I have a 02 wrx it is almost all stock. it has an aem CAI (it was installed befor i got the car) and turbotimer. Its got 103,000 miles on it.
Heres my deal, lately it has been Idling low 500-550rpms (on the tach) and the car shakes a little, I dont remember it always doing that... almost like a vac leak, i could not find any
The other day, I was shifting from 2nd to 3rd and when my boost maxed i lost all power and stalled out. I could not start it with the key, or by droping the clutch, 10 seconds later and it started fine. NEVER HAPPENED BEFOR! I changed the sparkplugs (i was planning on doing it anyways). 2 days ago getting on the freway, 2nd to 3rd killed it. I left the clutch in and 3-4 seconds it was running again. yesterday I was getting on a highway, and 1st to 2nd killed it ( I was able to get it going again) and then went easy on the car and everything was fine.
I can floor it in any gear and its fine, I went 110 on the freeway (at night with no cars around) Fine!
Its almost like the fuel is shuting off...
No CEL lights, however a month ago I had a p0303 <??sp (Cyl 3 misfire) I reset the code, changed the plugs every thing was fine till this last week...
anything helps guys, thanks!!- Ian
