  1. Check out this post and follow the link. Someone wrote those lines are the screen sensors. The screen has faded to the point you see them now. Some dealers replace and some don't. Did not read entire article. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.reddit.com/r/subaru/comments/5jlz8a/subaru_infotainment_system_lines_on_screen/
  2. Your AT temp light is blinking after using that product. I think you may have damaged your MAF. They are not that expensive at the yard or ebay. I am sure a few people her have some for sale
  3. I have a 98 OBW with 2.2. I barely get 20 mpg. Plugs and a fuel filter may help. If I get around to it I may try new injectors in the future. Car is over 20 years old.
  4. The condition you are describing with rust and a failed transmission is what I would call a parts car. $500 top end. Look on Craigslist to see what people are asking.
  5. 60 to 65 mph is a tire out of balance or bent rim. Same thing I guess.
  6. Head gasket. You really need a solid test drive of 30 to 60 minutes. Need the engine at temp for an extended period of time. At that mileage expect and add in HG failure into you price
  7. Clear the codes and see what comes back. This will not clear the AT temp light from blinking. Lets treat that as a seperate issue for now.
  8. Did you use your clockspring? Used part could have a faulty one? Did you plug all wires in?
  9. A shaking steering wheel at 60 to 65 mph is due to front tires being out of balance.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Thanks for the followup. Glad to hear the diy $120 scanners are on par with pro equipment.
  14. 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
