I own a 98 Auto shift, subaru forester turbo.
When I start the vehicle, it cranks up alright, but the idleling is below 5.0. The engine fails to catch properly, taking some 5-10 seconds. Sometimes when its parked early evening like yesterday, the engine goes off completely. When I ignite the engine the second time or the third, it works up all fine. I took it to my mechanic who did all the full service(Sparks, filters, oil) at a very expensive cost and the following morning the problem was still there. And then more. The car no longer has the boost given by the turbo. I have to floor the accelerator to get real power and there is a funny sound coming from the engine that you hear only when you are driving near a wall (because of echo back). Its a funny noise like a chain or something....and this is not funny.. Any ideas will be welcome....
