      Dont worry about it, just tighten it as much as possible, exhaust manifolds are not as sensitive a cylinder heads

      Yes, if they are the cause of an engine misfire. The first thing to do is retrieve the trouble codes for the check engine light.

      Engine coolant sensor is likely failed. Check this with OBD scanner. retrieve the codes and post them here for translation and repair recommendations.

    Where is the camshaft position sensor
     
    • yboy82

      You can find the camshaft sensor on the side camshaft support, or in your distributor, detects the number of pulses which occur when protrusions at the back of the camshaft drive sprocket cross the sensor.

      Inspect the wiring harness for any damages. It may shorted to the chassis ground.

    ITS A 1991 SUBARU LEGACY THE SPEEDOMETER QUIT FUNCTION

      If your speedometer is cable operated you should check the speedometer cable if it is seated properly into your speedometer assembly and the speedometer drive gear.

      If your speedometer is operated electronically you should check the condition of your speed sensor pick up and the wiring between you speed sensor and the speedometer (it is possible that the terminals are loose or corroded).

      If you have a volt meter, check the voltage while the engine is running. It should be somewhere between 13 to 14.5 volts if the alternator is charging.

      to verify that the engine is seizued, remove spark plugs(remember which wire goes to which plug!!!! mark them), with helper to turn key to start position, hold your finger over the spark plug hole, as the helper turns the key the pressure from the piston going up and down should blow your finger off of the hole (be sure to stay away from the spark plug wire that is now floating in the breeze!!!!!). do this to each plug hole....if you feel no pressure, the piston is not moving , and chances are your engine is seizued.......................................jl

      What is the code number? I do not work with the description of the code because there can be several similar descriptions and I do not want to have to read each one to see which one you are asking about. What is the P # please?

      The code is p 0106

      This code is for the Manifold Absolute Pressure/Barometric Pressure (MAP/BARO) sensor. It is a 3 wire pressure sensor on the right strut tower. Look for 5V on the Brown, ground on the Blue/Black, signal on the Green/Orange. The signal should be about 4V key on engine off and 2V with manifold vacuum applied.

      Potential Causes:
      Connectors
      Harness
      MAP Sensor

      Check the filler neck on the gas tank. They rot out on Subaru. Also, you can check for a stored fault code in the EVAP system. If there is one it virtually assures that the cause is the filler neck.
