I bought a used 1985 Subaru GL wagon a week or so ago. The engine is a 1.8L, it's 2WD, and has a standard tranny. The mileage is very high, almost 215,000 miles. It runs great in town most of the time, but I discovered a fatal flaw. Every now and then, it will chug when accelerating. I was told the choke was sticking, but it is very random. Now I have found that on the highway, it maxes out at 60 mph. If you push it and floor it, it seems to lose fuel and chug and buck. The fuel filter and pump were just replaced before I bought it. Could it be spark plugs?
have the same problem?
