Greetings Soobie community, you may be wondering why the title? Well, it's because my '86 with over 300k miles has been a no nonsense car for me for over 27 years. The '96, not so much. Briefly, I rescued the '96 with 165k miles and it obviously had little to no maintenance. I have put 30k miles on it. I knew I had my work cut out for me but, Subaru in the midwest is the proper commuter. My '86 is disintegrating as we speak and the '96 was bought from a no salt state. That being said, I skip forward to my present issue: Low idle and absolutely no accel. Merely touching the throttle results in bucking, a fart and death. I won't bore you with what I've done, so your ideas, even tho they may be repeats, will be greatly appreciated. This all started when I let the car sit about a month and the battery croaked within that month. Latest fix, fuel pressure regulator DID have fuel on the vacuum side so that was changed. Thank You.
