Exclamation WRX Check Engine Light Log

ONLY people who have had the problem may reply and post their history of:
* transmission (auto, manual)
* what date/mileage it went on/off
* what code was retrieved by the dealer (e.g. P1443)
* name of dealer
* what action the dealer took (e.g. ordered O2 sensor, drain solenoid)

If you reply with a question, or something unrelated to your CE problem, I will edit delete your reply and send you a rude PM.

Reminder: DO NOT reset it yourself. Take it to the dealer, ask them what code they pulled.

CE light went on around 200-300 miles. Dealer on 3/21, codes:
P1443 (vent control selenoid)
P0303 (misfire in #3)

I had filled the tank with the engine running 1 day before the light came on.

CE light again on 3/22. Dealer again on 3/23 at 725 miles. This time P0303. The dealer contacted SOA and was told to swap the injectors in cylinders 1 and 3. No problem since then, currently at 1800 miles.

Both P0303 codes occured at idle. I was sitting in a parking lot in both cases.

Transmission: Manual
Date: Wed, April 5th. On-1385 miles, Off-1420 miles (w/o reset)
Code: P0303 - Code for Misfire
Dealer: Colonial Subaru - Danbury, CT (this is not the dealer I am bringing it to for service though)

-5spd
-Came on at 97miles went out at 140miles
-Code: P1443 (retrieved a couple of days after it went out)
-Took to New Motors, Erie, PA
-Retrieved code, followed shop manual instructions, didn't find anything, cleared code, sent me on my way.

Also, a regional rep was at the dealer that day and he followed/helped through the whole process. I know the mechanic faxed a sheet describing the problem to SOA.

Trans: Manual (EDIT: sorry I forgot to put this down)
Date: Middle of night on drive home from pickin up car in AL (March 20th).
Miles: About 400. After second fill-up.
Resolution: Tightened cap and light went off after a few miles and several starts periodically while I slept at a rest area (Had to start it to heat up cabin every hour or so for a few hours). Will have code checked at next service. (EDIT: Actually I might just wait till I get it tuned...if I remember. I'm pretty sure it was a gas cap problem.)
Dealer: Madison Square Imports, Huntsville, AL. Will have it serviced while living in MD at Heritage Motors, Owings Mills, MD.

Sorry about not having a code, but at least maybe this will help you get a count of the number of CE problems.

Update from my dealer:

The dealership brought in two techs from Subaru's tech facility in Morestown to look into the rough idling and poor acceleration. (The CEL did not come back on after the new O2 sensor went in but performance was still lacking) They started switching out parts to see if they identify the cause - which turned out to be the Fuel Pressure Regulator. One of the techs will be running to Cherry Hill on Monday to pick up a new one.
