Bogging down at bottom of gear when i give it more throttle
I have a 1999 subaru impreza outback First off My car was bogging down very badly in low end of the gears. I replaced the plugs and cables which seemed to fix the problem somewhat but not completely. It is still having the same type of problem(i think) but its severity is much less. Also my check engine light reads a cylinder misfire which is what tuned me on to new plugs and cables which as i said did help the problem but didn't solve it. The engine still reads a misfire which i think is the problem but idk what to do about it???

Re: Bogging down at bottom of gear when i give it more...
If after your replacement of parts and still getting the problem you described, I would have the coil checked. Also off hand I would check fuel pressure to make sure fuel filter is not going bad. Low fuel pressure will make it lag due to more air in system before fuel catches up. Just a thought. Good luck and have a great day.

Remove the rear wheel. There's a plastic road dirt cover over the filler tube. The top of the tube is secured with 2 or 3 small (M6) bolts, in the filler door area. The tube has another 2 or 3 M6 bolts, and is clipped into a rubber hose on the bottom end (this hose goes to the tank).
Most Subarus have a coating on the bottom of the chassis called Cosmoline, which is an anti corrosion compound sprayed on at the factory to protect them during shipping. The only thing I can recommend is to have your brakes inspected for siezed caliper slide bolds, severe rotor deterioration, and sway bar end links that may be broken or are about to break. You should also have the exhaust looked at because that is usually the first to go and the biggest pain when trying to get it emissions tested. I hope this info helps...
Check your vacuum lines near your intake. Usually with bogging in gears would be a bad front o2 sensor. When was the last time you got a tune up? Spark plugs, wires, fuel filter. Not being up to date on those can cause the car to lose performance.
