Hey Guys & Girls, I have a 1993 Subaru Sambar Van 660cc and I'm running into a few problems as of lately. If anyone can shed some light I would be extremely grateful! 1: My Steering light comes on I'd say 3 out of 5 starts and steering obviously becomes difficult. Does this year of van have power steering module or do I need power steering fluid? or neither? or both? 2: I'm also wondering if I'm having transmission issues. If i press the gas pedal, sometimes it will take 2 or three seconds to engage and then promptly kicks forward starting at about 3 or 4 thousand rpms and then comes down to normal revs once i get going a bit. 3: I have to put oil in on a tri-weekly basis. If i don't put oil in tri-weekly i get a gross "piston rattle" kind of a sound and when i am stopped at a red light there is terrible engine shake. As soon as I put oil in the engine shake stops for about a week, but then after that the engine shakes for the remaining two weeks until my oil light comes on and I replenish it. I don't see a leak anywhere so it must be burning. What could be some causes? 4: I also get that gross "piston rattle" kind of a sound when cruising at 60-65km. Any speed above or below that is fairly normal sounding. 5: I generally can't make it past 105km/h on a good day. (Not that i realllly want to rev 6 grand anyway) 6: Lastly, my battery dies most days if the weather cools off slightly(i.e, 5 degrees or less). Otherwise it seems to be generally ok. The battery is not even a year old. I thought at first that the Pioneer Dual Din that was supplied when i bought the van was causing a draw, so i disconnected that and it worked at first but now the battery dies most days again. Could I be having an alternator problem? Or could it just be a bad battery? It didn't do this for the first 2 years I owned the van. ****a side note - If i leave the lights on for even 10 minutes with the engine off, the battery will die completely. Also, when I first start the van the fan and lights won't come on fully until i hit the gas pedal. Lots of issues! Any Help would be much appreciated!
