    Problems, Maintenance, and Warranty
    I got my Fozzy in September '17 and starting having this bizarre issue where the engine heat sensor goes from normal temps, to almost in the red, and then sometimes the needle is all the way as far as it can go. And then a moment later it's back to the mid-line. I talked to a Subaru specialist...

    EJ20 - 2.0L Turbocharged
    Short story: 2004 EJ205 Forester 2.0 Turbo will now hardly pull at all below 3500RPM, and I am struggling even to increase the RPM when flooring the throttle. I achieve increased RPM eventually by pumping the throttle. See this video: In the beginning of the video I simply press the gas pedal...
