Fuel pump not working
Have you put a meter across the connector too the fuel pump? Very often on the Impreza when the ECU senses no fuel the car will not restart. It will need an ECU reset. The easiest way of doing this is to disconnect the battery for half an hour. The ECU has capacitors in it that retain a charge. By cutting the current supply the charge in the capacitors leaks away and any stored fault codes will be wiped. Try this and see how you get on if you have a current showing at the pump connector end. You will also find that by resetting the ECU the car will probably run alot better after being a bit lumpy for a while. The Impreza ECU is a clever bit of kit. It learns your driving style and alters it's map accordingly. Very often when the Impreza turbo runs out of fuel it will not start until you disconnect the battery and reset as I have described. You may also get a red engine warning light on the dash aswell. Hope this helps.

Stalling problem with a 1993 subaru impreza
if the error code is saying bad cylinder id check it first, if it tells you which one take get a compression tester onto it, on all cylinders actually and check that they are all around the same mark. but even with a bad cylinder you should get some response, check the cable is still tight in the engine bay if not tighten it.
