Hello All,

So in my 2011 WRX wagon with 120k, I’ve got a misfire code P0301 and rough idle with roughness counts in the cylinder, will occasionally stall dropping to idle from load, especially when cold. We’ve done/checked the following:

  • all spark plugs new <15k miles
  • new MAF, cleaned
  • new injectors cyl 1 & 3
  • new coil pack cyl 1
  • seafoam through gas tank
  • dealer induction cleaning service
  • soldering in wiring harness fixed
  • ground wire near cyl 1 replaced
  • compression test good - tested multiple times over ~2-3k miles
  • leakdown test good

Next thing my shop was thinking was egr valve or intake/tgv gaskets for that cyl bank. Anyone here have any ideas? I checked the misfire pinned thread and it looks like we’ve tried just about everything. Trying to avoid engine-out or head rebuild, compression/leak down tests all being good points away from that direction.

Any help you all can provide is greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

Check the intake for leaks

If it is one cylinder, i'd put a new plug in. Cheap test to ensure that one plug is not the cause.
