    stalling subaru

    My 1996 Subaru Impreza starts fine but stalls after 5 sec. I can not keep it from stalling by pressing on the gas pedal.

    Can some one help me?

    check your airfilter first. then ide check the induction system to the throttle body and check your fuel filter

    Thanks for the reply, the air filter is a couple of months old, i replaced the fuel filter first.

    Did this problem start all of a sudden, or has it come about slowly over time? Any recent changes to the car (services, parts replaced, etc)?

    It happened on the road two or three times, my daughter was able to start it and keep going. Now it starts but stalls right away.

    start with the basics...fuel, spark, and air.....fuel pump?, MAF sensor?... check all you vacuum lines also...make sure none of them are undone or cracked....

    Do you have any CELs? You're problem might be the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor)

    Its sounds like the MAF. A LOOOOOONNNNGGG time ago, when I had my first wrx in 2001, I put on a CAI. When I did, I orientated the MAF the wrong way. It would start up, and just stall right out. no amount of gas would work. Perhaps it's gone bad, been disconnected? plug is not in all the way, became dislodged?

    Love to build 'em, just to ship 'em out and start all over!

    I got friends in cyberspace, so I must be cool, right?
