Hello, I Have Searched These Forums, Numerous Times, For Numerous Issues. First Time Actually, Posting... I Have Owned 2 Subaru EA82's, And My Very First Was, A EA82T. I Have Traveled Many Miles, 4x4 Trails, Dirt Bike Trails, Cross Country, and Only Let Down A Few Times, EVER! Only, Have Had The Luxury Of Lifting One, To In Turn, See Her Go Under Ridiculous Circumstances.. Have Learned Enough With These Beasts, I Can Proudly And Confidently Say, I Can Work On Them Blind Folded! (For The Most Part, Obviously...) Anyways, Just Bought Myself A 1983 (11/82) Subaru GL Wagon, EA81, Has The 1.6L(?), 4-Spd, Dual-Range 4WD. $400 Drove It Home, Here N There, To Now Barely At All. (Over Tinkering/Diagnosing, Chasing My Tail!) Anyways, I Believe I Have Narrowed It Down To The Distributor... I Can Start The Car, Runs All Day, Full To Empty. It Goes Up And Down In RPM's, Smoothly. At Times I Can Go A Mile, Down The Road With No Issues, To 200 Ft. Where It Then, Falls Completely On It's Face... It Will Act As If It's, "Starving For Fuel" or Being "Choked Out" - I Have To Let It Die, And Then Start It Back Up, No Porblem. Just To Gamble Distance, and Repeat Again.... I Have Downloaded, Studied, And Seen Every Video To Everything Related To "Symptoms.." (To The Best Of My Knowledge...) Everyone I Have Asked For Help, or Their 2-Cents- I Might As Well, Just Asked The Car Itself! 1: Have Gone Over, and Through, Every Vacuum Front To Back. Looked At 20 Different Diagrams, For Multiple Years, (Trying To See Similarities..) 2: YES! I Have Checked, Flushed, Replaced, & Re-Checked- Fuel Pump, Fuel Filter, Fuel Vapor Emis. Crap, Fuel & Water Seperator, Side Glass On Carb. Itself, and Carb/Choke Cleaner (Tomorrow Is My #1 - SeaFoam Cleanse!) Even Ran My Own Wire From The Fuel Pump Conn. To Ign. System (Did Toggle Too...) 3: I Have Inspected, The Entire Harness From The Tailights/Trailer Plug, To The Headlights! Under The Carpet, Etc. For Janked Up Wiring. (One, Which I Replaced And Is Now My, " Fuel-Pump' Hot Wire.. Blue/Red Line.) ------‐------ As For My Determination, For "Disty.." - A: I Get Periodical Spasm/Surging(?) Activity, Through RPM' Gauge. (Wire In Wrong Spot? Vacuum Adv. Failure/Premature? Disty Play?) B: I Can Literally Hear & Feel, The Distributor Making "Noise" As The RPM Gauge Fluxuates In Seizure. - I've Adv./Retarded, New Rotor, And Checked Wire Conn. Order- Tis' Correct. -------------------- As Anyone & Everyone's Awesome, Amazing, and Reliefs Of SUCCESS!' Comments (Hopefully) Appear... I Am Doing: (Waiting On Arrival 10am For - *Wires, And Cap*) New Plugs, Wires, Cap, Rotor, Oil Change, Air Cleaner, And SEAFOAM* (I Periodically Run Premium Fuel, Anyways..) Sorry, For Alot, Thanks For Any/All Input, Info, 2-Cents, Laughs, Diss'es, Whatever... lol
