2004 subaru forester, 99,000 miles. Check engine


First suggestion is go to AutoZone and get the error codes read (for free) -- this'll probably tell you exactly what the problem is.

Misfire and check engine light-flashes 12 times


There is a dead cylinder, so its not getting a spark at one spark plug. Check it at Autozone for free, that will tell you where the trouble is.

Oil light flashing, last oil change 7 wks ago


I belive they didn't reset the oil light timer. I belive the sequence is 1. key on (not acc with engine off)
2. step on the brake pedal 5 times within 10 seconds. 3. key off. 4. start car. 5. check if the light went out. you may have to try it a few times to get it.

Saw oil leak and really worried


Our son just replaced the front crankshaft seal on his but the check engine light wouldn't turn on unless the oil level had gotten way too low.
Said the replacement wasn't that difficult but he had to do it twice as a gasket did not align correctly the first time.
