    changed filters, now car won't run

    I bought for my wife a 99 impreza L ( which I will be doing an engine swap for the fun of it eventually.) Anyways, I changed the oil, then went to change the air filter ( which of coarse wasn't the right size.) So I put the old one back in ( which wasn't to bad either way) and put everything back together. I went to start up the car, it starts up imediately without hesitation, idles around 1k for a second, then imediately dies off. I can do this over and over again and it doesn't change, can anyone elaborate? Let me know at yoyur earliest convenience, thanks

    Also, I just noticed, the corner lights are blinking ( like the hazards are on, but alot slower) on their own, no buttons are pushed or anything.

    Could be you dislodged a small chunk of something and it is affecting the reading of the mass air flow sensor, check your mass air flow sensor.

    make sure your all your hoses in your intake track are well connected.. ..the MAF sensor wont read properly if there isnt enough vac to pull air past it.

    Sounds like an electrical problem. Check your relays and the connections around where you were working.
