97 Subaru outback flooding out

Asked by Jul 09, 2017 at 11:34 AM about the 1997 Subaru Legacy 4 Dr Brighton AWD Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Started running bad. Had to keep the rpms
up for it to run. Got it home and checked
the oil. Smelled gas and no oil. It's
dumping so much gas it washed the oil out
of the car. Bad injectors?

1 Answer

Probably a leaking fuel injector(s). Check the spark plugs to see if they are sooty. Change the oil too!
