  1. Hello all, I purchased myself a 2006 Subaru Forester XT. It is absolutely beautiful. 111,000 miles on it (for £3200, I'm happy). 😁 Today whilst I was driving it back from town, I pulled off the roundabout, chucked it in 2nd and put my foot to the floor. It hit 3000revs and then I felt the turbo kick in hard, then it sort of briefly stopped giving me power, for like <0.5 a second. This was immediately followed by a sudden lunch of all the power at once and it quickly got up to redline and that was that. 😨 The trade seller had told me the throttle body was recently replaced and I am wondering whether this could be at fault? This is my first turbo car, so unsure where to begin diagnosing. The only last tidbit of info I can give is that if you rev it hard, there is a smell of petrol that gets into the cabin. Does anyone have some suggestions? 😟 thank you :)
  2. Hi guys, I'm new to this forum so forgive me if I posted this into the wrong category :) I've got an issue with my wrx from 2006, when hitting around 2k rpm, the car is very hesitant when accelerating and doesn't go further than that even when putting the foot down. I went to the garage and they said the variable valve timing is incorrect, but what I think is that this might be caused by a knock sensor, this previously happened and after cleaning the knock sensor it worked again. Now I want to ask, should I have the vvt issue investigated further, or could this even be causing the issue? Thanks, Piri
  3. Hi, I've got an ongoing issue with my 93 WRX import with flatspots/hesitation in the power delivery. I've changed the MAF from a working car and tried a working knock sensor of another car but after an ECU reset I am still getting code 22 through the check engine light and still have the hesitation. I have took a reading of 5 volts from the connector the knock sensor plugs into on mine but on a working Impreza (94 wagon import) and that only shows 3 volts on the same connector. Is my higher voltage causing the circuit to indicate an error and the ECU to change the fueling - hence the loss of power and flatspots etc? What is the voltage the Knock sensor circuit should be running at? Could a short in the wiring cause the high voltage? Or am I looking in the wrong place and the engine is just knackered?

  5. Hi, my 93 WRX import has been running a rough idle and hesitation for a while now without any engine light coming on. Last week the engine light finally triggered and using the connectors under the dash I managed to get code 22 out of it which I believe is the knock sensor. I took the old sensor out and it has 2 or 3 cracks through the plastic so I can safely assume its pretty terminal. Over the weekend I picked up a 2nd hand knock sensor from a Subaru breakers as I wanted to try and get the job done yesterday. Fitted it but it appears to make no difference, still got rough idle and engine light on the dash. I tried hooking up the diagnostic connectors under the dash again in an attempt to reset the ECU but this was still flashing up as code 22. I have checked the voltage on the wire that the knock sensor plugs into and I'm getting 5 volts. When the knock sensor is plugged in I only get about 3 volts from the metal off the bottom of it. So my question well questions are is that a normal reading? Should the voltage drop like that or is the sensor I picked up no good? Have I missed something with the ECU reset? Do I need to unhook the battery for 24 hours or is there an easier and quicker way to do it? I am nowhere near an electrician but trying to learn the tricks as I go along so any help, hints, tips, kick in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
