... 2000 Subaru Legacy

I have a 2001 Subaru Forester. When I turn the A/C on, the cars squeal loudly at idle and at slower speeds. At higher speeds 40 MPH, the squeal stops. The A/C works fine. Additionally, when the temp outside is very high in summer, the squealing seems worse. Turning off the A/C makes the squealing sound stop. What could be wrong?


You have a loose belt on the A/C. On most new cars that is one big belt that drives everything on the car. If when you look at the belt on the grooved side, do you see cracks on the grooved part running across (from side to side) on the belt? if s ... 2004 Subaru Forester

I have replace the relay switch for the fan 3 times, As long as the vehicle is moving the motor stays cool but as soon as the vehicle idles for more then 5 minutes it starts to overheat and fast! There is a squealing noise coming from the motor when the temp gage gets to 200* what could this be?

Hi. I own a 1986 Subaru GL hatchback with 172k, non-turbo, CB ,4x4, engine code 7,w/a/c, no p/s, and in almost perfect condition, but recently about a week ago for some odd reason the RPM guage goes crazy while at idle or accelerating and does'nt read the correct RPM but rather jumps around where the RPM should be, and while this is happening the motor pings and bogs down and basically is very hard to accelerate. It feels as if the spark is not being delivered correctly. I also just replaced th

I'm not sure if any of you got my question because I had forgotten my password but I am hearing a squealing sound or maybe a roaring sound on my motor. When its just sitting there idling it isn't that loud but if you drive it then the more speed that I generate then the louder the noise gets. I changed out the Alternator because I assumed the barrings where going out in it and its still making that same noise. I also checked the idler pulley but it seemed fine. Could you please help me and offer

I have a 2001 Subaru Legacy. It has been chugging at highway speeds and frome dead stops. I've changed the plugs and the motor seems to run fine except for a slight hesitation at idle. Once the car is revved up it smooths out and a few minutes later it will start again. It threw some codes such as the downstream O2 sensor and the knock sensor and the thermostat as well. I changed the thermostat and no are showing right now. The car still chugs though. Any Ideas?

I rebuilt a Z24 motor and had a shop assemble the long block. I installed all brand new parts, oil pump, water pump, cap and rotor, spark plugs, wires, clutch, headers and a cam which was regrinded by Schneider, I'm having problems with the timing. I can't get the motor to idle. I used the stock carb and got it to idle but once you press the gas, the truck won't idle again. I drove it but only went 65mph. I changed the carb to a 32/36 and still can't get it to idle. Mind you this motor was opera

1986 Toyota MR2 takes a long crank to start. To much gas pedal and it will not start. Runs sluggish at idle. When warm and idling the motor seems to load up and will die unless the gas pedal is pushed a little. From slow the motor hesitates, runs with little power until the rpm's are up a little. Then the motor seems to clear out and runs strong until driving slow or idling again.

Driving on the highway with the AC on then it started blowing hot air. Drove down the highway and when exiting the highway and high speed driving, the car kept trying to stall, had to keep my foot down on the accelerator pedal.

Kia Optima I just replaved my timing belt, oil pump belt, crank senser, map senser, R & R senser. The timing belt was not broke but did have a few missing teeth. It will start and run just fine on a cold motor. After the motor warms up it has a rough idle, low idle, and will eventually die without keeping the idle up with my foot on the gas pedal. It will surge on highway speeds, most climbing hills. It also has developed a vibration while accelerating. Jump before it shifts into a higher gear.


Is the car flashing any codes. I would look for fuel issues possibly fuel filter, injectors etc. Because these items are easier to check. Otherwise it sounds as if the timing is off on the car. If the Hydraulic tensioner is not replaced this coul ... 2004 Kia Optima
