2011 outback stalling and p2096 code

Recommended Posts

Hey y'all i have a new customer with a 2011 outback( 2.5 n/a engine). 

Customer is having issues with intermittent stalling ( car starts right back up ). 

Car also has a p2096 code that the customer says has been on for "awhile"

I cleaned the throttle body as this is the main issue ive seen with the drive by wire engines stalling/running poorly. 

It wasnt that dirty compared to some that i've seen.

Any thoughts as what to attack next?

Clear the P2096 code.

Does it come back immediately?  Or does it come back after the stalling problem?  Or...?

Check the knock sensor. If it has any cracks in the body, replace it.

Wife was driving our 95 and randomly the engine would shut off and she would pull over and stop, and the engine would start right up and work fine the rest of the day. Then it started to happen more often.

I found that answer here years ago.

sorry for the delay the customer was out of town.. 

I turned the CEL light off and am waiting to see if the code and stalling are related. 

I havent inspected the exhaust but its not loud or making any exhaust leak noises.
