  1. 1998 OBW, 5MT 251/25D Hi all, looking to test my TPS. Been getting some misfires, and when hooked up to an OBD II reader, the TPS position is not the most consistent when giving values, as well as it never achieves 100% when I put the pedal to the floor. I've gone through three FSM versions so far, and the instructions say to use the ECM. Cool. I have the ECM out and exposed. Problem is that none of the connector options given B84, No. 24 & 25, or No. 20 & 6 connectors will give me what I want. Either 25, or No. 6 don't even have wires going to them. I'm trying to diagnose a few problems, from another post. Following the FSM diagnostics page as best as I can, and would like to test things before just spending money to replace. And say I did replace the TPS, how would I adjust it? Is there a place to get a FSM that is tied to my VIN? Does subaru provide/sell such things? Thanks for your time, Greg
  2. Hello everyone, new to the forum. I have searched around a bit but could not find the info I was looking for. I have a 1990 loyale that hasn't run in quite a while. Over that time rabbits had rotten under the hood and eaten a bit of its wiring. I recently got it started and have replaced most of the eaten wires. However all 4 of the throttle position senor wires connecting to the harness are gone. Would anyone be able to get a picture of the orientation of those wires into the tps? I have been able to find 3 pin versions all over but not the 4 pin which I believe is a later model part. Thank you for your time.
  3. Hi everyone - I'm new here. I have been having ongoing problems starting my 1992 Loyale and it has been diagnosed as needing to have replaced the idle air control valve and/or the throttle position sensor. The repair shop has notified me that they are having trouble finding the parts anywhere. Does anyone know where we might be able to locate them?
  4. 2003 Forester XS, 125,000 miles...for the last few weeks, it was wandering around its idle speed, difficult to start, finally threw the TPS code, so I swapped it out, and while I was there, changed the PCV, since I have no idea when it was last changed. Upon starting it up afterwards, I couldn't get the idle under 1200 rpm...adjusted TPS, adjusted bolts on throttle cable, no help. On test driving it, it would wind itself up to well over 3000 rpm before shifting, and it shifted very hard...on shifting 2-3, it took it almost to 4000 rpm, and again a hard shift. Now its displaying P0122, which is also a TPS code, and the TCM is flashing me 31 and 45 codes, for the TPS and the intake manifold pressure. I swear, I didn't touch anything...what the hell happened?
  5. Hey Subers, My 1993 Legacy LS was running great until I tried to start it yesterday. It turns over fine, but behaves like it's not getting any gas or spark. I checked both of those possible causes and those systems seem to be working fine. The timing belt only has about 10,000 miles on it and as the engine turns over it doesn't cough or sputter or make any obvious timing belt related noises. I checked the timing as it was turning over and #1 is firing at about 12 BTDC, though I 'm not sure that means anything for an engine that isn't running. I checked the engine code and got #31 (faulty throttle position sensor) - not a cheap thing to replace. So, is it possible that the the car would run fine one day and all of a sudden the TPS is bad the next? If that's possible, could it cause the car to not start? I haven't tested the TPS yet because I cleverly destroyed my multi-meter by not paying attention to what I was doing last time I used it.
  6. Does anyone know which wire color is which? I need to find my wiring problem. I would guess Black is power, which I believe should be 5V? Past that I am guessing. Once TPS plug is removed finding live and ground should be easy; do I need to worry about finding the signal wire (0.2V right?) (other than inspecting all the wiring for wear). If I am lucky There will be some worn insulation so the fix will be easy. Otherwise I need to find a bad ground I am guessing? Should any one have a diagnostics procedure or flow chart I would be REALLY grateful. Thanks again! Note Throttle position sensor has already been replaced, this is no longer intermittant and occors most days at start up.
