Yea, as ed, stated, i was having serious idle and startup issues...It started as i was out driving one day and comming up to a stop light, the car stalled out and had a very hard time starting back up, normally the 3.0R fires up super quik and without my help, now im having to give gas upon startup to get the idle rpm's up...After i got the car back home, ed and I did some diagnostics and Ed, suggested that i replace the egr, or atleast take off egr and check vavle out. So after blindly wrestling this egr valve off, which was up underneath the intake manifold, i noticed that the egr valve was in a stuck open position at idle. I opened the valve manually and a bunch of metal shaving/pieces fell out of where it was blocking the vavle.(going to find out where thhese metal pieces could have come from..they look brass too..hmm..)west_minist wrote:EGR Valve replaced after serious Idle issues occurred.
Anyways, so after getting a brand new subaru egr vavle & gaskets, i had to wrangle the egr valve back on the same hard way it came off! haha, but this was much harder! hahahaha...after getting everything tightened and torqued, i fired the 3.0R back up and she ca,me back to life in a great way! i was happy she was idling sooper smooth again and i did not have to help on the startup anymore! So, far everything has gone back to normal, in the sense that theres no rough idle, or misfiring at idle, no stalling and startup is effortless again! Egr Valve was the issue this time on the rough idle, thanks ed!
