I know nothing about my car inards, can someone identifies the different parts under the hood? Like which is the cruise control and fuel pump?

A picture with labels on each part would be great.

I looked under the hood and all these pipes goes in and out of the engine block and I don't know what they are. How the radiator tank is connected and stuff....


Any help'd be appreciated.

No offense but If you don't know you better stay away from the underhood of your car until you do. Engines these days are very picky and when you do something to them you usally do more than just blow the head gasket (like you would on many cars of the day gone bye)

MAKE SURE you do lots of research

The fuel pump is (iirc) an electric in-tank kind, so you have some serious f'n problems if it makes its way underneath the hood. :D

But the cruise control module is a dark green thing, it's round, with a cable coming off of it going to the throttle body.

#1 is the cruise control
#2 is where the cruise and the gas pedal meet at the throttle body
#3 is the fuel filter

Go take an "auto shop" type of class, like most people take as an elective in high school. Your local community college should have one. If not, go to www.howstuffworks.com , there's some interesting automotive-related stuff there. Go to a local library and look for some sort of 'automotive encyclopedia' or something. Heck, you could at least read your Subaru owner's manual, it contains some mildly technical information.

You can't learn everything on the RS-club, at least not yet...

agreed, take an autoshop class at your local college. most only cost about 15-20 bucks a class and last about 2 weeks to get your basics in order. if your intrested check the phone book and call them up; they'll send you a booklet with a list of all the classes and how much they cost.

I looked into taking an autoshop class from the local school (because I got screwed in high school and didn't take it. :mad: )

There were a bunch of classes. Basically I wanted a real generic class so I could fix stuff on my '86 Dodge truck. It's a simple kinda truck.

But no luck. There were only 'program' classes that were made to slide you into a tech position in the service department at the local Toyota or Chevy dealership. :mad:

I don't want to know about computer diagnostics. I want to learn how to tune a carb! :mad: But there were NO classes for it. Argh.

Go to our web site here:

www.scoobymods.com

and look around. I have lots of how to's that with pics that show where things are. The whole reason we do the site is for people to learn.

RC it's not fair to say stay away from under the hood. If he's willing to learn, unlike a lot of car owners, how is he going to get any experiance? No one taught me.

You should start by doing some thing simple like changing your own oil. It's easy on our cars and it saves you money :)

Your owners manual should have some things pointed out too.
