Hi, I have a '03 Impreza St. Yesterday the AC stopped working. It drove just fine so I checked it after I got home. The belt broke. I got a new one, and the alternator belt and was gonna replace them tonight after work. On the way to work this morning it was running really rough, bucking, misfiring, no acceleration. Same thing all the way home. Wasn't sure I'd make it home. The CEL came on so I checked the codes... 341, 302, 303, 304. 341 says it's the cam shaft sensor. since the engine ran fine until I pulled the old belt off I wondered if I disconnected that. As near as I can tell it's just below the dipstick, and still connected.
JA: How old is the battery
? How many miles are on the car?
Customer: Battery is a couple years old. Not sure on the mileage.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yes. All I've done is look at the cam shaft connector, and get the engine ready for the new belts. The AC idler is seized so I still have that to buy.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: Not that I can think of. The car was running perfectly before this.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Subaru Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
