  1. Hello, I have always been curious how one does this, especially for those who are car collectors who may have to buy someone's "baby" who left it in a barn for a while until a spouse has to sell it. I would imagine there would have to be a jump start because batteries die pretty quickly without a charge, but how do you deal with oil and so on flowing through the initial start so you don't damage the engine? What is the common sense procedure? Please help I didn't find the right solution from the internet.

  2. Car engine revving problem, need advice.

    Hello, I have a 94 Galant with about 140,000 miles on it. This past month something really weird has happened to me three times that I'm hoping so Arsians out there can clue me in on. My car normal idles at ~600rpm, put it in neutral this is where it sits or if you're stopped at a light. Well three times now when I started it up the engine starts revving. It will rev up and down between 1,100 and 1,600rpm. It will shoot up to 1,600, drop down and as soon as it hits 1,100 it shoots back up to 1,600, over and over. It does this when it's in park or neutral. If I sit in drive at a light it refuses to drop below 1,100rpm. It just randomly happens, I'll start up my car to go to eat dinner and it does it, when I'm done with dinner and go home it's fine. I've tried turning it off and then back on immediately when it happens and it still does it. I've tried revving the engine in park and that doesn't affect anything. The only thing that seems to work is time, if I let it sit for 30+ minutes, next time I start it there is a very good chance it won't happen. However, the times it has happened my car has been sitting anywhere from 30 minutes to 4 hours. Like I said it's random. Anyone have this happen to them? Anyone know why it's happening? Any advice is appreciated. Please help I didn't find the right solution from the internet. References: https://arstechnica.com/civis/viewtopic.php?t=878518 Explainer video services Thank you
  3. Any problems with used Subarus in general?

    Hello, I've had a 1997 Subaru Legacy L wagon for about 18 months now. Recently it has developed some problems. Like, smoke pouring out of the engine problems.I've found a used Subaru that I really like. (I've found that I really like Subarus.) It's a 2003 Legacy sedan, with about 57K miles on it. Ideally I'd like to get another 80-100K out of it.My mom said something that I thought made no sense at all, but I thought I'd solicit anecdote from the Lounge. She says that most people get rid of Subarus because of problems like I'm experiencing, to which my knee-jerk reaction was "That's retarded." Has anyone had problems buying used Subarus? My car was fine until about 1000 miles ago. Please help I didn't find the right solution from the internet.

  4. Hello, I have found a 1998 Subaru Outback with 95K miles on it. It is a 2.5L enginge with a 5 speend manual tranny. I like the car and I need the 4 doors and the wagon capability. AWD might not be that useful in Texas, but I don't plan on driving the car only in Texas. I currently have a 1990 Honda Accord that is looking to have some work done to it (1) timing belt 2) leaking, but not burning, oil 3) dodgy power steering) and it has served me well. It has 220K on it as well. It is also a 2 door which I find very burdensome at times especially when I could greatly use the space of a wagon or 4 doors. I test drove the Outback this past weekend and here is what I noticed:1) The engine has a meatier sound to it than the Accord because of the H4 engine2) The Accord feels much more nimble and easier to steer, but I know these two cars and totally different in design3) I can feel the engine vibration through shifter whereas the Accord is almost perfectly still when driving. THis could be because the Subaru needs a new clutch as well.4) I like the driving stance of the Outback better since it sits higher and is easier to get in and out of.So, there you go. Also, here is the ad from Auotrader.com. Asking price is $7950 which I think is ridiculous. I'm going to offer him $6000 and start from there. The car needs a new clutch and new rearbrakes well. Can someone with a Carfax account pull the report for me, please? Here is the VIN: 4S3BG6856W6641540 Finally, I have bee doing some research towards the Outback and the engine (EJ25 Phase I) in the car. Apparently, this engine is known for head gasket problems. Has anyone heard about these HG problems? Should this disuade me from purchasing the otherwise car of my dreams? Here is a link to more info about the head gasket problems. And for former and current Outback owners, how do you like them?. Please help I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
