Question about 2002 Subaru Outback

2 Answers

2002 Subaru outback was idling rough and sometimes lungeing. Check engine light came on and when put on a machine it showed that the car was misfiring in 3 cylinders. Changed the plugs to find oil in them. Replaced valve gasket cover and the gaskets around the plugs. Ran fine right after but the next day back to the same rough idle and lungeing.

I have a 1998 Mercury Grand Marquis rough idle, smelling gas first few minutes after I start my car. My car is also flashing engine light sporadically and losing acceleration.I recently changed spark...


flashing light most always means missfire.
could even be crossed wires.to the plugs.
you really need a code reader and find the trouble code .
but in the mean time make sure the firing order is correct.
good luck .gary

there are two ways your car controls its idle
the throttle position sensor and the idle air control.

Stalling, dying,rough idle. After engine warms up, engine will start, but will not idle, dies. check engine light on.


u should definitely get ur engines computer system scanned to avoid misdiagnosing ur isssue. once u retrieve ur eng codes u can then begin to decide which one of ur 25 sensors are acting up, or where to start lookin an testing for ur fault..... good luck

The serpentine belt broke on my2002 subaru outback


There is a distinct possibilty there is engine damage caused when the belt broke. It is best not to turn the engine at all once this happens. Sometimes you can be lucky and there be no damage. Let's hope that's so in your case. These belts are supposed to be replaced every 100,000km.

1997 subaru outback make clicking noise on in reverse. Also, sometimes when the car is turned off, the car lurches a bit


does it click while reversing straight or while turning? Sounds like a stick shift. Lunging probably due to e-brake needing adjustment(if stick shift). If your car only clicks while turning in reverse you need new front axles and can probably drive that way for a while

Idle malfunction


You need to replace your idle air controller (IAC). IAC basically opens and closes the throttle at idle so it stays at constants RPM.  Hope this helps.  Thanks for an honest rating and for using FixYa.

2000 subaru outback/ clunk when i put it in reverse


Turn off engine . get the vehicle on level ground. try to move driveshaft back an forth or,by rocking in twist motion,,, try to hear a knock,,,this would indicate a worn universal joint.either front or back, if you are good enough to discern which one is making the klunk, change both to be on the safe side. think they may be about 20 dol apiece.
