vaidas1230 posted a topic in 1990 to Present Legacy, Impreza, Outback, Forester, Baja, WRX&WrxSTI, SVXWhen i started the car and drove it i noticed that speedometer, tachometer, windows turn signals did not work and after 20 min battery run out. before the drive I tried to change knock sensor but unsuccessfully because couldn't unbolt it so just let it be for a day, then i changed headlights for the new aftermarket angel eyes and then I started the trip. All the fuses look fine so don't know what the problem is. Maybe some wires are damaged, maybe alternator( but the day before it was working great and it would't explain the speedometer). if someone had the same problem pleas help
Would like to hear any experiences and thoughts on owning a 2000 ( or similiar) Subaru Impreza RX Manual Non-Turbo? Found one with about 223,200 kilometres on it for $5000, modded with wrx spoiler,rims, bridgestone tyres and twin tip muffler I know absolutely nothing so the more information, the better would like to learn about the engine, clutch, how reliable etc etc just tell me anything, just enthusiastic to absorb any information . Will be using this as a daily- highway driving- thoughts?
Bradleysf5trinidad posted a topic in 1990 to Present Legacy, Impreza, Outback, Forester, Baja, WRX&WrxSTI, SVXHello and thank you in advance for all of your help and suggestions. I've bought an old sf5 that's been swapped and had a host of problems that i've been trying to sort out on my own. The car hasn't had a good life and it shows. 2 years ago its been swapped with a gc8 wrx motor mated to a type ra 4.44 close ratio box and differential. It works for the most part but it's never had a working speedo. Lots of other things work. It's got rpms, temp, fuel, outside temp. It has no check engine light and the obd port has no power to it. My issue is that it gets speed cut. The gear box has the three wire speed sensor, I've got a manual forester gauge cluster and manual forester 4W 3 plug ecu. I need help fixing the speedcut. i would like to wire the speed sensor directly to where the signal needs to go. I've tried sending the speed sensor signal to the ecu and it has no effect. also tried a different ecu because i had that option and it didn't work either. I've tested the speed sensor output and the sensor works well, the issue is the correct wiring of the speed signal to supposedly the gauge cluster. In trinidad we get international versions of japanese cars as well as roll on roll off jdm versions. I believe this car is an international version that was a automatic when stock.
After doing some searching myself, I find that there's some good info out there among the Subie sites on swapping newer Suspension components into older Subies. I'm looking to swap out my city beaten 98 GF8 suspension, so I've done some info gathering and have come up with a pool of useful links for your typical GC8 or GF8 swaps. Maybe you'd like a lift for trail trekking, nab some Fozzie struts (Forester). Most Subie compents will bolt up, if not with some coaxing. I'd like to hear from some members that have done these kinds of swaps themselves, on what worked out for them and what didn't. Ideally, I'd appreciate a first hand account of the work and end result. http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/showpost.php?p=18820009&postcount=7 General info on modifying the suspension on 93-2001 Impreza's of all trims Which came from this "will this suspension part fit my x Subaru?" http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/showthread.php?p=18820009#post18820009 http://www.ultimatesubaru.org/forum/topic/118004-the-unofficial-how-to-lift-your-impreza-thread/ the-unofficial-how-to-lift-your-impreza-thread http://www.rs25.com/forums/f105/t70898-diy-strut-spring-install-pics.html diy-strut-spring-install http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1589951 Assembling front strut http://bbs.legacycentral.org/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=45743 Info on Legacy strut top hats and springs, needed to fit GD WRX rear struts into a GC8/GF8 (at least that's one route) http://www.rs25.com/forums/f9/t109573-forester-struts-impreza-gc8.html forester-struts-impreza-gc8 http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2279833 What USDM Springs/Struts Will Fit a JDM '94 GC8? http://www.rs25.com/forums/f24/t96397-04-wrx-suspension-into-gf8.html http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1980173 GD suspension on a GC http://www.rs25.com/forums/f9/t200479-02-wrx-front-struts-l-rear.html Saggy rear, wrx front struts and stock rear struts http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1429052 Trailing link install tutorial
