    Loss of power.

    Hi guys pretty new this forum. I've got an 02 impreza bugeye with no mods. I've recently had a loss in power. My engine light came on and it's come up as a lambda problem could this be the reason for loss of power? I've also been told that I could have a minor boost leak but I'm not to sure how to search for it. Can anybody help? Cheers.

    Welcome to club!


    How "sure" are that it's never been modified?

    I ask because if you search the code you will see that it is for Exhaust Gas Temperature Sensor Circuit Malfunction (High Input). You'll also see that it is most commonly associated with the UP (up pipe) having been gutted or replaced with a catless one on the early USDM WRX. If your car has been modified in this way there is lots of info available in the search results for cost effective remedy.

    Gutting or replacing the UP on those model years is probably one of the most common engine mods done.
