    1991 loyle spfi iac wiring

    Its likely the the wire on the engine harness is broken . Ill have to trace it . Thanks all .
  2. The two wire plug to my idle air control valve ......... the ground wire was showing open . I had 11.6 volts to the positive side . so I just grounded the ground wire to the engine . now it has weird idle issues . does the ground wire go thru the ecm . . it runs better un hooked . just wont idle when cold. and starts hard . arrgggg.
  3. My first time doing a ej22 , do I need to get the oem gasket , or will felpro perma torq ?
  4. My 1991 loyale will discharge the battery if not run in 3 or 4 days , Alternator is good , Battery is new , and I load tested it , Did a specific gravity test, all cells good . I remember hearing about the ignition switch going bad and doing all sorts of weird things. Any help would be appreciated .

    Exhaust issues

    Tap the holes using a 7/18 x 18 tpi tap . no need to drill it out. then buy 7/16 exhaust studs .
  6. 1998 forester , blower only works on high , I see a pic of the resistor , but I cant find where it is on the car ? is it in the same spot as the older gl/ loyale .

    Oil pump reseal / no pressure

    My next step is to use a test gauge to verify the oil pressure . I was just paranoid and didn't want to do any damage im sure I am over thinking it. it did seem to shoot out a lot of oil from the sending unit hole

    Oil pump reseal / no pressure

    its was just under half on the gauge when cold , the lifters don't pump up , I have only ran it for 30 seconds so far , but usally they stop clattering by then .

    93 loyale fwd inner tie rods.

    I just used 2 adjustable wrenches . I think the flats on the inner rod is 19 mm ,
  12. when the dash light glow , is a bad regulator . You will get ac readings on your volt ohm meter .I have had " rebuilt alternators " bad out of the box . some rebuilders just clean and replace only the bad parts . and they don't properly test the regulator .
  13. Just did a reseal on a ea82 , now I have no oil pressure . there is oil volume . I took out the sending unit and ran it for a couple of seconds . oil everywhere . I have done several of these with no problem . is there a pressure relief check ball that may have fallen out ?

    Water Leak Down Test? What and How?

    most small head gasket leaks will happen only at full operating temperature as Subaru nut says
