So yesterday afternoon I filled up with gas before getting on 95 north from Beverly MA. Driving down secondary roads making my way to 95 I notice my car is idling like crap. It is almost stalling at every light. My first thoughts, I got bad gas...damn it!
Get on the highway for a drive back home. Going through the 95 north tolls in hampton, I am pulling through third and I swear my car goes into limp mode. Can bad gas do that?..maybe. I finally get home and pop the hood, to my dismay the freakin air filter is completely off the intake tube (SPT intake). I put the thing back on, tighten it as much as I think I can before the tube cracks, and start it back up. Idle holds fine.
So this morning I am driving back down 95 south, pulling through 3rd after hampton tolls and it was better but I still felt some hesitation. Should I reset the ECU? (neg terminal off and press brake pedal right?)
Anyways, lesson learned. If you think theres something wrong, pull the heck over and look !
oh btw car = 06 wrx tr (SPT intake, turbo & intake shield, cat back SPT)
