Try running a good fuel system cleaner through a tank of gas. I like Seafoam and Chevron with Techron. A new fuel filter might also be in order.

Full_of_Regrets, Thank you! I'll try it.


Yes, I'l bet the inline filter is getting clogged as its dirt load shifts over time and pressure to occlude its outlet. Easy cheap remedy...if it works. Maybe an intermittent coil pack too. 1994...oy...whaddaya doing buying a 21 yr old Subie. Up north we toss them after 15 years max.

TheSubaruGuruBoston, thank you. Where in the car is the inline filter located? Do you know the part #?
