HELP. I bought a 2001 Subaru Forester from a FRIEND with 210,000 miles. He avoided almost ALL MAINTENANCE until it would not GO UP A HILL.
We paid $600 and it LOOKS GREAT. (1) TUNE-UP later and new plugs ( the plugs were ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT and ONE looked like a finger or a carrot)
It ran GREAT for a few weeks and then started choking or stalling when going up a hill or stopped at a light. ( AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION ).
Now we replaced the FUEL sensor/regulator and filters. Next week replaced the FUEL PUMP.
It ran GREAT for 3 days and NOW is doing the same dumb thing. Can’t think of what to do next.
