Need help: idiot previous owner
I bought a used 2002 WRX from a dealership out of Houston. They said the car was Modified. So i went to look at and all i saw was a short shifter, an air/fuel meter, a blue intake tube, and a hacked airbox. Well after i bought it the day i was supposed to pick it up the guy said the CEL came on and it was a bad O2 sensor. I got it and everything was fine. Then i was going on the onramp to the highway WOT in third and it feels like fuel cut and at that same instant the CL comes back on. ( Oh by the way i had the vehicle shipped to germany for before the CEL came on, i am stationed here) So now it runns like crap in 3rd 4th and 5th, but okay in 1st, and 2nd. I took it to the dealership and he put the code reader up to it (in german) and it said something about the 2nd, and 3rd cylinders not firing right. And it had a code about the boost controller. So i look under the hood and ### before me put a damn MBC on there, AND THERE IS ONLY THE FACTORY BOOST GAUGE. Does anybody have any ideas. The dealership said it could be bad plugs, or something of that nature.
