Re: In need of a Throttle Position Sensor

Before buying anything else to fix it, I decided to cut open and clean the sensor. After spraying off the contacts with mass airflow sensor cleaner and bending out the contact arms slightly, I...

Re: In need of a Throttle Position Sensor

I actually contacted this seller before posting here. They are not available from them anymore, so that won't work. I am considering opening up mine and seeing if I can fix it with my dad's help, as...

Re: I have a mystery oil leak. Anyone have an idea what it is?

So I spent the other afternoon retightening everything. Leak is still there. Looks like I'll spend an afternoon reinstalling all the gaskets.

I did have to use some silicone rubber to hold the gasket in place on the cover while I installed it, so I am familiar with that. As far as I can tell everything on the gaskets themselves are seal...

Re: I have a mystery oil leak. Anyone have an idea what it is?

I didn't use OEM gaskets, but the kit I used fit well and was the silicone rubber type. It did come with new bolt seals. From what you're saying, I definitely did tighten them down too much. I will...

Re: Radiator Cracked

If you're too cheap/can't afford one, the fix I found that has worked for 8+ months was to use JBWeld waterweld. Made for pools/hot tubs, but is actually rated higher temperature wise than JBWelds...

Re: Is A/C compressor servicable?

I don't know as much as the other members here, but the ac compressor does not have an expanded view in the service manual (unlike the PS pump) and therefore I would guess you can't get Subaru parts...

Re: Footwell lights constantly on, need help
