If your car has coil packs it is most likly them. Some Impreza cars especially the Turbo versions have individual coils built into the lead at the plug end. If your car has these then they crack down the side . If you take them out you can see a fine crack in the plastic. You cannot fix them, they have to be replaced. Check to see if you have them, it might help.

If you have any of the large chain auto parts stores in your area, call them and ask if they do free scans; most do.
If Subaru has maintained the same procedures for a while, and you have checked fluids, etc., you can try resetting the light via the ignition switch:
-Turn on the ignition (don't start) - switch it rapidly between the 'ignition on' and 'ignition off' positions three times.
If the error has cleared itself (not uncommon), the check light will reset. If the problem is still present, it will either stay or come back on.
Our Su has done this a couple of times and with the scanner we have on hand, there was never any particular repeated problem. Just a computer glitch/hiccough -

May or may-not be. Recheck your timing belt. You may just be out of phase enough that the valve is not open at the right time, or closing at the right time. If you are 100% sure timing belt is in proper phase then you may have bent a valve. Good luck and have a good day.

I would do that plus test the plugs, wires and coil pack.

1999 mitsubishi montero sport. Randomly started hesitations and low rpms in gear at idle. and highway speeds dropped rpms slightly and when let off accelerater rpms drop too quick and low. Any ideas?


Engine light on? Many things can cause this. Mass airflow sensor, throttle pos. sensor, cam sensor, idle control valve, O2 sensor, vacuum leak etc, diagnosis be great. Good luck

Each head lamp also has it's own relay, you can rule the relay out by swapping the left head light relay with the right head light relay & see if the problem moves to the other side...The relays are also in the same under hood fuse box.
