I have a 1998 Subaru Forester (yep, a first gen Forester) and this problem started about 2 weeks ago. I pulled the car to the house (started fine) to load it with luggage. When I tried to restart the car, it wouldn't. I turned the key, and not a sound. I tried several times, making sure the clutch was in so the safety would deactivate, still nothing. I ended up popping the clutch and it ran fine. Not wanting to get stranded though, I turned the car off and tried again. Once again nothing. So, with the car off (and no more slope to pop the clutch), I kept trying the ignition. Eventually, it did start though. The same thing happened yesterday. I'm not sure about the first time, but it was definately raining yesterday, not sure if that has anything to do with it. The starter has been worked on / replaced before. The car is set to go to the shop on 7/29. Any tips or suggestions would be appreciated.
