Asked by lorettamarie Jun 18, 2013 at 11:45 PM about the 1996 Subaru Legacy 4 Dr Outback AWD Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 96 Subaru outback legacy, automatic, 2.8 engine. My car has been driving fine, until recently it will drive for a while then start to die high speeds but mainly lower speeds. thought it was the fuel pump. Replaced that with a filter, cleaned carburetor, EGR valve, new spark, clean battery terminals, new throttle position sensor, and new catalytic converters. ( most things done here where shown on a check engine light)  there is no check engine light anymore, but my car will run fine for a couple days then starts to do this. I only put in premium gas and quality oil.   any suggestions? I also have had the rear tranny work and a new tranny gasket put on it December from a Subaru mechanic. any suggestions??

actually its a 2.5L. don't know what I was thinking. I have taken it to two mechanics no one can figure it out. was told I needed a new alternator. put a new one on, still does it. tired of buying new parts and putting them on and still not working right. exhausting and expensive!! I hate Subarus...
