I have a 2002 wrx with sti turbo, sti pink injectors, full injen exhaust down pipe and short ram intake. everything else is stock. air fuel gauge reads 11.1 at wot 14.8 at idle and leans out off the throttle.
i have to drive the car 700 miles back to vemont from school and i have a starting issue. its sporadic at best. my starting and charging system checks out as good through all test and my air is fine i have found no leaks anywhere.
this problem started about 3 weeks ago but i cant pin it down because its not throwing codes.
on random starts the car will crank strong and turn over as soon as it reaches a 1000 rpms off crank it drops off its face and shuts off killing it self. if i give it a little throttle it will stay running but i shouldnt need to do that.
on other random starts the car will crank but wont turn over for atleast a hour. it seems to do this right after a 15 or 20 minute drive and the vehicle shuts off after the turbo timer cycle of 40 seconds.
during koeo i can hear the fuel pump cycle so i am to believe its a possible fuel filter but i am so frustrated at this point im asking for some real help. i would deffinitley appreciate some tech to tech help.
