    I have a 91 Legacy. I was on my way to work, and the car died, and wouldn't
    start. I had it towed to the shop and they couldn't reproduce the problem.
    Got the car back, and one my way to work, the car died, and wouldn't start.
    After a 4 mile trip to call a tow truck, I had it towed again ...

    The shop tells me that if they bang on the dash, the car will start, but
    they said labor on finding the problem could run upwards of a few thousand
    dollars.. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on what the problem could

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    A couple of thousand dollars per hit! Time to find another shop. At the
    very least they could check the ECU codes to as least get an idea of where
    to look. Try posting at for a much less
    expensive opinion and perhaps a fix. If you're in the Seattle area I could
    suggest two shops that don't fix things by banging on the dash!
