  1. As everyone else said those back pressure transdeucers do go bad...I was also going to suggest pulling the EGR pipe off the back of the head and starting up the car to hopefully blow all/ if any carbon out of the head...
  2. Thats Good to know...we all know those PCV's like to crack over the years... ...Thanks for the tip!
  3. If it happens to not be the starter. I have seen the battery cables get pretty corroded on these things with high mileage/age. Usually when you wiggle the cable it can intermittently make good contact. you can cut back the insulation a tad on the negative cable and the positive to see if you notice any green corrosion. might be something to look at.
  4. Just wanted to wish everyone on here a HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Havent been on here in a while due to other things in my life taking priority. Hope all is well!
  5. You could always just wrap the ball joint with a roll of duct tape, I kid you not I have seen guys do it with inner DOJ boots before, It was hilarious haha...But yea the dozens and dozens of subaru ball joints I have replaced I never considered re-booting one...Might be worth a shot in the future...
  6. Thanks man, I only drove it about 1,000 miles a year, I had car at full throttle only a handful of times, I know what the car was capable of, I didnt need to beat it, the guy that bought it got a deal in my opinion. as of now Im just happy paying one car insurance for my Legacy, just a month ago I was paying for the outback, wrx, and legacy, I have been eyeing the legacy sport sedans of the early 90's. Wicked looking Forester XT BTW
  7. Thanks for the input guys, your all right, I had it for sale for about two weeks, on craigslist, vehix, and outside of work with a massive sign on it, sold it to a guy and actually made a profit. I'm just curious to see how this kind of car would float with the other Subaru gurus on here.

  9. I have seen sticking relays cause this problem, however if both fans are doing it, considering they are run on separate relays I would doubt 2 relays would stick at once...
  10. Also check for excessive corrosion in the battery cables, most noticeably the ground which grounds back at the bolt that goes through the transmission bell housing.... I have seen this cause odd issues more times than once...
  11. Yea I'm going through my mind thinking what else is there besides the AC compressor haha....My first thought was the coil pack though thats not to the right of the alt. unless of course your viewing the engine from the drivers side haha...
  12. Also, These seals are directional so there is a left and right, make sure you get the right one, it will have little arrows on it for the direction of rotation and usually I also replace the large o-ring as well...
  13. I will say I have seen worse, Personally, from the thousands I have inspected, I wouldnt say there that that bad... are you getting any kind of noise while driving or do you notice like a top heavy feeling like the car isnt hugging the corners well enough?
  14. Personally when it comes to Subarus I only use OEM, I have had so many problems with NAPA and such and all different types of aftermarket pads ( problems such as fitment, noise etc...), I would go OEM on the pads. As for the rotors, if you pull them off yourself and bring them in to have them machined ( if they are in spec and not rusted/damaged significantly) it should be substantially cheaper, If you decide to replace them I have never really had a problem with aftermarkets here, So I would say aftermarket rotors and OEM pads...
