Nevermind, didn't realize this was a "risen from the dead" thread. Use TSB 02-163-16R

Default Frustrated

2016 WRX | 41000 Miles

P000A & P1578 Came on again.
The first time this happened my dash lit up like a Christmas tree. I swear every light came on. The dealer said that a solenoid that operates the VVT needed replacing. The dealer said that after the replacement, the ECM couldnt relearn the values. The ended up getting a new cam sprocket and replacing the ECM because a reflash wasnt working. This was 2000 miles before warranty expired. Less than a year later and now at 41K these codes come up. It's frustrating. I'm going to see what the damage is today.

I would think this would be covered under the 5/60k powertrain warranty, not the 3/36k bumper to bumper.

Default Round 2 for Me

Back story: Had a P000C code pop-up a little while back on my 2016 WRX Base Model. Brought it to my Dealership hoping the fix was covered by the Powertrain Warrenty (SPOILER ALERT! IT'S NOT! ). Ended up paying them close to $200 for parts and labor for them to Replace the Driver-side Intake Oil Control Valve. This did fix my P000C code.

(OCV Lastest Revision Part #: 10921AA241 Link: https://parts.subaru.com/p/Subaru__/...0921AA241.html)

Fast forward to today. I got a P000A code (Most Likely the Passenger-side Intake Oil Control Valve). Because I learned my lesson last time, I've decide to replace the part myself. I am very confident that its the OCV because the symptoms my car is having are the same exact symptoms as last time.

Symptoms before the code appeared was at idle, at random times rpms would dip slightly and shake the car slightly almost like its about to stall.

Symptoms after the code appeared, same symptoms but more amplified, at idle the rpms would dip farther and more frequent, cause the car to shake harder feeling like the car was going to stall.

But this time I'm replacing the remaining 3 OCVs, so I dont have to deal with a 3rd and 4th time of having this happen. So I found the Genuine Subaru OCV on eBay for half the price Subaru was selling it for, and bought them right away.

Should be easy to do since it 2 bolts per valve and its right in the front of the engine. (Here's a video i found on how to replace it:
) I also belong to a car group and have a bunch of Mechanic friends to help me out if something goes wrong.

Also in the youtube video i mentioned above, the guy says if the OCV doesn't fix the code, then it might be the camshaft sprocket that's inside the timing cover. If that is the case for me, I will bring it straight to the dealership and fight the fight that the Camshaft sprocket should be covered under the powertrain warranty. It's internal to the engine, its definitely not on the outside where you can get to it without opening the engine up.

I will post an update after I get the new OCVs installed and after i drive around a little bit. Part arrive to my house about Sept. 16 or 17.

Hope this helped.

You're supposed to replace the spacer and o-ring when you replace those things.

According to the video the part only comes with a new rubber seal, not a spacer. But u don't really see a major concern about reusing the spacer as long as its intact and not damaged.

They get reused all the time in the dealers, but they're not supposed to. It helps set tension on the o-ring, so if it gets compressed, you're not going to get the seal you should.
