Having problems with your 1999 Subaru Forester ?
My 1999 forester had been sitting for 1 year.it ran fine when parked,now it starts but wouldnt keep running.i unhooked fuel line and turned on ignition fuel comes out for 3 to 4 seconds then quits.a dealer parts man told me the pumps hardly ever go out.could it be fuel relay or senser,and where are they.thanks
I had the same problem with my 1998 forester and it was my alternator and very easy to fix just when you go to take it off make sure your battery is disconnected and make sure that your belt is on all pulleys but battery has to be disconnected or will trip your starter relay and will not start after that
The fuel should only come out for a 3-4 seconds that is because the pump shuts of due to no resistance (safety reasons) the ECM thinks the fuel line has leaked and cuts off the fuel. But -----the question is that your vehicle shuts off on its on I would change the spark plugs, wires, air filter and fuel filter and then you should be fine.
