Having problems with your Subaru Outback ?

I own a 97 subaru legacy outback that worked fine until my friend filled up the tank with 93 octane. After this the car would keep stalling. It starts fine but after a few seconds it would shut off. If I hit the gas pedal to try and keep it running it will hesitate and then the engine will die. Any help would be appreciated.

Answers :

  • Your vehicle does not need that high of Octane fuel but the fuel itself should not make it bog out. When is the last time you had a tune up plugs, wires, the whole 9 yards?
  1. Check to make sure the gas cap is on good and tight.
  2. \015\012
  3. Check your air filter and replace if necessary.
  4. \015\012
  5. Check under the hood to see if a vacuum hose knocked itself loose.
  6. \015\012
  7. Perform a full tuneup if it has been a couple years since the last one.
  8. \015\012
  9. The 02 sensor may be malfunctioning as well. Test and or replace it.
