  1. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Hi all, Apologies for hoping to get spoon fed a bit. If somebody could point me in the right direction, I'd appreciate it. (I'm a broke newbie DIYer who bought a lemon Subaru.) Original engine burnt up, and I got a replacement engine installed. The replacement engine, it should mention...
  2. FA20DIT - 2.0L Direct-Injection/Turbo (2014-2018)
    I wanted to gather some info, tips and tricks on how fellow members maintain these engines. I have 110k miles on the car so far. To help control the carbon here's what I've done: oil changes every 6000k miles, catch can on the pcv to intake, crc turbo cleaner every other oil change, started...
  3. EE20 - 2.0L Diesel
    My forester, a 2011 with 156k km on the clock whines in neutral when idling after cold start, aswell as whining when driving normally, i dont know about the idling problem, but i think the sound when driving could be something drivetrain related, perhaps a diff or the gearbox? anyone got any...
  4. FB25DI - 2.5L Non-Turbo Direct Injection (2019+)
    Hi all! I got a '21 Forester Limited, I absolutely love the car. I do have a strange noise which I'm curious if it's normal or something to be concerned about. I've tried to do my research in ironing down the circumstances on when it happens, but found very little online that appears to be a...
  5. FB25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (2011- 2018)
    I've got a a 2012 Forester (140k miles) with the typical slow oil leaks, and general signs of age. Recently I've noticed a sort of shudder or hiccup, it feels like a slow rev up for 1-2 seconds, when I'm stopped at a stoplight or in park. Based on what my mechanic told me, it sounds like maybe...
  6. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Hi all, (2005 2.0x MT) On my way home, coasting downhill or just before corners and stops when I would put my foot on the clutch engine would slow down to usual 750rpm and then suddenly surge to 2000rpm and stay stable even though the accelerator is not being touched. But when coming to a...
  7. EJ25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (1998-2010)
    I have a 2010 5sp manual Forester with around 128k miles on it. Just recently I’ve noticed an issue with my idle when coming to stop. To start, the car idles fine. It idles around 700-1000 normally and the engine sounds fine. When I start to drive it acts normal and sounds fine. The problem...
  8. EE20 - 2.0L Diesel
    Pretty sure I'm getting to the bottom of my rough idle problem, but I have wandered down the YouTube rabbit hole... Is the idle re-learn something that works on the EE20? Thanks! Scott
  9. FA20DIT - 2.0L Direct-Injection/Turbo (2014-2018)
    I have a 18 FXT and this is the first Subaru and first H style engine vehicle I have owned. I was at a stop light and the idle fell and the engine died. I restarted it and everything was fine. I am not sure what normal idle is? -Idle when in drive is 500 RPM -I use premium fuel -61xxx miles
  10. FORESTER - Luv it; Like it; tell us your story
    2016 Forester 2.5L Touring (non-turbo) currently with 60400 miles on it. The car was running fine until about 1000 miles ago then about 5 miles after getting gas the check engine light came on. It was a solid light with the eyesight/safety features disabled, and it read P0300 on a code reader...
  11. Lighting and Electrical
    So my forester for the past couple weeks has been misfiring at idle with no CE light. At first, I thought it was because I skipped a carbon cleaning (I do a crc turbo treatment every other oil change) as it has the same symptoms of excess carbon. But it recently has gotten so bad where it...
  12. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    I bought a '04 Forester XT 4AT a couple months that wouldn't really idle. There was no check engine codes, if I remember right, at the time I got it. I proceeded to change plugs and do simple troubleshooting, and nothing fixed it. Naturally, I decided to pull the engine. All the exhaust valves...
  13. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Hello, I have gotten my 2015 Forester XT about 4 months ago, overall I love and enjoy the car. I traded in my 2015 Scion FRS (Auto) for the Forester so there was a decent jump in "Smile" level and overall enjoyment. However there is one odd thing I noticed with the Forester. Sometimes, after...
