Gidday.....again, have a 2006 bp5 stock standard legacy auto, having trouble when the car is cold. When started from overnight the car starts good, but idles at bout 2000rmp, then after 5 seconds it drops to 800 then up to 1500rpm then the engine shakes the car considerably, and when driven like this has no power, have put new spark plugs in it OEM ones, cleaned the maf, unsure where else to look. When warm drives great and idles steady. Sorry for the long novel here but any help would be appreciated, cheers rick
Hoping for some advice. The drivers side wing mirror on my Subaru Legacy RS 30 has become loose. It needs to be fixed to get a WOF, but service centre has suggested removing it and replacing with a second hand one at a cost of around $400 - I don't care if the folding mechanism doesn't work anymore so was thinking about trying to fix myself.
The video above shows the issue. Does anyone have any recommendations on how to approach, if at all? I was considering even something as simple as superglue through to removing it and trying to jam something inside it.
Havnt done much other than gas in and drive it places
Logbook arrived from MSNZ this week so I'm gunna head up the Bay with a few others & enter the Hawke's Bay Car Club MOtorkhana & Auto-X this weekend

She also ticked over 250,000 at last fuelup
On my black face set of Lamco gauges, mine is oil temp. I can't say I have ever seen one measuring air temp before. What range of tempratures does yours read? If its the same range as wabbits ones that seems very low for oil
I should have the guide i used to install mine somewhere on my other pc. What kind of wiring are you missing? Usually theyre like this..
And that installs in between the radio harness. Then just a hose into the engine bay off a tee from boost line for the boost gauge, and then a sensor for oil temp. Either the Lamco style ones which replaces the sump plug (which isnt the best as it can get easily damaged and also can be cooled by air flowing over it at speed) or using a defi sensor and using the bung off the back of the engine block under the intercooler.
