Question about 1998 Subaru Forester

I just purchased a used 1998 Subaru Forester. It's

I just purchased a used 1998 Subaru Forester (automatic). It's the best car I have driven (so far), but after a hard brake, the check engine light came on. It came on once before but went off when I brought it to get inspected (I assume it was the gas cap issue). It has not yet shut off but the car is fine. Oil and filter was just done last month and has another 2,000 miles to go, has new head gaskets, timing belt, new coolant, trans fluid, rear brakes and rotors. Any suggestions?

Have a parts store or mechanic, some do it for free, put the OBD scanner on and tell you what the computer is saying is wrong. Good luck and have a great day.

AWD went out in my 1998 Subaru Forester?


This recently happened to my 98 Subaru Legacy Outback.
My problem is in the rear differential. May be the same for you.
When making a turn, the car sounds like a Star Wars T.I.E. Fighter. The outside wheel is not turning fast enough to keep up with the inside wheel or vice versa. AWD is disengaged and car is currently operating on Front WD. I was told this is fine to drive this way.
