    2008 WRX Car Problems!!!!

    Having problems with my car right now. I was wondering if anyone knows what might be causeing the problems or what i should do. I haven't gone to autozone to have them run the test yet. Here is whats going on, my Engine check light and VDC and Cruise control lights poped on while i was driving. The Cuise control is blinking. Not sure what happened but the car seems to be running fine and i called a subaru mechanic and he just told me that it can be many things and told me i should go in and have it checked.

    Any ideas on whats wrong?

    I agree with the subaru mechanic. We can't diagnose over the internet what the Check Engine Light is from.

    You have a 5yr 60k mile warranty on your car. Is it still in warranty? If so... take it in, and let them deal with it.

    Thanks, I went and got the Check Engine checked and got the code P0171 Bank 1 system too lean.
    I have been looking it up online and found out that it can be many things such as: Exhaust, MAF, Fuel injectors, Spark plugs, or a leak in my pipings or hose. So pretty much confused on what to have them look at.
