  1. Rear trailing arm bushings...

    Gen 1: 1995-1999
    I have a loud knock in the rear and a reputable mechanic told me the front bushing on the rear trailing arm is blown. Question is: is it worth it to buy the new arm with bushing installed or just buy the new bushing and press it in? I have access to a 20 ton press and a press kit. Trying to do...

    I am looking for an ecu for my 98 OBW. My part number is 22611 AD60A. If i understand correctly it had to be an identical part. PM me know if you have one you think will work or if you know that a different part # will work.

  5. Misfire code on 3 and 4 - Please advise on repair

    Gen 1: 1995-1999
    Sound advice. I have been reading (on here at least) for as many opinions and solutions as I can find. As far as I can tell there are many problems that can lead to a misfire, so it is really a process of elimination i.e. testing components and systems to see if they are operating properly...
  6. Misfire code on 3 and 4 - Please advise on repair

    Gen 1: 1995-1999
    Thanks miker I don't think he adjusted the valves. There is a considerable amount of noise coming from the valvetrain especially on the driver side. If I do have a burned valve how much is involved with replacing it? Average cost if I have a mechanic do it? Average cost to have valves...

    My car didn't have a master key when I bought it, only the valey key, so I want to have one cut. Found this: Subaru NIB Key Blank Genuine Part OEM - eBay (item 170588015542 end time Feb-06-11 21:05:53 PST) The seller states it is for Impreza but it covers the manufacture date of my Outback...
  8. Tune up gets results!

    Problems & Maintenance
    I went ahead and took the advice of many threads I have read here and did some cleaning and maintenance. I replaced the PCV valve, cleaned the IAC valve and the EGR valve. All three were dirty. It took about an hour of casual wrenching and I noticed a difference right away on the test drive...
  9. Catalytic converters? Why are there two?

    Gen 1: 1995-1999
    Alright. Well I don't really want a WRX, not my style and the back seat is too small for babies' car seats.;) Turbo setup; I need the car to run another 100,000 without needing weekly tunes. Newer car; I bought this one 'cause it was cheap. So it sounds like some suspension upgrades will...
  10. Catalytic converters? Why are there two?

    Gen 1: 1995-1999
    Thanks dude...So there are two. OK. I am really looking at doing some upgrading if only for the really nice sound, although the horsepower is what I'm really after. (Looking for around 200hp) For anyone with experience or knowledge what is the difference between the Stromung and the Random...
  11. Another new Outback owner with noise questions (video/audio file linked)

    Problems & Maintenance
    It's really hard to tell what I am listening to on your video. There seems to a lot of background noise. I can hear high pitch whining and buzzing; sounds kind of like a bad power steering pump but I don't think that would have anything to do with your high idle problem and it probably is just...
  12. Catalytic converters? Why are there two?

    Gen 1: 1995-1999
    In response to a 0420 code I have been researching catalytic converters on this forum. There is plenty of info about how a 0420 code may not be related to actual catalyst efficiency but coule be related to a bad 02 sensor, dirty IAC or PCV and I understand that all very well and plan to take...
  13. Help deciphering P-codes

    Problems & Maintenance
    I have a recurring 0420 code. I checked with a Subaru dealer and a local mechanic familiar with Subarus and both told me the catalytic converters are probably failing, just not completely yet. The dealer quoted me $1800 to replace them and the mechanic said about $1000. The other two I have...
  14. Misfire code on 3 and 4 - Please advise on repair

    Gen 1: 1995-1999
    Just a follow up. I decided to replace the ignition coil. I pulled out the old one and used a multimeter to test the primary and secondary side. The primary tested at .8ohm and momentarily registered .9 and spec is .73+/- 10% (my meter doesn't read hundredths) and this seemed to be on the...
