99 impreza power loss
Posted 19 July 2017 - 02:31 PM
It definitely has a lack of power at times. If I try, I can find the sweet spot with the gas pedal and it does great. A little to much or not enough and it loses power. If I floor it, it will kick in and run fine. It does this in all gears.
I put a new fuel filter on it, because it was easy, but no change.
Any help would be great.

Are there any CEL Codes?
The mass airflow sensor could be going out.

scan for codes as said
possible exhaust blockage or knock sensor - but any codes will be important

I did scan it and check live data and noticed my tps is flat lined at 0 while idling. I loosened it to adjust it and no change at all. Still 0. I am going to put a new one in tomorrow.
I have noticed now that this lack of power only happens after driving for about 45 minutes. For the first 30-45 minutes it runs perfect.

some sensors require a 5v reference I think - maybe something is killing that line after it gets hot?

i'd go with a new knock sensor first. They fail ALL THE TIME
These motors are consistently tappy sounding. No need getting scared off by what could be normal chatter of a subaru.

sure the feeling of power loss isn't a sticking brake caliper or some other dirveline issue?

I'm still suggesting mass air flow sensor. They are known for causing the engine to periodically become gutless and even stall out without throwing a code.
Intermittent fuel pump would be number 2 on my list. I chased one all over the place trying to find why it bogged down on hills until I could actually hear the pump whirring, then I knew for sure. They are cheap and easy to grab from a junkyard. I think $10 put me back on the road that time.
At least you know that first motor is good. Now you've got a spare.

Shitty part is, car ran great for a couple days and I just finished moving to a new place with no shop, so I scrapped the other motor

Www.car-part.com or post in parts wanted here.
2. When it does it again pull the fuel hose and crank. If it flows like a hose the pump is fine. If it trickles out you found your issue.

I had a scanner hooked to it today and was watching live data while driving around. I (think) all looked well, but I no tires 1 thing odd. The line labeled fuel sys1 was bouncing back and forth between clsd and open1.
Does anyo me know if that is normal or should it stay one way or the other.
It would change all the time, car was comepletly warm and it would do it while I was giving it gas or not.
