1992 Subaru Loyale Repair Question
Subaru Loyale Engine Problem
Oil's full and clean and recently changed, coolant's full, no immediately visible cracks/breaks under car (axles) or under hood. Engine oil appears to be the only leak (mechanic diagnosed as typical old Subaru head gasket leak.) Different mechanic fixed minor coolant hose leak 1 month ago & assessed vehicle as A-ok.
If the noise is a crocking type while turning, that would most probably be due to bad CV joints.
As to the loss of power during acceleration, does the rpm shoot up while it fails to accelerate (clutch slipping) or the engine responded slow, (possibly fuel pressure, MAF or throttle position related)?
REar end fistailing could be due to weak struts or worn suspension bushes.
Noises during idling should be engine related and drive belt replacement might solve the problem if they are the cause.
