So, I was driving hone from work tonight and I put the pedal to the floor after the car had a few minutes to warm up. All went well as usual but then it felt like the clutch was slipping. I shifted gears and then it happened again once the rpm's climbed back up.
I waited about 10 mins then I floored it again, this time watching the rpm's. At around 5k the engine just seems to stop making power for a fraction of a second then comes back, then loses it again and so on. I held the pedal down as I was trying to figure out what was going on and it wasnt able to really get up to 6k. Then the check engine light starts flashing. I immediately let off the gas completely. After about 10 - 15 seconds it went away.
When I was close to home, I floored it again and I got through first and second shifting at about 6.5k then in third I it started again and I held the pedal down for a 2 or 3 seconds then the CEL starts flashing again, then goes away. Temperature this whole time was just below the middle of the gauge (slightly on the cold side.)
I have no clue what this could be. And i'm %$@&ing angry as i have only had this car for 1.5 months.
Info about the car: 2002 WRX sedan. Has a magna flow muffler and unsure of the brand of down pipe. I was told it has a stage one reflash and should make an extra 2psi of boost. Also has injen cold air intake, and HKS blow off valve.
Until tonight actually I have never seen the boost guage go a hair past .1 MPa which is about 14.5 PSI but tonight I saw it cross it by the width of the needle. It may have gone to .11 or .12 MPa if i were to guess.
Sorry this is so long but I want to get the best help I can and not leave anything out... I have fallen in love with this car and don't want it to die.
