So, today my DD 2005 WRX died and the CEL (p0244) & oil light came on, all 3 at about the same time.
From what I understand, P0244 is from overboost, so it makes sense that the fuel pump would cut off and make the car die.
What I don't understand is why the oil light came on and why the car won't run now!
When the engine does turnover, it won't idle as it stays at 100-200 RPM for a few seconds then dies.
I tried giving it a bit of gas but that didn't keep it running and it didn't sound right anyway. It sounds like it might be missing but I have only owned this car for 2 months and am very wary of my assumptions.
I recently installed a catless uppipe and a Cobb crank pulley (when I also found out the hard way that the timing belt had already been changed), both of which seem fine. The car also has a K&N and catback exhaust.
What worries me
is that the car came with a Turbo XS boost controller and I have yet to tune the car since making those changes.
I've searched but cannot seem to find the fix to my problem. Any quick help would be greatly appreciated! This is my daily driver and I've got 13 hours till work!
...and a potentially long weekend if this is something bad.
Oil level is fine so I assume oil pressure or some sensor could be the problem?
Is it possible the fuel pump cutout kept the fuel pump off? that seems odd considering it that the engine kinda started a few times.
IDK!!!!! Help me please!!!!!!
Also- I used my OBDII scanner to clear the code and I unhooked the battery attempting to reset the computer as well. That didn't help either. But since the code for overboost is cleared, shouldn't I focus on fuel and oil issues?
Disclaimer of fault: I know I should have tuned it immediately after changing parts, I should have taken off the boost gauge when I first bought the car, and I should have done my research to find that my boost gauge reading of .15mps meant 24lbs of way-too-much-boost.
Now that I've admitted to being a screw up, feel free to rub all that in after
