I was just generalizing haha, fuel filters don't cost much anyway.Yea good call
I thought fuel filter was a once every 30k miles thing tho?
Good news, I downloaded the entire service manual for 2004 Sti and saved it to my computer so I can never lose it.
willub was right, he meant odb2 portWhat is he referring to by "DLC plus"? Why did the previous owner decide to rip the gauge cluster out? If the gauge harness is still OK, then maybe you can just source the same harness connectors and solder or crimp it into the existing harness.
A PS leak is dangerous as it can cause fires or make you lose steering, that's probably the biggest thing to fix right now.
Missing the fan fuse? huh? He probably used that fuse to replace a blown fuse on another circuit.
Lots of small stuff but at least no seriously major issues.
I read that subaru uses different design for Cv joint that aftermarket companies don't use and they don't hold up as well..I imagine he's referring to the obd2 port where he says dlc. My AP and obd2 port don't get along very well either. Pretty sure the problem on mine is just the dongle thing from Cobb.
As far as the front axle goes, I just bought a 50 dollar one from rockauto. I have yet to install it but I don't think I'll have any issues. I think oem ones are 3-400 bucks. No thanks.
Is this an early production 04? Is the fuel filter in the engine bay or part of the fuel pump assembly? Mine is a mid year 04, so the fuel filter is part of the pump assembly. 140k miles on mine and it's the original, though I plan on replacing it. Early 04's had the filter in the engine bay, which is supposed to be replaced every 30k. Subaru doesn't specify on the in-tank filter.
Good to see your overheating issue was something simple
yup...Eh a bad obd2 port would be very annoying. :/
Haha, at least you have the right thinking about being optimistic.
yea she seems to have a strong heart from what I've seen/experienced... she deff pulls hard IMOLooks like the car might have a pretty strong heart, so once you work out the peripheral issues, it could still be a very enjoyable car. hmmm... 48 hours of ti-state?
Thank you! I hope I can do her some justice.Congratulations! Glad to see it go to someone who wants to restore it to its former glory.
Oh and is this rear diff clunk occurring when you engage the clutch or shortly after? If so, I bet it's the bushings. I changed the fluid in mine hoping to fix it but it didn't. Companies make bushings specifically for that clunk. I think I used the perrin bushings.
