Hi everyone. Need help.. Please. Recently bought a 2011 impreza with a 1.5 litre engine and with 78000 kilometers on it. Car runs great, except for LTFT around 9 to 10, 15 ignition timing and worst part is I get around 10mpg / 5.5 kmpl. A full tank of fuel only gets around 300 kilometers. LTFT at idle is close to 10 and goes down to about 7 when AC is turned on. When driving, LTFT is around 2 to 4, goes to 0 when accelerated to around 2000rpm at idle. Checked for vacuum leaks, (found none) smoke tested it too. checked and clean EGR valve, cleaned MAF Sensor, (which reads around 2.2 to 2.5 at idle with ac off, around 3 with ac on. Rpm at idle is smooth and around 650 with ac off and around 850 with ac turned on. Fuel flow shows around 0.8 liters per hour with ac off at idle and around 1.7 liters per hour with ac on. Reset ecu (removed negative terminal and left off for about an hour, 10 mins run, switch off, run 5 mins, switch off, etc) lambda sensor shows value of 1.0 at idle and voltage of around 2.2 Please help guys.. At wits end and have no clue what's going on. There is a slight hesitation off the line when accelerating but starts pulling hard around 2000 to 3000 Rpm. Strong exhaust smell, not necessarily a fuel smell but a stinging kind of smell. Any ideas anyone? Any advice would be very helpful and very highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Hey all, looking for some advice besides the usual nay-sayers that will always offer the usual buy a WRX. This is out of the question unfortunately. As the title suggests I just bought a 2005 Forester EJ20 XT and im looking to engine swap into my daily 2008 Impreza 1.5r Hatchback non turbo. I have both complete running and driving cars and aim to sell the rest of the forester and my 1.5 engine and gearbox to help fund the project as I go. I have space and some tools but will need to hire an engine crane, anything else specialist etc. I do also have connections with friends and a couple local workshops/garages I can quote to help me but i'm still debating just how much of this I want to take in myself. I did study automotive mechanics at college for 3 years but have no real experience with a project of this size. Please let me know any advice you'd have for a first timer and any advisory maintenance I should look into pricing for "while it's out anyway" lol. Would love to find a similar conversion or comparable build that's been done I could use for information but I haven't found much so far on NASIOC, even with the popularity of the hatchback in the USA Cheers in advance guys. Pics of Both cars and the EJ engine should be attached.
Hi there. Recently replaced my old Yaris winter runaround with a very low miles (32k), 2007, 1.5 Impreza R .... Clean, tidy, like new in fact and drives remarkably well. Always maintain cars myself within reason, so will no doubt be after tips etc as time goes by. > Best oil / filter option by example > if someone could respond with a copy / pasted link to the no doubt "done to death / which oil / filter?" thread that infests all car and bike forums I've ever visited and being a member of cheers in advance Karlos
