  1. unfortunately it doesn't have power to the ecm the fuse is good but no power to the ecm.
  2. the timing belt is fine. found out there is no power to the ecm. it is supposed to go to the yellow wire with the red trace and it is supposed to be 12v constant. there is power to the fuse and through the fuse but then it disappears i am trying to get the fuse box out because it splits off into two wires so somewhere in that mess a wire is bad or the junction where it splits is bad. if i apply 12v to the ecm can i test it that way? when i test it out on the engine the light is supposed to light up and flash in time with the crank but it doesn't light up.
  3. i looked in the fsm and it doesn't tell me where the ign relay is just that it is a brown connector. but i think it is ok because the igniter and coil both get power, what else does this do.
  4. the fuel pump works. how well i am not sure. i took the fuel line off and squirted it into a bucket. it last ran two yrs ago, they drove it then parked it and it wouldn't start, so they did some checking and no spark, they took the coil pack off of a running vehicle and stuck it on and still no spark and lost interest. i changed the ecm because it smelled burned, and the crank sensor because the old one had a dent in the bottom and while i was at it i changed the cam sensor and the igniter box. there is 12v to the coil and igniter and the only thing i haven't changed is the ign relay but there is power to the components. just curious about the dent on the bottom of the crank sensor. how do i check the fuel pressure and what is it suppose to be.
  5. what brand of c/v tail/prop shaft should i get? all the old places go out of business or sell out to the chinese. my car is a 87 dl wagon.

    fixed it

    someone from her church fixed the exhaust leak and a/c and she drives it more than the mini van. the mini van keeps breaking down and she won't let me work on it because i won't join her church and i am not certified. but i am certifiable. just not a mormon.

    almost got it!

    it is a bad ground wire up under the dash. i found out from the lady i bought it from her 14 yr old son got mad when mom sold the car and grabbed the wires under the dash. then threw paint on the car. if i had tried that when i was a kid i wouldn't be sitting down yet. all she did was give him a time out and sent him to his room.
  8. can you jumper the connector with a wire?

    six speed?

    does the 10 spd count if you strap it to the roof?

    damn brakes

    got everything replaced except the rotor and caliper. bought a new ball joint and ruined the dust boot trying to put it on. that and some drive axles and i can put it one the ground.

    are they the same?

    i found a book called how to keep you subaru alive and i bought the book how to keep your volkswagon alive and used it to fix my friends bus butr when he sold it he gave them the book as well.

    possible cause

    haven't got to it yet as life caught up with me. i will be working on it soon. got new brake pads, hoses new front bearings and seals now for new rotors and calipers. the old ones got red hot. remember on a 87 don't tow the car without the front drivelines.
  13. how do i check the fuel pressure on a 90 legacy wagon and what is it suppose to be?
  14. i have power to the coil and the igniter and as soon as i find my test light i will see if the test light pulses at the two outside wires at the coil. i changed the crank sensor because the bottom was dented and changed the cam sensor and the igniter as well i found out someone put a used coil in and i measured them as well the primary on no's 3 and 7 measured .9 ohms and the no's 1 and two measured .7 ohms the secondary was fine on both according to Haynes. so i think it is the coil. those wires are a pain to fish through to the connectors in the back. still no spark tho. how do i test the two sensors just look for the flash at the test light?
