    Are You Jealous?
    Do you have a bad case of the green eyed monster? Or do you play it cool?
    You just got dusted by a maroon Rsliberty what do you do?
    1. Turn off at the next side street?
    2. Try to catch up and try again at the next set of lights?
    3. Give the wave and admit defeat?

    Yeah there is HEAPS of technical data here. I unfortunately let my car sit for about 2-3 years in the garage without starting her etc so now have the task of trying to get it running again, fuel went off, water got into the clutch slave and master cylinders and ruined them (already sleeved and rebuilt) the coolant crystallised and went hard, semi slicks are too old now and will need to be replaced and that is just what i can see for now.

    Already put a new fuel pump in, brand new fuel filter, i think the Sard FPR will need to be replaced, injectors were stuck closed so i took them out and got them working again.
    Flushed the radiator and engine whilst thermostat was out although i will need to do it again when the car is running.
    Brakes are next but looking at the reservoir it looks like it will need to be rebuilt as well

    Looking at trying to get it started tomorrow after i flush and replace brake fluids and see if i need to get brake master cylinder rebuilt.

    Long term plans are once i get it going again i will finish putting all the parts i never fitted and then i will do a full engine build as the internals of the motor is pretty much the only thing that is stock lol...

    Lesson learnt... never let a car sit there too long without starting/driving it.

    I'm in the same boat. Haven't started mine in a couple of years. Went start it the other week and it would crank and not start. After peddling it for a bit it would try to start but no luck. Its been so long I don't remember where to start diagnosing the issue.

    at the moment with not optimum tubes, old IC, running out of fuel pump and on 98 pump gas 460 hp. but it was built as a response engine, not max power...max torque from 4000-6000, max power from 6000-7000, feels like a super motard

    Hey George ! long time no speak ! i hope you have been well !? In the couple of years that you did not start it did you change the fluids, fuel etc ? if not then your in the exact same boat as me and can follow everything i am doing.

    I also took the brake master cylinder off as the brake fluid was all crystallised in the reservoir and when i took that off the brake booster looks all rusted as well so will need to take that off in the next few days too. Rang subaru and they said $400 for a new master cylinder and $850 for a new booster, or i can get the master cylinder stainless steel sleeved and rebuild for around $280 and the booster reconditioned for $280 as well. Then i will need to flush all the lines out too and they check the callipers. I really didn't think it would do this much damage for just sitting around as i also used all top of the range fluids not cheap nasty stuff.

    Nice! You got me worried now. I've not started mine in 6 months.

    Glad I'm not the only one. Best thing I ever did was having a little one but poor Scooby has suffered.
