Question about 2001 Subaru Legacy
The car drives normally and idles normally, then intermitantly I go to
start the car, and it starts but will not idle. I have had the oxygen
sensor replaced, and also the mapping sensor replaced, and it still
happens intermitantly. To get it going I need to let it cool down, and
then rev the engine hard and it starts to run normally again. My
mechanic says it is not showing any fault codes,
and is not sure what is causing he problem.
Check the IACV (idle air conrol valve) which monitors idle speed. a clean out of one is a good idea periodically either way.
