I purchased a few sections of the "Service Manual" for the 2000 Legacy and Outback. Back then, it was an eight(?) volume set with a total price about $200 (or more).
I only bought 4 of the 8 volumes.
See if you can find it online at 1stsubaruparts.com. They also accept Subaru bucks you earn from a Subaru credit card. The bucks can be used for parts, service, or towards a new car.

On another Subaru topic it was mentioned that some Subaru turbo engines suffer from boost "stutter" that cannot be repaired or adjusted away.
Has anyone seen this in the '08 Outback? I am considering an Outback XT Limited, and would not appreciate like turbo stutter, etc. in a nearly $34 K automobile.

Honestly, I've never heard anyone complain about that.
The only stutter complaints I've heard were from the clutches on late 90s models.
The WRXs and Legacy GTs and Forester XTs I've driven were all very smooth, in fact I'd argue the turbos are a bit smoother than the normally aspirated engines.

There is a very small drop in the hp/torque curve on the turbo models, but it is in no way noticeable except on paper at the dyno shop. I don't have an issue on my unmodified 05 LGT, and none of my customer's unmodified cars either.

Alland, Thanks for the info. I checked out the site but it leaves a bit to be desired. The instructions that come with the filter don't help much either. They just aren't clear enough to give me the confidence to remove parts without breaking them.

#7327 of 8642 1998 Subaru legacy outback needs help!
Nov 29, 2007 (11:39 am)
I REALLY need someones help. I have a outback that has a lot of problems that noone seems to know how to fix or whatnot......anyways right now my car will not start. when it tries the lights flash on and off.....I am assuming that its the security system. When i bought this car from another person it did not have a manual in it nor did it comes with the black keyless entry box. Does anyone know how i can disable or reset the security so my car will start?
thanks so much.....

If the car has a factory alarm system, there should be a button located on the left side of the car, up under the dash. Pressing it should reset the system. If the car's battery was changed or the battery died, the alarm system will need to be reset. I thought the need for reset was accompanied by honking, flashing lights, etc., but have not had one with an alarm, so I cannot say for sure.

.....well i went out and looked to see if i can find some sort of button and i cant seem to see it.........although i dont know what im looking for either .....under the hood it says it has a security system so im guessing that it also has an alarm as when the battery is hooked up the lights flash on an off and the people i have mentioned this to says when the alarm system has been activated it will shut down the engine so it wont start........so i have to figure out where to reset that system......I will have another look under the dash as it could be somplace else......there has to be somwhere to reset it right? Gosh if i can get this started im getting me an manual for sure so i can figure out this dang car........thanks a lot for the reply.....
