I have a 2004 Subaru Impreza witch I’ve been told has a misfire but just wondering what could be the problem I’ve tried spark plugs and ignition coil but still has the problem so I got a scanner for the car and it’s shows that this is the problem but Don’t know what this means
Hello everyone! My names Ken and i recently bought a used Subaru Legacy 2008 (Petrol Powered, 110Kw) Estate car a month ago as my first car! When i bought it it had about 241,000 KM done on it but i've been driving around it and testing its limits and its done quite well for me. I have a colleague who's driven all kinds of Subaru's and she told me - "Once you Subaru, it will take your hands and legs and never let go". That is certainly the case with mine, i never ever want to go back to anything else :) I live outside of the main city where i am, and to own a competant "4 Wheel drive" car has certainly been my main goal after driving a harsh winter with my previous front wheel powered Opel. Altough i've developed some questions and i hope that you may be of help to me. The main question actually comes from the gearbox. I've noticed that sometimes the first gear doesn't want to go in very smoothly and when i switch from second to third gear then i feel a slight crackle of the gear wheels when putting from neutral to the third (or sometimes to the fourth gear). Is this something normal? When i bought the car then the previous owner told me he had the gearbox recently maintained, but since i haven't driven many cars, i don't know if its a "Subaru thing" or not. Another thing i noticed is when i try to reverse. After having the first gear in, the reverse gear doesn't really want to go in at all, it's only after i release the clutch and set it to neutral i can put the reverse gear in and goes smoothly. But these problems tend to go away after my first 15 min. of driving, so i don't know how to react. The other question is - At what revs do you usually switch gears, because i've seen completely different opinnions from one owner to another. Since i want to take Very very very good care of this car, then any advice in regards to owning my first car and owning my first Subaru would be much appreciated. Thank you. A proud new owner of a Subaru, Ken
