Hello and thank you for choosing Just Answer.

The best thing to do is hook it up to a live data to see what sensor is giving false reading. This is typically caused by a bad crankshaft or camshaft sensor. However if a wire is cut between the sensor and the computer you can change sensors all you want and you'd be chasing ghosts. Your best bet is to have it hook up to a live data to see what signal is low.

Hi, this is not much help to me. What equipment do u need to get the data. Can u find it with a multimeter. It has been to the local Subaru dealer where it has been serviced since new in 1990. Surely they would have picked up any code errors.
