My 2003 jdm Subaru legacy turbo usually drops idling and goes off in traffic. What could be the problem?
Hi wondering is the 2012 2.0 subaru outback a reliable car.
I have a 2005 Subaru Impreza TS with the wrong ECU that is for a car with a 2.5l engine and mine has a 1.6l in it. The car surges on idling and has very bad gas mileage because of this and I cannot find the correct ECU for it. Can a ECU of the same size engine but of a different year work?
Hi I have a Subaru -11 Outback, 2L diesel Problem Started with it cutting out on idle when cold. Would get better after a couple of minutes. No fault code and Subaru shop had no clue. Then it started to die on idle even when war, Still no help from Subaru here. Now it will crank over but die if it fires up. Still no fault code or help. EGR, filters and pumps are ok. Reset of idle has no effect. If I give it a bit of pedal when starting it will start sometimes. If I aim at 2000 rpm it immidiately cuts down to 1500 by itself. First minute it will smell very bad at the exhaust. When running it will cut out directly if it goes under 1100 rpm. But when running it is running very well and low consumption. Very unreliable to drive like this. Subaru find nothing so I ´m really hoping you can point me in the right direction. Regards Richard Lehtonen Norrköping, Sweden

How much would I expect to get for a Subaru sports wagon 2006 two lt. petrol in very good condition. 13000 kilometres on the clock
I just bought a 2012 subaru 2.5x forester with 84k miles. This is na auto transmission, not CVT. On the highway yesterday, at 60mph, the tachometer was hovering at 2500. My question: it sounded like it needed to gear shift again. Is that the normal RPM's for this car at this speed? BTW, I went from a 1993 volvo 240 (yes I kept her) so maybe my ears and shifting experience is just different and the subaru is behaving normally.
