Question about Subaru Cars & Trucks
First simptom was the car had low revs and almost no torque then after i switched engine of it would not start
I ran into this once when I changed a 2000 engine with a 2001 engine. The crankshaft gear for the timing belt was different. One had 2 ears for the crank angle sensor and one had 4. To check if this is the problem, pull all 4 sparkplugs, hook them to your plug wires, turn the engine over and see if you only have spark to 2 cylinders. If that's what you find then you will need to replace the crankshaft timing belt gear.
If that's not it, and you have spark to all 4 cyls., check your fuses. It could be a fuel pump fuse or ECM or an number of other fuses.

the lean condition is the big clue here it indicates a lack of fuel which is causing the mis-fire on #3. I would suspect a fuel injector is clogged or not getting a pulse from the PCM. ( pulse is the electronic signal)
