Does the car run at all?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.


yes but stall on me for every few mile and than is hard to start back up

Expert:  Kevin C. replied 1 year ago.
It stalls when you stop at a light or stop sign, won't idle??
Also, there are no other codes at all??
Customer: replied 1 year ago.


yes when the car almost come to a full stop, than stalls and there are no other code

 

Expert:  Kevin C. replied 1 year ago.
Ok, this is your Torque converter in your transmission not releasing, causing the car not to disengage from the transmission at idle in gear, which is the corresponding P0725 code.
Let me check the Subaru data Base for any bulletins on this code but if you go with the trouble shooting chart for this code (attached) based on no other codes, you need a new TCM (Transmission Control Computer) Give me a few minutes to check for Bulletins..be right back.

Ok, there are no other bulletins regarding this issue. Before you replace the TCM, I would try 2 things first..Disconnect , then re-connect the connector on the TCM, making sure you have a good connection. The TCM is next to the steering column under the dash (see pic) If that did not help, I recommend a good transmission flush, you may have something clogging the valve body causing the converter to hang up as well. Then if you still have issues, proceed to the TCM replacement. Start from the easiest and cheapest steps and work your way up.

How many camshaft sensor does 2.5 gt legacy have ? Is one or two ?
Expert:  Kevin C. replied 1 year ago.

If your car is a Turbo..2 one on each bank..#1 is the right side sensor (passenger side)

I did check for any updates there is a TCM update for a reoccuring code P0771 but none for P0725.
