Have Subaru Questions? Ask a Subaru Mechanic and Get Answers ASAP
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required.
Are you getting any codes?
Try stopping by the local auto parts store and see if they can do a scan for you
Yeah just whenever you can, if im not on ill get the message and send a reply when I get back online,
Hopefully its just a crankshaft sensor and not a timing problem, you say it does run though right and when it runs its ok?
ok so next step is to do some tests with a multimeter and how are your electrical schematic reading and troubleshooting abilities? I can send you some flow charts?
Just be super careful if your going to drive it if is a internal issue and it goes bad it could cause a ton of damage.
Customer satisfaction is my number one goal. Giving me a 5 star rating would be appreciated very much .You can do this rating at the box on the upper right hand corner. This will not close our chat session and at no extra charge we will still be able to talk about any other issues you may have for free! Providing a rating is the only way I will receive credit for my work with you.
We would check to see if the crank sensor was working properly to see if further engine diagnostics need to be done. after that we would have to take of the front to check the timing system for damage
