06 wrx car problems

Postby Anniewrx » Sat Jul 15, 2017 11:53 am

Ok where to start. I love my wrx but its doing my head in 2wks ago it started turning over but not starting so did the crank n cam sensor.

It was still doing it so i sent it to mechanic he did the fuel pump it started 5 times then started the turn over but not starting again. I only use good fuel.

Put it on the diagnostic machine n no codes are coming up. My next move is FPR. ANY IDEAS PLEASE.

Go back to basics, fuel, spark, timing. Timing can't really suddenly change so that leaves fuel and spark. check spark at plugs. spark =yes move to fuel. spark = no look to leads, coils etc.
fuel =yes look to spark fuel=no look to fuel filter fuel pump relay etc.

Thank you so much for replying.

Im thinking it has to be spark but i do teach myself all my car stuff :D . Fuel is good had mechanic test all that. Im buying spark plugs and leads today anyway. I just dont want to wreck her.

Would it be silly to do that battery as well. After trying to start it, it seems flat. I have a sub n amp that i think is affecting the car as well.

so its cranking but not firing? and you've replaced the crank and cam sensors? then your mechanic replaced the fuel pump and it started then stopped? have you got an OBD scanner? maybe crank and see what sensors aren't activating as in air flow sensor?

basics man, give us more information. Does it have spark when you crank it? Does it have fuel pressure pumping into the engine? put in the D check and feel the fuel hoses in the engine bay. Need more info brother!

Okay ill start from the start. I started it it ran sheet n stalled n when i started it again it had a wierd popping sound. Went to start it the next morning n it would turn over but not start.

I did the crank n cam sensor. It was still doing it so i dropped it at the mechanic. He did the fuel pump. N it was still doing it so i took it back n watched him check for fuel n its getting fuel.

He said to do spark plugs so i bought them yest and yet to do them.

I also put a new battery in yesterday and its starting first time everytime but still going to do spark plugs.

Now it has this pungent smell when i drive it short distances. It was put on a diagnostic machine n no codes came up.

Ps im a women who loves cars and working on them. I just find this car hard to figure out haha

As others have said, I would be getting the alarm looked at, where are you located ? There are plenty of good Subaru specialists throughout Melbourne, most will be able to remove the Brant if it is faulty
