I just had this fixed on my suby today. The cause is that the spark plugs, go through the valve covers on the 2.5 l .When the o rings in the cover go, the result is oil in the spark plugs. The cost of the repair in Canada was about $500 including diagnostics as well as new plugs and wires About 1.5 hours labor and new seals and gaskets. It now runs like new. This is a common problem for this subaru engine as well as for the dodge neon.

The oil in the spark plug may cause the car to run sluggish. The oil may prevent the spark plug from firing correctly or cause you to burn oil. You may want to replace the oil seals around the spark plug holes by removing the valve cover and you should be able to change the oil seals underneath the cover. While at it check the engine for loose wire connections and loose vacuum hoses.

Yes bad plugs/ worn plugs /oiled up plugs/ or HTleads with spark jumping will all cause the engine to run rough,and not idle and when it does it runs rough enough to break the engine mounts.
When its dark at night start the engine and look under the bonnet do you see sparks jumping if yes replace the worn parts if no then check plugs and if light grey there ok /if black through away.
So check it out and let me know how you get on . Ron

Possibly, but other things can cause the same symptoms. If the check engine light is on, a scanner read of the computer will give you better clues that 'hip shooting' parts replacement can do. Possible things to look for--weak fuel pump, plugged fuel filter, water in the fuel, spark plugs and wiring, O2 sensor, and the list goes on.

SOURCE: check engine light
if check engine light is blinking that is from a miss fire have the system checked with a scanner to get a trouble code then you will know what cyl is causing the problem may be a fuel injector or bad compression in that cyl but you will have a better idea where to look
