I have a 2001 Forester. I have learned the Foresters in general have a very sensitive exhaust system. You problem could either be the o2 sensors or the catalytic converter. Most likely the converster with should be porcelein I think. The cheap way might be to find a mechanic who will be willing to clean the converter (the honeycomb things) and see if it runs a bit better. Good luck!

You shouldn't need to "bleed" the radiator in your Forester. If you top off the coolant in the radiator the next time you check the top of your radiator is empty again? You have a blown head gasket. Voice of experience here. --Ken

1. Check fuse - replace if blown. 2. If it shorts again check in line components inc. cigar lighter or frontdashboard power socket.

Mine gets stuck when it is cold. I just tap it(rather hard) a few times and it comes unstuck, then you have to lift the release lever again

your engine will stall. When you try to restart the engine, it will stutter and stall again.

1. You have a problem with the cruise control. or 2. If your check engine light is also on, get the code read, cancel the light and the cruise indicator light will probably quit flashing and the cruise will start working again.

Our '02 Forester is doing the same thing.... and it may be due to cold temps, at least that's when it started. I found that if I loosen the tilt lever and move the steering column up and down, the shift release lock button will depress and I can shift into park. This still doesn't mean it won't happen again when I stop at the drivethrough though. I suspect a sensor has gone bad in the steering column.

Most likely not! unless you have some type of warranty on it still. Subaru has a list of cars that fall under their head gasket recall. it stops in 03. The 2004 is not know to have the same head gasket issue as the earlier ones! Subaru has also released a product that they call coolant conditioner that is pretty much a fancy stop leak! The recall was to add a bottle of this conditioner to your vehicle before or after you noticed a leak and then Subaru would extend your Head Gasket warranty to 8 years from the date of original purchase or up to 100,000 miles. After that you were on your own again. Hope this is what you needed to know

I, I, I, stutter s,s,s, some times. Another example of repition is "cage after cage" (the other example by Elliot Boyce)Repetition is the act of repeating; a doing or saying again, or again and again.By the way it is a repetition not an repetition.

Checking engine oil level, if that is the question, on a Forester is the same as every other automobile. Pull the the dipstick from the tube it is in, wipe it off, seat the dipstick back in the tube then pull it out again and observe the level of the oil on the stick in relation to the full and add lines. If you need further instruction I would suggest asking a friend or neighbor, or the person who changes your oil who could actually show you how to do this in just a few minutes. I can explain all day here without you understanding what a simple quick demonstration will reveal.

Two ways; hold the key fob near the dashboard and depress the unlock button for several seconds until the cycling stops ~or~ disconnect the negative lead to the battery again, turn the key in the ignition to the "ON" position (as if the car was running), and then reconnect the battery. This is a security feature on Subarus.

Divide that by 1000 to convert to seconds. Then divide again by 60 to convert to minutes.

Chances are you also have a "check engine" light. This is an effort by Subaru to nudge you into getting the problem diagnosed and repaired. I just bought my third Subaru, a 2007 Outback and just discovered this feature." All of my Subarus have spent more time with the light on than with it off and I find losing the cruise control to be terribly inconvenient. Would be different if the same problems did not keep coming back again and again. Good luck! --Ken

you cant u just have to wait 30 minutes

....as the minutes go rushing by me again.

I have an after-market compass in my Forester, but it likely works the same. It needs a certain number of turns of the vehicle to establish where everything is and start working properly again. It does this automatically, noting is required of the driver except to drive. You can hurry this along by driving around the block a few times. --Ken
