Hi all,
recently became the owner of a used 2008 Subaru Forester( manual , just under 100,000kms). I’ve had the car for less than a month and I’ve recently had an issue with the engine starting up in the morning. It has incredible shakes and then the check engine light will come on, followed by the car turning off.
I’ll leave it off for about 2 minutes hoping it recovers and then it happens again but usually on the second try it will rumble quite a bit and get on the road driving. I’ll usually drive about 3-5 minutes before it then returns to normal and as if nothing is wrong with it.

Taken it too a mec and with a full service it the codes that are being displayed don’t seem to match the issues happening.
Any help is much appreciated?

what was the previous service history for the car?

has the timing belt been replaced?

what are the error codes?

what components have been replaced: prior to ownership; during full service; or since ownership?
