2002 Subaru Impreza Outback ProblemsCheck Engine Light Due to Failed Knock Sensor
There have been reports of "clutch chatter," particularly when driving the vehicle from a cold start. If the issue was reported by the owner while the vehicle was still under warranty, the dealer may replace the clutch with improved parts.
Sometimes the Check Engine Light illuminates because the computer detects misfires. Subaru released an improved spark plug wire set to solve the problem. The ignition coil should also be inspected for carbon tracks or short circuits between the contacts
2002 Subaru Impreza Outback QuestionsCan a rear main seal leak cause the cylinders (1 and 4) to misfire?? (1 answer)

Bolt holding alternator to car sheared off not once but twice...this takes out powersteering but more importantly only have 20 minutes of drive time without any radio/lights,etc on because the battery can't charge...this problem has occurred twice driving on a straight road on my way to work ...
I just got an email from the dealer stating it was about time for my 87,000 mile maintenance. Can't find a listing of what that should entail in my owner's manual. Does anyone know what I should expect?
