rough idle

  1. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    I am a new Forester owner - owned several Nissans over the past 15 years (370Z, Murano, Altima, Maxima). I just bought a used 2013 Forester 2.5X Touring (As-Is, so no dealer warranty) a couple of months ago. The car drove fine and everything seemed normal at first. But, over the past 10 days...

    Hey guys, this last week I replaced the motor in my 06 forester with an EOM short block from Subaru and had my heads rebuilt and adjusted by a machine shop. I replaced the timing components, water pump, oil pump, clutch, sparkplugs and a few other things. So the car runs great now, besides a...

I got it from a street-corner car-flipper who is generally a nice guy, but in it to flip cars. Regardless, there has been more...
  5. EE20 - 2.0L Diesel
    Hi! Thanks for taking a look... I wasn't sure if the belt tensioner is the problem here, or just a rough idle. I have a bunch of lights illuminated on the dash, having those checked for codes tomorrow morning. Otherwise the car runs great. So if I need to replace the worn parts- any idea if...
  6. 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...
