Question about 2006 Subaru B9 Tribeca

1 Answer

I just had an oil change and my air filter changed out 3 days ago. Tires rotated and pressure checked 4 days ago and when they checked pressure during oil change said they said it was way too high and let out air. Don't know if they were right anyway after that. Filled up with gas last night and went to work this morning, everything fine. Go to go to lunch and my engine light came on, cruise light blinking (tried reset in case I did hit it. Didn't work), and my vehicle dynamics control "off" light came on all at the same time. I have checked oil, brake fluid levels, ect. It does not smell, get hot, or drive funny in anyway. What is going on here?

Hi, the Check Engine light and the cruise light blinking tells you the computer found a problem with your vehicle's running condition but if the vehicle is driving OK, a Check Engine light is not a reason to pull over and get the problem fixed soon. In testing areas, you will fail your emissions test if the Check Engine light is on and fuel economy generally suffers when the Check Engine light is on. When the Check Engine light is on, one or more "trouble code(s)" are stored in the computer and you can read and erase trouble codes using inexpensive code-reader tools from auto-parts stores; the tools are very easy to use. The problems identified by the codes are frequently easy to fix (such as a loose gas cap), but some are complex, requiring professional diagnosis. A trouble code indicates a circuit where the problem was identified, not necessarily the component itself. Diagnosis is often necessary.

How many miles until I need to change my coolant, brakes, engine belts, rotating/pressure for my tires, alignment, windshield wiper blades and fluid, transmission, air filter, power steering fluid, shock...


depends on how you drive, the car will tell you when you need to change the oil, tire pressure, most tire shops will tell you 5000 miles then rotate tires, remember front to back same side do not change right sides for left sides, as far as trans oil, never, wipers depends on what kind of area you are in.
