    Update with more info-


    changed fuel filter, 2 weeks ago and changed fuel lines at dealership about 4 months ago- all fuel lines.

    so far- fuel lines, filter, sparks and coilpacks all changed and check engine STILL ON!

    Drove today and check engine light just turned off and stayed off... am so confused on what too do.

    if it's telling you multiple cylinders are misfiring, i suggest bringing it to the subaru dealership instead of throwing countless parts at it without actually diagnosing it.

    i had the exact same problem, turned out the ECU just needed to be reprogrammed, took all of a half hour to fix. i had misfires on cylinder 1,3, and 4.

    Nothing. Do nothing. You no longer have a CEL. Ideally this is because the requisite number of cycles and/or hours of operation without a fault detected have passed.
