The P0420 code had cleared...

It does not appear to have been running rich, but to be fair I haven't pulled a plug to look at it. Fuel economy is...

I've replaced the after-cat sensor and with close to 200K on it I imagine the cats are done.

I have successfully faked out the ECU on my Chevy S-10 with a spark plug anti-fouler. Tried it on our...

I found a set at Auto Parts...

I swapped the cap off the junkyard pump today. While I had the original pump out and laying on a board before taking the broken cap off, I noticed that gas was dripping out from between the junction...

Yeah, not sure on material compatibility. If I was the primary driver I would be a lot more open to experimentation but you know that when momma is unhappy, everybody is unhappy and not having her...

It does, and that might work! I think a single one would be sufficient.

I was also considering TIG welding up the crack, but I'd prefer not to since that's going to compromise the cad plating and...

Just as a followup...

Car still runs great and has all the power it should, but does not start immediately if it has been sitting off for a while. I had my wife try turning the key on and off a...

I was unable to find any in stock at local auto parts stores and had to get one from a Subaru dealer at about twice the cost of Rock Auto.

So I take it the only way to get a replacement cap is to cannibalize another pump?

If so, is the cap on a 4-cylinder the same as the cap on the pump on an H6?

Symptoms of fuel pump O-ring problem?

Our '02 H-6 Outback suddenly started running poorly tonight - it runs fine at idle and up to 1/8 to 1/4 throttle, but as soon as you ask for more power it just falls on its face. If you can get it to...

We bought an '02 LL Bean wagon last week. Love it! It was a replacement for my wife's '04 Legacy sedan. I don't think I'll ever go back to a 4 cylinder Subaru after having this wagon. I like it so...
