Question about 2001 Subaru Forester

1 Answer

2001 Subaru Forester - Engine Cut Off system?

I'm told it's best to have a Timer Fitted so as to slowly cool-off the engine a minute or two after you've stopped the Vehicle? This i hear is to save the Intercooler engine - I.e,after you've been driving for a distance you are not supposed to just switch off the engine once you've reached your destination. Hope i'm not talking a load of ****, LoL!! Please help.

Regards
Michael

This is for turbo equipped cars to allow the turbo to cool to a safe temperature before stopping it. A usual amount of time is approx 10 seconds of engine running at idle after driving the car hard.

Check engine light is on, but hand held code


Try another scanner before you get too involved. I have seen scanners go bad when it was not the connection. Good luck and have a great day.
