Question about 2012 Subaru Outback 2.5i Wagon 2.5L 4-cyl. AWD 6-speed Manual

Open Question

Just had 30K mile service on 2012 Subaru Outback 2.5i Wagon 4-cyl, AWD automatic. Was pulling a 4' X 8' trailer (light load) on highway. After driving about 340 miles, the brake light began to flash, the check engine light came on, the cruise control indicator began to flash, and the vehicle dynamics control warning light came on--all at once. We pulled over and parked the vehicle, turned it off and re-started, turned cruise control off and on, set and re-set parking brake, checked engine oil level, but all the same light indicators came on as before.

You may have to take it to a shop and have them connect their OBD tool to the computer and clear the deep memory. If you have a code left in the deep memory it can reapear like that. Good luck. Please rate me so I know how I'm doing. Thanks.

cruise light automatically comes on when there is a malfunction that causes c.e.l to illuminate,this occurs because your accelerator is electronically controled

SOURCE: ABS Light and Check Engine Light on, Cruise light flashing

I had this occur on my 2007 Subaru Tribeca. ABS, Traction Control, Check Engine lights were solid, Cruise Control light was blinking and "Er SS" (commonly misread as Er 55) displayed on Trip Odometer. All lights were cleared after 10 or so miles. It appears this is a Speed Sensor (SS) reading error whereby the computer notices an irregularity with the readings taken from the four wheels. Most often it is a temporary and harmless glitch and sometimes a result of debris that is impeding the sensor's reading at one of the wheels.

I do not know for sure if this is the problem you are having, But, I have noticed that from 95 up to 2002 I have seen a lot of PO420 codes that have been just the sensor. I do not know if it was a weak sensor or just that program telling it that it is below threshold. I did notice that if the vehicles are run for a long trip at highway speed it goes out. I wish you luck and have a great day.

Is it normal for my 2012 subaru outback to have a loud popping/clunking sound after I am done driving it (shut the car off)? I Have heard it from my previous car as a cooling thing but this seems loud


run the fault codes as it may be an indication that the cat converter is running at an excessive temperature due to incorrect air/fuel mixture settings from the ECM

WHAT WOULD CAUSE MY 2012 OUTBACK TO TRY & SURGE AHEAD WHEN I SLOW DOWN & APPLY THE BRAKES


The surge you experience will be the air/ fuel mixture adjusting to normal from the extra air from the brake booster. With you economy so low during winter I would be checking the fault codes for faults in the air/fuel system as it should get better as cold air has more oxygen content so more power with less fuel. There is only a rich mixture used while the engine is warming up and once at operating temperature then that rich mixture is reduced to normal mixture

High oil consummation for subaru 2012


From what you report, the difference from the original 4500Km and the later 14,500KM is 10,000KM. This does match the claim of the new oil. It does seem excessive, but the engine did get more than twice the distance than at the first interval of 4500KM.(2 x 4500KM=9000KM + 1000KM).

You should get a compression test to check for the piston rings and while they do this, they will remove the sparkplugs which could be physically examined. But getting someone to do this will probably require a call to Subaru Corporate Customer Service.

The Corporate people will probably have Data to tell if this oil consumption is higher than normal. The Corporate people would know about all the problems versus 1 Dealer and his experiences.

Somehow I want to say that in the past, new cars had a break-in period for the first 500 Miles, not to exceed 50 MPH. Do not know what that is in Kilometers, but you may have exceeded this in the first 3 days of driving. There are all kinds of theories for break-in periods.

You may benefit from a Browser search for Subaru's like a BLOG for Subaru or Impreza owners.

I hope my solution is helpful.

I have heard you can remove a fuse to disable AWD and improve mpg when AWD is not needed. Is there any truth to this?


I have a 1997 Subaru Outback Limited wagon. I was having major issues with torque binding but didn't have $1k to fix it, so I called a couple of local Subaru dealers and asked their in-house mechanic if there was any issue with putting the fuse in to override it into FWD... both said no. They both said there was no safety issue, nor would it do any type of damage to the car. They said the only issue is that it might wear out the C-Duty Solenoid faster than usual. One of the mechanics said it might happen in 5 days... might be 5wks... might be 5mos or even 5 years... no way of knowing. It was just the luck of the draw.

I've now had it in FWD mode for almost 11mos and there hasn't been an issue one.

Limited slip axles require in many cases the additive. It is ***** whale oil that is added to the required gear oil. Ck with Subaru is best. They sell it in the parts department and if capable you can add it yourself. or, have the dealer service your differential fluids. fluids
