situation your in now.
  13. Your not the first. Try getting the engine up to operating temp and try to twist both directions. This guy used a dremmel and cut it out and that still did not work. https://forums.vwvortex.com/showthread.php?5735677-36-mm-socket-cracked-then-disintegrated-my-oil-filter-housing#/topics/5735677?page=1
  14. Hello Keith, did this issue ever come back 10 years later?
