just burns my nuggets to have to replace a fuel injector at only 62k miles... especially when its 15 degrees outside..
BTW.. if you have one of these layin around, i really need one asap:-\

Have you checked the voltage at the injector?
I have some 98 2.5 injectors, don't know if they are the same or not

don't have a volt meter.. guess i need to go get one today :-\

does it always do it - cold and warm?
did you use Subaru ignition wires?
maybe you (or car!) has bad gas?
i highly doubt it's a fuel injector.

Moved to CO??
If it's clicking no need for a noid or a multimeter.
I'd check the compression on that cyl.
PITA I know
But it could be carbon build up on the valves.
Might get lucky with some Seafoam.

well i've already ruled out bad gas, i ran it half missing until the fuel light came on, then filled it with super.. made no difference.. pulled the fuel filter and drained it into a glass jar to make sure there was no water in it..
i can pull the wires (still factory) from the coil pack or the engine while its running an visually watch a nice blue spark over 2 inches long arc.. makes no difference if i swap wires with another cylinder.
check engine light always comes on, and code is always cyl 4 misfire..
and again, its only got 62k on it.. and its had seafoam run through when we drove it 1700 miles in one sitting in august..

a $30 set of wires from autozone and she's good as new..
still bugs me that a plug wire goes bad in 60k miles.. :/
