Yea I just went out and bought my self a obd 2 scanner and it came up a camshaft positioning sensor. I would never guessed that really thanks everyone for ur opinons. Yea first forum I ever been on where someone wasnt a ass hole. Love the Subaru community
whoa - while it could be a bad/intermittent sensor or it's wiring/connector, uh, I'm pretty sure that sensor's output is compared to the cam sensor and, if they disagree, it might mean slipped timing. That could get worse if not investigated soon. very weird

Did you clear the code? did it return immediately?
