im cutting out in 4th and fifth gear when i get on it... need help
i got a 05 with 90k and when i get into 4th and fifth gear if i floor it, it kinda stalls for a second and recatches itself and keeps going, its real real weird. i hit 22 pounds of boost which is max and it is like the car cuts out in between 3-4000 rpms and then regains itself
Um, 22 PSI is a lot on the car if it's a stock block, but if it's holding boost, I'd direct you to something related to the ignition like a coil pack or fouled spark plug. I'm not positive about that but that would be the first thing I'd check. Hopefully it's not an injector because at that boost rang that'll quickly wear a hole in a piston or blow your ring lands from running extremely lean. The fact that it picks back up on the power is why I would direct you to ignition related problems. It's possible that your computer is throwing up something weird too, but that's not as self-diagnosable.
thanks man ill look at it for sure. it is a stock block but i have a chip in it. when i say it recatches itself i mean it stalls and then picks back to where it was and then will slowly start to speed up. it doesnt happen really if i just gently work my way up in 4th and 5th, only when i floor it. i was thinking it might be an injector too thats why it sucks that you picked up on it. but if it isnt stalling when i ease through 4th and 5th but does when i floor it, do you think its still might be ignition or spark plugs... or are you thinking injector? thanks
I was sort of thinking somewhere along the same lines. The problem is I just bought the car and i dont know what kind of chip it has. I havent checked the spark plugs but i dont think it is that and I dont know the history of the coilpack but I dont think they are going bad on me either. Ive had a bad coil before but it was a different sort of reaction that the wrx is giving me then this. I really dont think it is an injector problem either. So a boost cut could make since but why would it only to that in high gears. I feel like if it had a boost cut that it would react the same way when i hit full boost in first thru third at WOT.
