If the CEL light is coming ON.This indicates that there are codes stored in the vehicles ECU(the computer memory of car). Instead of replacing parts its advisable that you get the error codes detected.Once the error code is detected ,then you can replace the exact faulty part .But if you have scanned and detected the error code and replaced the exact part as per the error code but still the error CEL light coming ON. Then the computer needs to be checked (tHE ECU) also recheck the error codes again. . If the problem repeats again n again then its advisable to get car scanned at diagnosis center to get error codes, At diagnosis center you will receive the error code.As per the error code it will detect the exact faulty part in the car due to which the problem is occurring.For more help :--- at www.autozone.com its absolutely free to get car scanned.
Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Yes.
The speed sensor in the transmission gives the computer data to control fuel mixture and timing, and it also drives the speedo and odometer.
The sensor would need to be tested.

The symptom you describe, assuming there are no external coolant leaks, indicate a high possibility of a failing cylinder head gasket.

I suggest you ask your local repairer to carry out a block test that uses a chemical that changes colour when it comes into contact with combustion gas.

OK, I would take the vehicle back to the dealer for Subaru and have them check the wiring in between the iacv and the computer for proper resistance, voltage, and current.

If you spent a fortune there and it's still giving you trouble it seems to me there would be a warranty and you would be justifie in asking for a solution for your problems on this vehicle.

Good luck to you on this problem.

I have a 1998 Subaru Liberty wagon 2.5Lt.. CEL comes on occasionally I think it may be fuel, however I cannot locate fuel filter to replace it. Could you please assist me ?


The fuel filter is on drivers side under hood. you should run it to a auto parts store and have them put an OBD scanner on it to see what code comes up. Most auto parts stores will do this for free. Good luck and have a great day.

Subaru impreza rs 2.5 insanely high idle


o2 would not cause this neither would the fuel filter, a clogged fuel filter would cause much the opposite. try reving the engine by the throttle body and pay attention to the throttle body, alot of throttle bodys start to wear and actually lock up slightly open, this would cause the throttle position sensor to read as if you were accelerating even though the pedal is at its rest position. seen this alot on nissan altimas 200-2005, cheers

1998 Subaru Outback, CEL light came on; car lost power


The wire that he replaced was most likely the alternator wire.
The alternator may need to be replaced.
Have it checked and replaced if necessary.
This is the device that powers the entire vehicle while its running, so it is pretty important!
Ask what the codes from the CEL come up, maybe we can help diagnose a little further.
