Power loss

Asked by Oct 31, 2019 at 01:06 PM about the 1994 Subaru Legacy 4 Dr Touring Turbo AWD Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I recently purchased a 1994 legacy twin turbo right hand
drive with 35,000 miles. I use it to deliver USPS rural mail. I
have been experiencing a problem only when delivering
mail it runs great when driving normally. When delivering
mail its stop and go for approx. 5-6 hours and when I'm
about 4 hours it it loses power and check engine light
comes on. This only happens briefly and goes away it's
been occurring more and more. Also I'm smelling gas
fumes only when driving the mail route and it idles at 750-
800 rpms which I think is a bit low. I have had the coils
replaced(3 were cracked), new plugs and wires, battery, air
and fuel filter, and just recently replaced upper radiator
hose because of a small pinhole spewing coolant. Any
advice or recommendation would be greatly appreciated
and there is not a dealership near me I would have to drive
an hour. Thanks for reading about my problem. If you know
a trustworthy mechanic near southwest virginia that could
help greatly or if you can give me a list of things to check or
get fixed. Anything you can do would be great. Thank you
so much and have a great day.
