The Subaru as 260k miles on it and I live in Georgia.
When I attempt to start the car, it turns over and sounds like the engine catches and then dies out without getting over 200 rpms or so.
Its a manual and I made sure the floor mat isn’t impeding the clutchsensor.
The car has been doing this the past three days and finally today after driving around for a few hours and multiple times shutting the engine off with at least two start attempts before it fires, I get home and shut off the car. I then attempt to restart it about two hours later and after 7 tries, all with the car sounding like the the engine has fired but not yet fully running , then the engine dies.
Any ideas. I would push start it but am parked on an uphill slope.
