2007 Subaru Check Engine Light Diagnosis -EricTheCarGuy

Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ This 2007 Subaru Outback showed up with a few problems, one of them was a check engine light. The codes were P0137, P0037, and P2096. They all related to the secondary O2 sensor. In this video I show the procedure I went through in order to diagnose and repair these codes. All you need is a scanner and a DVOM. So, if you have a vehicle with a CEL, even if it's not a Subaru, you can use the information in this video to help resolve the problem. Here are some other videos you might find helpful.

2007 Subaru Outback Suspension Noise Repair -EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ The Subaru came in for a couple of things. A noise in the suspension was one of them. In this video I show how I diagnose and repair a noise in this 2007 Subaru Outback. It wasn't easy to track down but it turned out that the left rear upper strut mount had come apart and was causing a 'clunk'/'squeak' when going over bumps. The replacement of this mount shows how to compress the coil spring on the strut as well as the replacement of the upper mount. Here are some helpful links if you find yourself dealing with this problem.

Diagnosing Your Subaru's Check Engine Light
In this video I will show you how to diagnose the check engine light for your OBD1 (1996 and older) Subaru. In this video I am diagnosing my 1993 Subaru Legacy LS Special. Learned how to do this myself and figured I would share to the world how to do it. By diagnosing the check engine light yourself you could save the money it would take to have a shop or a dealer diagnose it, and you can also save money as opposed to buying and OBD scanner which could run a price of up to $100+. The website that I found most useful for trouble codes was www.troublecodes.net. The only few reasons why an OBDI Subaru will have a check engine light are for the following reasons: - The connector to the sensor is unplugged. - There is a grounding problem within the circuit. - There is inadequate power to the circuit. - The circuit is shorting out somewhere. - The sensor itself is shot so badly that it cannot communicate with the ECU. OBDI is different from the OBDII system because in the OBDI system, there are no inefficiency codes or monitors like there are in the OBDII systems. --UPDATE-- My Subaru has been destroyed. I was driving the other night in the snow and a moron in a 4WD Jeep was doing at least 45 in a 25 zone, and he started swerving all over the road and he ended up swerving his passenger side rear end right into the front of my car. After he hit my car, he was going so fast that he continued to slide an additional 40 feet away from my car. My car is totaled, and the stupid ass hole in the Jeep got away with his rear end smashed. The worst part is that I did nothing wrong and now I am out a car. RIP.
