CHECK ENGINE FLASHES WHENEVER I DRIVE THE CAR.

I JUST IMPORTED FROM JAPAN A SUBARU FORESTER 2000. SINCE THE FIRST DAY IT CAME THERE IS A SIGN OF CHECK ENGINE FLASHING ON THE DASH BODY. I THOUGHT IT HAS TO DO WITH THE ENGINE OIL SO IWENT TO SERVICE THE CAR BY CHANGING THE ENGINE OIL + OIL FILTER BUT STILL WHEN YOU DRIVE THE CHECK ENGINE SIGN FLASHES. I DONT KNOW WHAT IS THE PROBLEM. PLEASE ADVISE.

The Check Engine light usually means the car has an emission system problem. Diagnosis requires an OBD2 scanner.

But first, check your gas cap. Is it loose? How good is the O-ring or gasket? A poor seal is the most common Check Engine cause.

Good luck.

Why do i have low power on the subaru forester 2003 when its hot?


There is an air sensor on your air filter intake. I would first suggest having this checked for proper function. There are other sensors that can also be checked. Your problem does not sound mechanical

Sidebar: I have always used full-synthetic oil for turbo-equipped automobiles.

My subaru forester flashes TCS light as i am driving it whats the problem


TCS is traction control system. It is a sensor that measures the quality of your traction with the road. If it is flashing, slow down and see if it stops. The problem is sometimes due to a faulty sensor and not the actual traction. J.

2000 subaru forester ignition coil wiring


Are there any other possible problems, or you are just not receiving spark at all now?

The coilpack could be dead and just need replaced. If you have a voltmeter or a test light, check the wiring on both sides of the coilpack harness to make sure it is receiving power.
I don't believe Subaru used ignitors past '99, but if they did, your should be located on the firewall behind the throttle body. Make sure it's plugged in and receiving power.

Coil packs do go bad from time to time. I had to replace mine in my
'98 Impreza a while back.

Goodluck!
