    02 WRX Dies out at Idle

    I have a 02 WRX and it recently started stalling out at idle or when driving in the city (red lights). It does fine when I am on the highway though. I have checked everything I can think of with no findings. Anyone have any ideas?

    Did you check/replace the fuel filter? How many miles are on the car and what modifications?

    150k pretty much stock, no major upgrades.

    Check for vacuum/preturbo leaks. The turbo inlet pipe is known to get brittle and crack causing problems. Do you have a CEL?

    I'm having a similar issue with my 02. Let me know what you find out. I was wondering if it needed a tuneup.
