fix or trade? HELP subaru problems.....
we purchased a 200 subaru outback limited legacy... with 100,000 miles on it... a month
after driving it, it started to back fire and stall. we had the spark plugs, spark wire set,
fuel filter, air filter, o2 sensor, catalytic converter/ gasket... oil changed/ fresh anitfreeze,
thermostat and seal replaced. i drove it for 2 weeks, and it is almost stalling when i slow
down, i put it in neutral and rev the engine and put it back in drive when i have to move....
i have had it in the garage all weekend .... not sure if i need a new timing belt or if its time
to get rid of it... please advise... thanks!! we were hoping to use it for another 150,000
If it were me, I'd have it diagnosed at the local Subaru Dealer and go from there. Spending $100. or so to find out exactly what's wrong will enable you to make an informed decision. HTH. -Jim
Start looking at vacuume lines and the intake for any tears or leaks, vacuume leaks will cause such issues and leaks in the intake tube after the MAF/MAP sensor will also cause similar issues.
