Subaru Legacy B4 - 1999 cutting out electrical/mechanical???

there is nothing worse to chase down than an intermittent electrical problem.the computer will only lead to the area if there is a code stored.
check all plugs are secure and all grounds.with it running,wiggleall the wiring harnesses and connectors and see if it may be heat related,so take a blow dryer and heat a few sensors to see if that causes a failure.

Hello, you have a vacuum leak in the closed loop section of your emission's system or theO2 sensor is bad.
First check the EGR valve for sticking and loose or broken hoses. Let me know what you find. Good luck.
