Starting and Running ProblemsW
2005 Subaru WRX-Stock-92,000miles
This started after I installed a stereo yesterday and I dont think its related. So this morning go out to the car and it just cranked forever sounded like it wasnt going to started. After multiple attempts it started right when I was about to give up. Drove to city and highway for the next hour just fine, no problems. Parked it for 6 hours and the same thing happen just cranked forever then finally started right when I was about to give up. Then drove for 30 minutes just fine. Parked it then tried to start it right after shutting it off and it fired right up. The car then sat for another 6 hours. This time it would not start. Ended up pull starting it and it got it going. Very ruff low idle(200-300). Would not go over 1500rpm in 1st gear. The engine sounds very bad and ruff. I'm hoping something simple, spark plugs? Fuel Filter? Fuel Pump? I did just do a tune-up about 5,000miles ago(plugs, fuel, air, and oil filter). Maybe a coil pack came loose. Car is parked on the side of the road and I am going to check all these things. Any idea's would be nice before I head an hour away. Is there a way to check the fuel pump?
