Why does the 98 subaru impreza outback overheat?
You may need to replace the radiator thermostat and gasket.
cost me about 180 bucks a year ago in colorado, if that helps
I have a 2002 Subaru Impreza Outback and it have the thermostat on the right bellow the engine. You can fallow the hose from the radiator that goes to the bottom of the engine.
The Second Generation Legacy Outback hood will fit on a Second Generation Impreza Outback, but you have to cut or grind the sides down a little (less than a half inch on either side). You might have to reposition the hood hinges too. I know because I just test fitted a 99 Impreza Outback hood on a 98 Legacy Outback and it was too narrow by less than an inch.
There is no reset button. Disconnect the battery for a few hours, then reconnect and the computer's memory will be erased. You'll have to reprogram your radio setting.
on my 98 outback impreza sport: under the hood, flip open the fuse box, check diagram on underside of lid, match up with outlay of fuses. Slip a 15A fuse into the slot designated "FWD". This will disengage the AWD, and FWD should show up on on your driver side dashboard. Hope that helps!
No, thanks. Done it, didn't enjoy it.

The spark plug gap for a 1998 Subaru Impreza/Legacy with the 2.5L DOHC engine is .044".
My 98 impreza just pumps from the front washer tank to the back
It depends on what is wrong with it. We need more info please.
The hazard flasher activation button has been depressed.
That depends entirely on what happened to it to make it need repairing.
Sorry, but it won't. Subaru's changed their headlight shape every 3 years or so. They made a change around April 1997, so the one's before that are different from the ones after.
Why would a 98 subaru legacy outback blow cold air and overheat after installing new water pump and radiator?
Classic "air bound". Start engine, leave off rad cap, turn heater all the way up, open plastic vent on opposite side of radiator, and slowly fill with coolant.
They are different gear ratios. Outback turns 3100 @ 65 while the Forester turns about 2700. I'm currently running this combo and have about 4-5k on it expecting viscous coupling to go when I need it the least, then I go nowhere and I'm on as unmaintained road in the Colorado Rocky's so I'm looking for the correct answer as well.
The Subaru 2.5 L engine is a non-interference engine. If you change the timing belt when it should be changed you don't need to worry either way.
Looking at the top of the motor remove the air intake and it is below the butterfly on the drivers side top end of the motor.
these had a head gasket problem - the escaping gas forces coolant out of the engine into the bottle, resulting in overheating. Replacing the radiator cap can help, but not fix, the problem - as will not accelerating hard. Also, it might be the thermostat My '98 outback had an ongoing overheating problem. It would over heat then take the radiator cap off, and the car would be good. It was undetected by pressure testing… Read More
The speed sensor on a 98 Impreza is on the gear box. it is on the driver's side under the bulkhead.
58 to 72 lb-ft (78 to 98 N*m) as per page 9-10 of the "OWNER'S MANUAL".....
The starter is located on the right hand side of the engine near the bottom. You can follow the positive battery cable from the battery to the starter.
EJ22E (2.2L): 6.2 US qt (5.8 liter) EJ25D (2.5L): 6.3 US qt (6.0 liter).....
I don't know, I trew mine out. My wife's grandpa didn't have a cabin filter in his car and died at the ripe age of 98.....
A quick Internet search revealed the following for all cars: P1400 Heated Catalyst Battery Voltage or Current too Low During Heating (Bank 1) For a Subaru, the code actually means: Fuel Tank Pressure Control Solenoid Circuit Low Input The previous code definition is not specific to Subaru. It seems specific to BMW based on the print out I received from AutoZone when they read the code on my 98 Impreza.
How do you reset computer on a 98 Subaru Lagacy outback after disconnecting battery interior and hazord lights are flashing?
I believe you just lock and unlock it using the keyless entry, if available. If not, try the power locks.
If you have a carburetor on a 98 subaru, I'd like to see it.
Remove Glove Box & Access Panel. Disconnect Blower Motor Electrical Plug & Aspirator Hose. Remove screws & Motor. Install in reverse order.....
The 15 Amp Fuse is the second from bottom on the right hand side of the Engine Compartment Fuse Box. (As per page 11-9 of the Owner's Manual).
Remove one battery terminal and touch it to the other to discharge capacitors in the system. Reconnect the terminal and you are good to go. Don't forget to clean the terminal while you have it off.

What about it?
Yes, Reese Hitch lists a CLASS 2 hitch Part # 06020. The fram has to be drilled and there may need to be some modification to the muffler/tail pipe heat shield.
Foresters (especially 1st Gens, 98-02) are known for poor fuel economy. They are AWD, which means the engine is turning twice as many wheels as on most cars. This accounts for some higher fuel consumption. Another reason is the vehicle's poor aerodynamic coefficient. The Forester is basically identical to an Impreza, but the 98 Impreza is rated at 21 mpg, while the Forester is rated at only 20 mpg. That's 5% lower just due to… Read More
How much a head gasket repair for a Subaru Outback should cost Should all gaskets be changed at the same time your mechanic thinks just one is gone?
I suppose that will depend on the going rate your way, my own '98 outback wagon blew both gaskets and i took it to the dealer to get it fixed. 1600$ later i got it back.
probably because you need new oil and Durango's are known to overheat.
its under the air intake. its hard to miss. you dont have to take the intake off to see it either. And i believe its a 10mm bolt, simple. Go to http://www.lovehorsepower.com/SubaruDocs/subaru_legacy_knock_sensor.htm there you will find photos on how to remove and reinstall the knock sensor
How do you replace the spark plugs on a 98 Subaru Impreza 2.5 - What size ratchet should you use to get out the old spark plugs?
any size that works usually a 3/8th ratchet You probably meant what size socket Its either 5/8th if the plugs are small or 13/16th if they are big
yes, I just put a 1997 2.5 liter engine in a 1998
It's not possible.
Timing is done by Engine computer with imfo from cam and crank sensor . It is not adjustable. If you are replacing timing belt, a Gates timing belt comes with detailed instructions of belt and pulley timing marks. New belt has marks on it that correspond with cam shaft pulleys and crank pulley.
bad water pump or thermostat. check both.
Mounted on top and inside the fuel tank.
How do you fix a subaru impreza 98 heater because i had the clever idea to take my dash out and paint it and now the blowers dont work it engages something but no wind please help winter is immenant?
The only suggestion I have for you is to double your work and take the dash out again. Make sure you reconnect everything the way it was before you painted it. Your problem sounds like you didnt connect a cable or vacuum line

I have been driving my 98 legacy L (300k miles) for several months in fwd because a mismatch in rear tire diameter from different aged tires of the same spec caused parking lot grabbing in tight turns. Runs smoothly now. Can I drive like this year round except for the snowy season? Several friends want to do the same with similar subaru awd wagons, but are newer and with less miles than me.
Our 98 subaru outback started screeching and grinding while turning when the fluid got low enough which was the first clue. Open the reservoir, and fluid was low. The fluid gets everything around the power steering pump wet, and pools on the engine beneath the pump. The pump is on top of the front passenger side of the engine. Eventually the leaked fluid spills from the engine onto the exhaust which makes for some bad… Read More
me and a friend recently encountered this while changing the water pump in my 98 outback legacy wagon and the way to remove it is to remove the belts then remove the bolt from the wheel and this will take two people one to hold the gear still under the car, and another to turn the ratchet with a cheater bar, after you remove the bolt just rock it forward and should come off with… Read More
