  1. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    2008 2.5l manual transmission, 115k miles. My car's air conditioning stopped working intermittently last month. Luckily we don't get many hot days so I usually only use it on road trips, but now it seems to have failed completely and when I turn the AC on a terrible squeal occurs coming from...

    I mostly love my 2020 Outback Premium, but after multiple trips to the dealership, I've accepted that I have to live with a not-cold-enough AC until I can upgrade to a newer vehicle. I'm very interested in the Solterra but I haven't had a chance to drive one yet, so no idea if I'll like it. I...

    So the symptoms are the fans do not engage under any circumstance. Under load with AC compressor, I hear the compressor engage at idle, then disengage because the fans don't respond. I do get AC while in motion. Car will run hot in motion. OBD reads temp, so I'm assuming the coolant temp sensor...

    Hello wise people of the forum! I have a 2020 XT Touring with 10k miles and now that summer is finally here I find myself disappointed with the AC. I bought new and due to the pandemic I barely drove the car the first two years. Now I am using it more and the AC is underwhelming. It definitely...

    Hello, When I purchased my certified 2017 Outback 3.6R Touring, the salesman told me it was a bit more expensive than similar vehicles for sales up north (I live in Texas) because Subaru puts a more powerful AC in vehicles it sells in the south. Has anyone ever heard this before and know if...

    I have a 2002 H6 3.0 LLBean with 160K. The air conditioning has blown cold for the three years I've owned the car, but recently it will stop working seemingly randomly and blow warm air. After letting it sit overnight, the A/C will blow cold again, but it's become more often that it conks out. I...

    2019 3.6R, 12.5k miles Independent service place did a/c check back in April and found it wasn't cooling as it should, warmer by 3-4 degrees. Life intervened but now I'm going into dealer on Thursday. After reading other threads here about how a/c diagnosis can take several attempts, I'm...

    2013 Subaru Outback 2.5L Limited A few notes; this is my wife's car mostly so I get a lot of second hand knowledge. However, one particularly hot day in TX, I noticed the AC only worked when we were driving. If we were stopped or slowly moving, the car would stop blowing cold air. Generally...

    Hey everyone, as the weather is getting warmer I’ve started to turn the AC on but have noticed that even after 20-30 mins of driving it doesn’t blow very cold. A few notes; this is my first warm season with the Outback, outside temp is roughly 20 degrees C (68 F), have it turned to the lowest...

    Okay, I know there is a simple fix to this, but when I turn my A/C off and the fan is off, I still have cold air blowing through the vents. I know I can close down the side vents, but I should be able to stop all air from blowing through the vent, right? Thanks!

    I've just acquired a high mileage 2001 2.5 liter Outback. I am thinking of getting rid of the AC system to open space under the hood and reduce complexity. I live at a high latitude and, global warming not withstanding, AC is a bit of an oxymoron here. What is involved in this? I am assuming...
