My 2004 wrx wagon wouldn't start up this morning. Here are the symptoms.
- @ 30 degrees F outside
- car started up on my first try, but after about 20 seconds, the idle was rough and then the car stalled.
- successive tries were unsuccessful, with a flashing CEL while the engine was turning over.
- low fuel light on with gauge almost at zero, so I added two gallons (91 octane) from a gas can... but the same problem persisted (and the gas light is still on, and the gauge doesn't appear to have moved).
- I managed to get the car to start once more (with no CEL while the engine was running), but again it stalled after about 10 seconds.
Background info: A week ago, I took to car for a 1000 mile trip... then the car sat for about a week while I was in NY for thanksgiving. Also, I have a Cobb Stage 2 reflash with uppipe and TBE.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Joe
