Question about Cars & Trucks
Is the clutch slipping? Have that confirmed., and if so, you will need a clutch job. About $150 for the parts (clutch disc, pressure plate, and clutch release bearing). Labor cost at shops will be high. Try to find someone you trust (a friend or neighbor who works on cars) to keep costs down. Independent shops are usually much less than dealerships. The job requires removing transaxle from car to get to the clutch. Do it yourselfers do it all the time.

You're not getting enough fuel. You should check your fuel pressure. If you have enough fuel pressure, your injectors are probably clogged up. Run a lot of fuel cleaner through your tank when you put gas in and see if it makes any difference. Lucas fuel treatment is the best to use.

Do check the motor mounts! Start the car, have a helper shift from reverse to drive! Is there a lotta engine movement?? Replace the faulty mounts. My quess it is almost flipping over! The output speed sensor likely on the back middle of the trans. There are only 2 connectors, the other is backup lights. Best I can do at this time! Frankster016

I took mine to the dealer to find out why the VSC, Trac off, and check engine lights are on. They said it is the camshaft position sensor, it retards the timing, and causes it to lose power when climbing. Also, 1 of every 30 to 50 scions have this problem. Sounds like it should be recalled for this. The cost of replacement is about $500 bucks. Get your dry belts and valve cover gaskets changed at the same time to avoid labor charges later. I couldn't believe the dealer charges $89 bucks an hour for labor these days, Rediculous. At least it comes with a a 12 month unlimited mileage warrenty.

You could have any of these problems:
1) vacuum leak- broken air hose or disconnected air hose.
2) water in the gasoline- add a water remover to you gas tank.
3) bad or disconnected spark plug wire(s).
If this were my Forester, I'd take it to a mechanic who has a electronic engine tester..

The codes listed all point to the transmission being in bad shape or some wiring got crossed. Check with a trans shop for an estimate.
