Question about 1998 Subaru Forester
Changed fuel filter, air filter, checked vacuum hoses for cracks- looked fine, checked egr valve for build up- fine. Started car. turns over and idle for a moment then slowly stalls out in about 5 seconds....hmmm help!
If this had the problem before you worked on it then it could be bad gas. If after the fuel filter change, check the flow direction on the fuel filter and you may want to take off the filter and blow into it to see if it is clogged. Usually the fuel is looping around the system. Try taking off the fuel cap and start the car. It may be an air pocket and with the cap off it may eliminate the air pocket.
