Question about 1997 Subaru Legacy

1 Answer

Cylinder 1 misfire on my subaru!!

My car has a check engine light, when taking off from first gear the car bogs and wants to stall. I just replaced the mass air flow sensor. The computer sends a code for a cylinder 1 misfire. About three weeks ago it first sent a code for an O2 sensor.I'm not sure if I should replace the plugs and wires first or the O2 sensor??

What you should check first is the spark plug for the #1 cylinder and see if there is a white film on it this would be a sign of a coolant leak which would cause a problem with the O2 sensor

Check engin light code misfire cylinder 1


You might need to give it new plugs and wires! Also check the plenum on top of engine for cracks! That can cause a misfire in cylinders! The plenum on a 3.8 V6 is hard plastic and cracks easy!

My dad's Liberty will start with no problem but then the engine light flashes 5 times and then will stall once it hits second gear-please tell me what the 5 flashes mean


I would take the vehicle to your local autozone and have the codes checked and that can tell you with a lot more accuracy what the issue is.
Thanks,

Check your vacuum lines near your intake. Usually with bogging in gears would be a bad front o2 sensor. When was the last time you got a tune up? Spark plugs, wires, fuel filter. Not being up to date on those can cause the car to lose performance.

Bogging down at bottom of gear when i give it more throttle


If after your replacement of parts and still getting the problem you described, I would have the coil checked. Also off hand I would check fuel pressure to make sure fuel filter is not going bad. Low fuel pressure will make it lag due to more air in system before fuel catches up. Just a thought. Good luck and have a great day.
