#1 of 1 Car won't start / check engine light flashing rapidly
Feb 01, 2012 (4:34 pm)
1996 Subaru legacy L won’t start. Recently the battery kept dyeing so tested the battery (was fine) and changed the terminal. The battery still would hold the charge so I change the alternator. The car still wouldn’t start- no crank, nothing. I taped the starter with a hammer and it finally started to crank- so I replaced the starter. The car still won’t start. Just had a tune up recently but I checked the plugs anyway and got a spark. Next I tried some carbonator cleaner in the engine now the car finally started up ran for 30- sec then died. So then went on to test the gas filter. Gas is coming in to and out. I trie tapping the gas tank then starting it – that didn’t work either. Now it’s not cranking anymore and when I turn the key to the on position the check engine light is flashing rapidly. What do I do now? please help!
