ah k, something has changed them, could be crank sensor but could be alot of other things :(

 

Can you get it to a specialist for a diagnosis? (and i dont just mean computer says jobbie)

Ive had it plugged in it came up with no codes thats why im so confused thanks for the reply

Won't always throw up codes, that's why you need a specialist. My car had a misfire but no codes and turned out to be a duff leed.

Cheers ill have to look up a local specialist .i assumed my model doest have leeds with it haveing 4 coil packs rather than the single like the classics

yeah different setup. doesnt meaa one of them might not be duff though

They shud be fine i replaced all 4 with genuine subaru ones from importcarparts this car has me totally stumped off to a specialist it goes (when i find one 😣) but on the other had ive ordered a new crank posistion sensor so fingers crossed 🖒 just removed my crankshaft sensor under the alternator and it has a small dent in it could this be whats causes my issues

Crank /cam sensor faults normally throw up a code . Having a different turbo and more than stock boost it should've been mapped  (fuel adjusted to suit the extra air ) . 

Do you know if it has been mapped ? 

If not and it was running ok , have you recently reset the ecu or disconnected the Battery

As the ecu might have "learnt" the mods  to protect the engine and a reset would take it back to factory map .

Cheers for the reply id say its definately been mapped its ran well for the last 12 months and yes the Battery has been disconected a few times clutch head gaskets etc its a confusing one

So just an update replaced crank sensor still the same 🤔so its off to adgespeed tuesday hopefully they can figure it out..thinking now it could be fuel related fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator or maybe both or maybe the timeing has skipped a tooth god knows hopefully they get to the bottom off it
