montanaboy27 posted a topic in 1990 to Present Legacy, Impreza, Outback, Forester, Baja, WRX&WrxSTI, SVXHey All! Newb poster here, so go easy. So after buying this '97 OBW from the one that shall from here until eternity be referred to as, "The Lying Sap Sucking Puke", I have pulled the motor and replaced the head gaskets and everything else that you do with the motor out. Fast forward to this week... after test driving for the first time I discover it has a sever case of "torque bind".... sooo I go to the stealer and buy a new duty 'C' solenoid... I think no big deal... that is until I get to the point at which I need to rotate the drive line to unbolt it... I am able to get 3 out of the 4 bolts... I go and put the trans in neutral and climb back under... go to rotate the drive line and nada... won't turn but maybe a few degrees.... tried shifting through the range a few times thinking it may be "stuck" or something and still no joy.... I am at a loss and I refuse to lose to this beast! The only other thought that I have had is to jack up a rear tire and see if I can get the stupid thing to spin. Thoughts? At this point I yield to the Great Subaru Kings of yesteryear that have more experience than I in the ways of the mechanical realm. Thank you in advance!! MT
subynut posted a topic in Old Gen.: 80's GL/DL/XT/Loyales...The PandaWagon has developed this low frequency vibration below 15 MPH. It's most noticeable under acceleration, but if you push the clutch in and let it roll, you can still feel it. Kinda a thump thump thump kind of sound in the floorboards. Doesn't matter the gear. Once I'm above 15, it's smooth not one hint of vibration- even over 80. Last time I had it out, I went on about a 200 mile drive. It was fine till about half way through the drive and it showed up again and as I worked my way home, the shake was getting really bad. At one point, the shake was rattling something up front - a dull metallic sound. Again, only below 15 MPH. I've always had a ever slight vibration from the rear on take off for the last 10K miles. Especially when loaded. I figured it was the rear LSD. Well, it's gotten really bad in the last 3 or 4 weeks. All the axles have no bad boots and are quiet. I've felt the drive shaft - no play in the u-joints. I've been searching around looking for similar symptoms. So far, this is what I need to look at: Axles Drive Shaft Rear Diff Transmission? (btw it's a FT4WD 5 speed) Engine/Trans Mounts Rear Diff mounts? Wheel bearings have no play Trans is about a half quart down, could that cause it? I'll be topping that off shortly. I'm planning on changing the fluid in the rear diff, if that makes no difference, then I'll drop the driveshaft and check if there is a seized u-joint. The engine mounts are good, not sure on the trans mounts though. From reading some of the other threads around here, it could be a DOJ. I can try swapping sides to see if that makes any difference. But it's still there when power is not applied, so.....maybe not? anything else I should check? Thanks
So I just bought a '92 Loyale wagon and I realized I don't know something rather pertinent: is this car front-wheel driven or rear-wheel driven when the 4WD is disengaged? I haven't had much of a chance to test it out, and I don't have a lift to put it up and check (I know, major oversight on my part) so please forgive the noob-level ignorance. Thanks!
