I am at my wits end!
First of I am talking about a 97 Subaru Impreza 1.8 engine.
Anyhow, my problem started out as the car started right up. Drive it 1 to 2 miles and the engine starts to spit and sputter and then it stalls out.
One other thing is that when the engine does it's spitting and sputtering, pumping the gas does nothing.
I do have a light that kicks on that never did before. It is the AT fluid temperature light. It comes on and flashes a few times and then shuts off.
The tranny fluid level is fine and I am questioning how even IF it was the transmission, how and why would it cause the engine to spit and sputter and
Anyhow, I think I have it narrowed down to the MAF sensor. I took it out today and the two wires did NOT look corroded or dirty..
Any help from someone whom might have experienced anything similar would be greatly appreciated!
EDIT: I have already changed the fuel filter and the air filter is good to go as well.
