Hello

My wife has a Subaru Forester (2001) petrol engine (2.0).

The engine management light has come indicating something is wrong. The car is now running like a dog, and drinks petrol.

Last time this was traced to a sensor ( catalyst sensor ?) and required its replacement (the sensor) and a heat shiled re-welding in place. This cost me nearly 400 pounds, ( I was away on business at the time, so couldn't do anything).

Is there a fault diagnosis process for fault finding engine management problems in Forestors ? If it requires welding, then thats something I can't do, but replacing engine sensors I can do.

Cheers

Possible front O2 sensor. Have a shop pull codes for you. On the other side of the pond, most parts stores will tell you the codes for free.:raspberry:

You need the fault codes.....a generic OBD code reader will tell you the code then we can help!

There is no such thing as a catalyst sensor, Exhaust gas temperature or Oxygen sensors are both in the exhaust but neither should have cost £400!
