Asked by Oct 17, 2014 at 12:21 PM about the 2002 Subaru Legacy GT Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2002 Legacy GT Wagon - has been idling rough recently and then last night,
started but died quickly after a few seconds. AAA came to tow to shop, said battery was
fine. Fuel pump, maybe? O2 sensor?

More than likely,it is the fuel filter,or pump,check the fuel pressure to let you know it is a fuel issue.
