  1. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Hi! So I have a 2004 Outback. I got it as a gift from my grandma about 2 years ago. It has a lot of miles on it, though at the moment I don't know exactly how many as I am not directly in front of it. The whole time I've had it, the CEL has been on. The code is p0420, so the catalytic converter...

    Hello. My 2012 Subaru Outback has all of its sensor lights(check engine,oil, water radio) blinking on and off but drives fine. I brought it in to a local Subaru dealership and the person stated that it might be my transmission. My question is would all of the lights blinking be an indication of...

    Update: It was the Tumble Generator Valve I have a 2018 2.5i premium with eyesite. For the last two months I have been dealing with intermittent check engine lights that I THINK are related to my gas cap/evap sensor. Things started 4 hours in to a 5 hour drive, check engine light came on took...

    As the title says, my dash has symbols lighted for Vehicle Dynamic Control warning. The manual says this means the ABS system isn't operational but it doesn't indicate that manual braking is affected. And I have had no issues with my brakes since I noticed this light flashing on my way to the...

    Looking for someone with the knowledge and expertise I don't have. Starting late last year, my wife's 2014 Outback has been having a recurring/intermittent problem with a check engine light and associated trouble codes popping up.

    Hey there. I recently purchased a 2012 Subaru Forester from a dealer 3 weeks ago with 96000 miles on it. All was well until yesterday I sped up to pass someone on the highway and the check engine light, cruise control light and off road light all came on at the same time. Plugged in my OBD2...

    Figured I might as well start a thread on this one too if I'm here about the swaylinks. Two days before I took the car in to the dealer for them to tell me I should replace my whole new aftermarket sway bar with a stock one to fix my noise 🙄 I also picked up a CEL. Of course they wouldn't...

    Hi everyone I took my 2003 outback into my usual mechanic for P0420 codes and he replaced the Catalytic Converter. Check Engine light came back on only two days after, so I ran the codes and got P0420 again. I cleared them and chalked it up to the new CC needing a few days. I am not noticing...

    I have a 2004 Outback Legacy wagon with two fault codes creating a check engine light. The codes are P0400 (EGR A Flow) and P0031 (HO2S Heater Control Circuit Low (BANK 1 Sensor1)). I've been told to not worry about them -- the first time I took it in they cleared the codes for me and they came...

    Even after replacing the catalytic converter and 02 sensors, the problem returned within 3 months. The CEL is on whenever the car is running. If I disconnect the battery to reset it, the CEL comes back on somewhere between 75 and 90 miles of driving. Odd symptoms: when key is in “On” position...
