    Still no progress on my misfire situation. Haven't driven the car in a week but it's still not acting like any misfire I've ever heard or felt. Runs great. What is the possible worst case scenarios? I'm taking it to the shop Monday...trying to wrap my head around the wrist possible stuff....

    IF YOU HAVE A MISFIRE CODE ,PLEASE READ THIS!!!

    Just like to say thanks Donkey. I had a buddy call me in a panic today, his 06 wrx limited failed a smog test on his way to sell the car because of misfire codes on all cylinders. I told him to come over and I'd help him out.

    Car has 92k miles on it and he paid a Subaru dealer to do the 90k service. Read the first page of this thread; cleaned his MAF, checked the plug gap and they ranged from .042-.045. I think the dealer either didn't gap them or put in the NA plugs. I regapd and reinstalled the plugs and cleared the codes. Alternator belt was in horrid condition, so I replaced that too.

    He drove it 80 miles and all the readiness monitors had cleared. Problem solved.

    Guys and gals, Donkey clearly stated that the purpose of this post is informative only and not intended to become a question and answer session. If you have a misfire code, please read the first post in entirety. If the action points do not resolve your issue, please post a thread explaining your issue. We will do our best to help you on your way. Thread closed to preserve its sanctity.

    If you have a resolution to the misfire, as Donkey suggested, and it's not listed in the initial post or any subsequent posts, feel free to PM me and I will edit this thread.

    Condition: Car suddenly developed severe stumbling, misfire codes rotating thru cylinders.

    Action: Started troubleshooting per Donkey's post, MAF cleaned, plugs replaced, etc. Found my problem during fuel filter replacement:
    The plastic 1/2 of the twist-together filter canister in the in-tank filter had partially separated from the metal 1/2, and the O-ring was also damaged. Fuel leaked from the resulting gap upon pulling assembly, so I'm sure air could be sucked in also when tank was low or during sloshing from spirited driving. Replaced filter and o-ring, cleared codes and all seems well. There were no obvious signs that it had ever been serviced (lots of dirt on top of the tank) so this may have been a factory issue(??)

    My suggestion for a Possible post update: "Check in-tank fuel filter canister for proper assembly and o-ring integrity to ensure fuel pickup is OK."
