Question about 2001 Subaru Legacy

While driving the car suddenly starts to sputter 3

While driving the car (LLBean 2001 Subaru Outback) suddenly starts to sputter 3 or 4 times and then returns to normal. It may happen a couple more times before I get home. It is scary. I don't know if the car will die and leave me stranded

    It sounds like a fuel supply problem. Have you had the fuel filters replaced? How many miles has the vehicle done? I'm guessing this only happen in top gear. I have this same car only MY2000...great vehicle!

Sounds like you will find a code that says Misfire cyl 4. Or it could be any cyl. Most of the time it is worn out spark plugs. that's the easy fix. If it does the same thing after new plugs then you may have burnt valves which is not an unusual problem with Subaru and quite expensive to fix. From $1500 to $2200 depending where you go for repairs.

2001 outback automatic stall.


When you changed the ****** fluid was it brown? If so I regret to inform you, you may need a new transmission. The brown color is due to the clutches in the trans, wearing down over time. Does it shift hard when you drive it? If it does that is another sign the trans has gone out the window.
