98 Forester OBD2 Drive Cycle?
Can anyone tell me where to find the OBD2 Drive Cycle for my 98 Forester?
About three weeks ago I spent time in my Forester with the A/C on, trying to get cool on a 100+ degree day. After several cool of visits, my car started idling badly and popped back a few times. That is when the engine light came on. What is also when I notices that my car was due for the annual emissions inspection. I took it for a drive and blew out the the carbon and it is back to running great as always. I figured the CEL would reset it's self after a period of normal driving.
After a week, the MIL was still lit, so I bought an ODB2 tester and found that the CEL was from a back fire (no big surprise). But apparently those do not clear themselves, so I did a manual reset.
Now I have been driving for several days, and there are still two systems that have not completed their test cycles; the Catalytic Converter, and the Evap. system. I need to get my car emissions tested so I don't get a ticket. Does anyone know where I can find the OBD2 Drive Cycle for my 98 Forester? I have tries searching for it but can't seem to find it.
