subaru engine problems
[/size]size=medium]
I own 2 subaru legecy wagons a 1994 & 1996 both have the same problem they lose power climbing a hill of any height, it even cuts out when we are just driving by giving it gas. I have had the dealers look at it they charged me 2,800.00, for the 1994 and it still does the same thing , the 1996 had the heads redone, and all new parts including o2 senor and fuel senor fuel injectors, and still they both act the same way, the check engine light comes on , and off to the shop it goes,but still after thousands of dollars my problem is still unsolved.I can only tell you what it acts like its starved for fuel are air, but it goes though it s thing , and all the sudden its back to running like a dream. i wondered if the catalytic convertor is partially blocked , but no caes to hear my view. can any one help me?

What size engine? If the check engine light is coming on on the 96 model, have the codes checked. That would help. Some part stores will do it for free. I code # will help.

RE: subaru engine problems
I have a sub legacy also, 1995. We are having problems with losing speed up hills too. Had a lot of new parts put on. Now I hear a knocking noise when I am coming to a stop. Also hear a clicking when needing to change gears. Mechanic said clutch looks good. Wondering if part of my problem is a loose heat sensor, what i was told. Not sure about it all though. Any thoughts?

RE: subaru engine problems
csslaw02,
What is a heat sensor? Are you referring to a heated O2 sensor? What about fuel pressure and filter? Have those been checked?
