Well, my 01 is exhibiting these symptoms, so I pulled the pump to give it a check, and mine was fine, bummer, that would've been too easy.
I pulled the cap off to check the condition of the o-ring anyways, it was fine as well.
I did want to pass on one tip for getting the cap back on. Petroleum jelly (vaseline).
I put a very thin coating of petroleum jelly on the O-ring (totally safe for your fuel system in case you're wondering, i always use it on fuel injector o-rings as well), put the o-ring back on the plastic part and then the cap slid on without much difficulty and without kinking itself. I also put a slight amount of PJ on the inner part of the cap to help it all slide together.

|Boise Jim||Just realized I might be able repair it with fiberglass resin after I searched online for repair ideas. Anyone see any problem with that? Really don't want to spend a few hundred for a new assembly.|

Sonuvabitch! When pulling the hoses off my fuel pump assembly, one of the plastic nipples cracked.
Anyone out there have just the assembly part they would like to sell?
This is going to be one expensive screw up...
At least my o-ring was shot, so I need to replace that.

I'd say likely unrelated.
most folks struggle with the P0420 code, can be as simple as an exhaust leak, bad wiring , bad rear sensor, etc. Can be complex A:F ratio problem.

what is the code again? should be P followed by 4 numbers (like P0420)
if there is a cracked tab on the metal cap - you will need to order that too.

hello everybody!! im new to the forum and to subarus. I have this 00 legacy that has the rought start issue, it only starts right up when i prime the fuel pump a few times, my old fuel pump died, and i have replaced the fuel filter. Im sure this has to do with the infamous o ring, i just order the pk from Amazon, my question is....Did you guys get the P040 code when the oring was bad??
I have been struggling with this code, I cant pass emissions, and I wonder if these 2 issues are related.
