2005 Subaru Outback LL Bean - Shaky Idle
Posted 10 March 2005 - 04:58 PM
I recently purchased a 2005 Subaru Outback LL Bean with the 3.0 litre 250 hp engine. I have taken the car back twice for the idle to be checked to no avail. The car shakes most noticably when in park and less so when in drive and at a stop. The dealer's electronic/computer expert has looked at the car in-depth twice and found no problems - the engine and idle are all running within normal ranges. The service advisor (to appease my worries) sat in 2 other '05 LL Bean's and said they also had a slight stumble in idle. I am very disappointed considering this is a V6 engine (and should run very smooth as compared with other Japanese engines) and considering the car was over 30K. I am planning on installing a K&N air filter this week...HAS ANYBODY ENCOUNTERED SUCH A PROBLEM AND HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS???
Perplexed Outback Owner....

Not to be unsympathetic to your problem, but it is not a V-6 engine -- it is a horizontally opposed engine. It is my understanding that they tend to be "rougher" than a V-type design, but I could be mistaken.
