    Hello fellas,

    Nick here, have a 2011 wrx wagon. Absolutely love the car. I have been seeing some issues lately (no mods this my daily driver, keep the 68 mustang for all that fun stuff). Ive been working on cars for a while, but mostly rest-mods and such, first venture into the world not turbo 4s, not more tunning carbs through sound car makes anymore i guess.

    I truthfully bought this car to avoid spending my weekends working on it. But I have seen the same 2 codes come up and the dealer has basically telling me its 1500 bucks to guess what the problem is without exactly being sure what caused the issue.

    Codes
    P0301 and P0303 cylinder missfire.

    Dealer did roughness test, slight roughness in both cylinders (~1-2%). cleared codes and set if it comes back then they will have to take the motor apart for 1500 with hopes that all it needs is a valve job

    Car has 54K on it, going to change plugs, etc as per the 60K major service. Any other suggestions?

    Thanks in advance.

    I feel you with not wanting to work on it. My car has been on the road for a long time now and it requores a little more of attention from me. But yours is still pretty young, it must be frustrating. I hope it's nothing major!

    Check this thread out, maybe it can give you a little more perspective than what the dealer told you.

    This was exactly what I asked the service manager. They said that they could not determine that it fell under the warranty unless they did a tear down (1500 bucks), but if they didnt find anything (like a burnt valve) that the cost was on me. Basically his and the tech said wait until I do the 60K service (plugs etc) and see if it happens again. I did the plugs yesterday and cleaned the MAF today. I am hoping someone can help me with how to clean use the mopar combustion chamber cleaner. I havent been able to determine if I should take the IC off and spray directly into the TB or use a vacumn line. I can get the IC off but I truthfully dont feel comforatble running the car (even at idle without the IC on to use the spray. if anyone has ideas that would be great.
