I have a stock '04 wrx standard with about 92k. Lately, it's been doing this weird stalling thing. I'll start the car and drive away, and after about a mile, the engine will completely shut down when I put it into neutral. I've always been able to start it up again immediately and drive away, and it's never happen twicen the same trip. (That makes me wonder if it has anything to do with the engine being cold.) This scenario has happened a few times now, and always at the SAME place in the road, about a mile away.
About the third or fourth time this happened, the "check engine" light came on and stayed on. I got it looked at, it was a faulty O2 sensor. I had it replaced, but the next day the stalling problem happened again!!
Being out of work, and having spent $400 on the O2 sensor fix, I'm reluctant to give the car to a mechanic to diagnose for the problem at $80/hour... Does this problem sound familiar to anyone? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
