2001 Subaru Outback died

Asked by Sep 12, 2017 at 11:45 PM about the 2001 Subaru Outback L.L. Bean Edition Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2001 Subaru Outback LL bean
addition. I bought it used. It's bee in good
shape and I've maintained it. It has just
below 300,000 miles on it. It stopped
running the other morning. I was driving
and then if just stopped and now it won't
start. ive gotten the starter, alternator, fuel
pump and filter looked at and they're fine.
What could be wrong? Is it time to just call
it and get another one?

Not far from a new one, but sounds like if it just died without making any noises it may be something simple, at least not a blown up engine.


Is the check engine light on? Codes? Check for spark and fuel pressure.

No warning lights came on or anything. It just died...


2.5 or 3.0?

I think 3.0


Then t-belt is ruled out. Check for cam/crank sensors, as their failure won't trip a CEL.
