  1. Thanks for the tips guys, I will try the smaller punch from the other side!
  2. Its an 04 Impreza with a manual. Went to change front CV axles. First one went fine. I punched out roll pin from the unbeveled hole side of the DOJ housing as per write up I found. The second CV axle has the pin sticking out about 20% of its length on the beveled side so I went to the unbeveled side to knock it out. It did not come out and the part sticking out snapped off. I soaked the stuck pin for and hour and then went back to work from the unbeveled side again with a 5 lb hammer. I have been using the correct punch, and I cant get it out. I think the common mistake of installing it half a tooth off was made. My questions are 1) SHould I keep trying to hit it harder from only the unbeveled side (as opposed to swicthing sides) and 2) I am afraid if I keep hitting it I will damage the tranny? or should I just whale away. Any suggestions. I have done a this job a few times and never had this problem. Thanks.
  3. I agree that the tps is the most likely culprit, since I put one on from an EJ25. I am not really sure I followed the correct procedure though. What is the correct procedure to install a TPS sensor ??. I also called my local dealer, and they told me that the the EJ22 tps sensor is specific to the ej22 and ones taken from a EJ25 will not work. I go on ebay and rock auto and they say different. The dealer said the part number is 22633AA151 or 2263AA15B. Anyone have any experience with this. I went to my local pick and pull and pull and could not find one from a ej22. I would go ahead and order the 22633AA151 from ebay but am worried it will not work and I cant afford the one from the dealer. Thanks for taking the time to read this any help is always much appreciated.
  4. Thanks guys much appreciated, I will try the suggestions and let everyone know how it went.
  5. I sprayed starter fluid. It kept running and then I put my foot on the gas and held it at a high Rpm for 2 minutes, and the engine ran. When I let go of the gas she stumbles and stalls. I think the fuel pump is good, and voltage at battery is good (new battery). Also still no codes. Checked all vacum lines again, looked good. I dont know how to check for good grounds. Is it possible the timing belt skipped a few teeth? I have done a couple of timing belt jobs and never had an issue. This has me stumped.
  6. Thanks for the ideas. I will try them out and get back.
  7. I have a 99 Legacy with the EJ22, auto 180 000 miles. I just got bought the car real cheap because the water pump leaked. I changed the water pump and timing belt and idlers. I also had to change the throttle postion sensor (used one from pick pull) because I broke it with a large prybar holding the flywheel when I took off the crankshaft pulley. So after the timing belt job the motor ran great for about 20 min, while I slowly refiled the the rad. Now for some reason when I start the engine, it it only idles for 5 seconds and then dies. It did throw a 1507 idle control code at first buy not any more. Any ideas on what to check first? I wonder why I am not getting any codes at all on my scanner? Seems weird that it would run fine for 20 min and then not! I feel it should be related to something I did, but I triple checked all vacum lines and without any codes I am lost? I do have a 98 ej22 auto parts carts handy. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks
  8. Thanks a bunch. Sorry I forgot to post the miles, it is low. only 130k, and car was in bit of a small acident, front end.
  9. I have a 2001 Legacy that idles rough when started, and then the idle will smooth out when full temp is reached, but when you drive it it still hesitates a bit on aceleration. The OBD says I have a misfire on 3 cylinders. Should I just change the ignition coil? Can I test the coil first to see if it bad? Thanks for your help it is always much appreciated.
  10. I have a 98 and a 99 Legacy both with the EJ22, I mixed up the parts from both and had a hell of a time trying to put the 98 timing belt on the 99. I now know that 90-98 2.2 and 1.8 used the same belt with 211 teeth.99-up SOHC 2.5 used a longer belt IIRC. with 223 teeth. SInce I mixed up all the idlers, and the tensioer I am now wondering if I can mix and match them? Thanks again for everyones help, it is much appreciated.
  11. Does anyone have any experience and or recomendation on an inexpensive timing belt kit for a 1999 ej22 and a 1998 DOCH EJ25. I am not in a rush as the cars are not my daily drivers. They are older cars and I do not want to spend the money on factory subaru parts, other than the water pump gasket and maybe the cam seals. I would just like to know if anyone knows of a kit that is inexpensive but seems to be good value. There seems so may to choose from on ebay, etc. Thanks for your time it is much appreciated.
  12. Ok guys. Thanks, I will remove the belt, and use and Subaru Factory Gasket.
  13. I just bought a 99 Leg with a EJ22. Previous owner changed timing belt and water pump recently. Water pump leaks at the gasket. Is it possible to change the water pump without removing the timing belt. Has anyone ever tried to clamp down tiiming belt while removing tensioner and the idler that blocks the water pump? Thanks,.
  14. Thanks a bunch guys. I found what looks like an almost new one at pick and pull!
