    car won't pass emissions. They we said it was a communication problem. We've also had several axle problems. We've replaced several things, run the car x amount of miles and the engine light still keeps coming on. Please help.
    We've spent a lot of money on this car and unfortunately we have to have it.

When your check engine light comes on, the car is telling you there's a problem, but it's still okay to drive to your destination. When the check engine starts blinking at you, that means pull over and turn off the car before you incur more damage.
Please keep in mind that you shouldn't be driving it indefinitely without having your code checked (you can rent a code reader from most car parts stores) but that you probably won't kill anything if you drive it for a few more days.

Engine light on with flashing cruise control


This happened to me when I forgot to change my engine oil when it was due for an oil change. After I changed my engine oil, it took about 200 miles for the Engine light and flashing cruise control to turn off.

only advice i can give it take the instrument cluster out of the dash and remove the light bulbs for both items. although it's not smart advice but it will solve your problem of not wanting to have it fixed correctly.

What does the diagnostic code P2181 mean on a Subaru Impreza WRX?


this is a coolant performance code. Usuallly sets this code if the connector was left unhooked to the coolant sensor or the thremostat is stuck open. By any chance do you have a gauge that seems to be on the cold side ??

Hi, have a WRX V7 2001 and engine stopped, thought cam belt broke but had not. did compression check and all cylinders only 40PSI. could there be a problem with lifters not getting oil pressure. if so what...


If there are a lot of miles on the timing belt (over 60,000), the belt may have jumped several teeth due to wear causing the cam to be out of time. If the lifters go flat from oil lack, the engine will continue to run poorly, and very noisy. Check the timing marks on the cam and crankshaft to see if they are lining up properly.
