I am BRAND NEW to this forum as well as Subaru. I bought a really nice 2002 WRX just yesterday and it has been amazing... until just now. I was taking a friend home and did a 2nd gear pull (not the first one) and a few minutes after that my throttle was pretty unresponsive and idling at 500rpm.
Went to a local store and checked the codes, said misfire in #2 and the code was P0302.
White smoke is coming from my exhaust, which normally means coolant. But I am pretty sure that I dont have a blown head gasket because I had some Subaru specialists do a pre-buyers inspection on the car and everything checked out (other than needed a new valve cover gasket).
I am currently a true noob at Subaru (give me time ) but i have some friends who know them very well. So if anybody could please give me some help i would really appreciate it.
