    Low idle with my '92 Loyale

    Ok, Don't stay with the Dark side of the force. If you use the Force for good it will guide you. The Force is telling me that all things ignition related is your issue. If you use the Force it will guide you step by step to eliminate the ery Dark side of the Force. Use the Force MD. It will guide you. Squealing noise. The Force tells me that it should not squeal. If your belts are loose or glazed it could possibly not turn the alternator fast enough to generate the necessary voltage. Weaker spark, lower voltage does create sais Yoda. Make sure that you are generating 13.5 Vlts to 14.5 volts with all your lights on sais the Jedi master. Jedi has replaced plugs and wires and battery so the Force is telling me that these are not the issue. Awe...Low RPM? From where else could this problem come come from???????? The CPS could create such a headache rumored from stories told on this forum long ago. What is the CPS or EPS sais the young Luke? The Crank Position Sensor or the Engine Position Sensor is actually located on the distributor young Luke. Different from other vehicles this is. This needs to be carefully marked and removed. Disassembled and cleaned. The sensor is a notorious collector of moisture dirt and oil the Force tells me. Clean thoroughly with electrical parts cleaner. Oh Master tell me more you say? In time young Luke. In time. There is ancient documentation on this forum about how to adjust your throttle stop or EPS Luke. The Force will guide you in your journey to find it or Jezek will just post it. This is probably why it tries to start when you pump the throttle because it needs to find itself right at the beginning. Most important step this is sais Yoda. One could chase ones tail if your adjustments aren't correct. Uhhhhmmmmmm, Meditation time it is..........Hmmmmmmmmmmmm. May the Force be with You.........\ Cheers,

    tranny stuck In third...WTH?

    Yep, listen to the above. Most like your synchro is has hung up. You can try removing the linkage and shift boot covers and tapping the base of the shifter with a rubber mallet. I did this and it popped out. I replaced the oil with good synthetic and haven't had a problem. That does not mean it is a guaranteed fix because the problem is still there. Just my opinion might be worth trying. Good Luck

    92 loyale wont start! Help!

    1. Make sure your air cleaner is hooked up. MAP sensor will not work unless it is drawing air. 2. Make sure fuel lines are not backwards. 3. Make sure you tighten the dogsnot out of those round engine connectors. These are pretty common. Been there done that examples. Good Luck
  6. Wow, that is not good. I will definitely not use WIX.
  7. Sounds like your fuel pump relay under the dash column above your computer...... Did you try bypassing it to check?
  8. I like the carpet idea. You can get fuzzy dice to match!

    EA82 SPFI Loyale Won't Start

    You bet brother. Till you are crosseyed. Spray some electrical cleaner in there and blow out with air. They are tough. I now just use a pair of channel locks. Got tired of pushing them together. Cheers
  10. Well did it fix the original problem? Don't leave us hanging?....LOL.
  11. This is most likely your sending unit or lines.
  12. Learned something on this thread! Thanks!

    subaru loyale radiators?

    I took mine to the radiator shop and he ordered it for me for $100 and some change. No hassle, radiator guys usually know exactly what to do.....
  14. Does it only leak when the tank is full? Your sending unit has a gasket that may have gone bad. I could be very wrong here but fuel tanks very rarely leak from the top because of rust. Water goes to the bottom and rusts out the bottom. Now there are experts here who may know more but this is just my thunking.
