Re: Starting problems

Starting Issues ? - Check list Check for spark and fuel take a plug out of the engine have it connected to lead or coilpack and sit the plug onto a good ground have some one start engine you should see a spark if not could be a coilpack problem or ignition, then take the line off the fuel filter on the outlet pipe of the filter and turn the ignition ON you'll hear the pump prime and fuel should fly out the pipe have rags good to have some one turn the key as petrol go everywhere,if fuel dont come out check the fuel pump, is it a classic impreza if so check the codes manually Scoobypedia | Trusted knowledge for everything Subaru | Knowledge / Reading ECU Fault Codes and heres the codes Scoobypedia | Trusted knowledge for everything Subaru | Knowledge / Subaru Specific Trouble Code Definitions do so at own risk
