2015 Subaru Forester 2.5i 200 miles From a stop at an intersection making a right or left turn; I give the throttle gas to proceed. I get as far as to the center of the intersection then the engine will go to idle and I coast to about the center of the intersection. Even if I press the throttle pedal all the way the RPMs stay at idle. This condition will last for two or three seconds then everything will go back to normal and I continue. This has happen five or six times so far. The last time I noticed the “Hill start assist” warning indicator light came on for about two seconds. At no time did the engine die. This condition happens maybe once every 50 to 100 intersection turns.
I think this is related to problem #1. When starting from a stop the engine will stumble a few times until I reach 20 MPH or so. This happens more often than problem #1.
