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.

Re: Performance Issues - EricTheCarGuy
Re: Performance Issues - EricTheCarGuy Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ See Part 1 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rsGTeWayqIU There was a lot of response to the original videos and therefore a lot of questions that I wanted to answer to so I've made this video in response to those. I felt I needed to drive home the process that I take when ever I'm confronted with a performance problem as that was what I felt the take away from the original videos should be. I hope this series helps better your understanding of performance problems and how to solve them. Remember to start with the basics and try not to overcomplicate the problem, most performance problems are the result of simple causes and with a little investigation you can usually find the cause of many engine performance problems. If you have automotive questions the fastest way to get a response is to head over to my website and forum as I no longer answer YouTube comments and it takes me a while to get through email these days, here's a link. http://www.ericthecarguy.com/forum/default.aspx --- Click below and Stay Dirty Visit me at EricTheCarGuy.com http://ericthecarguy.com/ Visit EricTheCarGuy Forum http://www.ericthecarguy.com/forum/default.aspx Visit my Facebook Page: http://www.facebook.com/EricTheCarGuy --- Stay dirty ETCG Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, it cannot guarantee against unauthorized modifications of this information, or improper use of this information.  EricTheCarGuy assumes no liability for property damage or injury incurred as a result of any of the information contained in this video. EricTheCarGuy recommends safe practices when working with power tools, automotive lifts, lifting tools, jack stands, electrical equipment, blunt instruments, chemicals, lubricants, or any other tools or equipment seen or implied in this video.  Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, no information contained in this video shall create any express or implied warranty or guarantee of any particular result.  Any injury, damage or loss that may result from improper use of these tools, equipment, or the information contained in this video is the sole responsibility of the user and not EricTheCarGuy.





O2 Sensor Basics - EricTheCarGuy
This will be the beginning of a series that I'm going to do on computer controlled systems. I've had quite a bit of response to the check engine light video and I think this is the next logical step. I've covered the basic operation of an O2 or oxygen sensor as the basis for closed loop operation. This will probably not be the last time I cover information on O2 sensors, there is so much more to these than meets the eye.

P0325 Knock Sensor Diagnosis - EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ Wells website http://www.wellsve.com/ Wells YouTube (great videos I recommend you subscribe) http://www.youtube.com/user/markjhicks As you can see by the title this video covers the diagnosis and repair of a P0325 on my 1997 Subaru Legacy L model with 2.2L engine backed by an auto trans. I did have some trouble with the 'factory' diagnostic procedure but thankfully my friend Mark at Wells Electronics had a test that involved a voltage drop across the sensor that worked perfectly. I hope this video illustrates the import ants of understanding a circuit that you're diagnosing as opposed to just throwing parts at something, with a little time and effort you can do a proper diagnosis. --- Click below and Stay Dirty Visit me at EricTheCarGuy.com http://ericthecarguy.com/ Visit EricTheCarGuy Forum http://www.ericthecarguy.com/forum/default.aspx Visit my Facebook Page: http://www.facebook.com/EricTheCarGuy --- Stay dirty ETCG Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, it cannot guarantee against unauthorized modifications of this information, or improper use of this information.  EricTheCarGuy assumes no liability for property damage or injury incurred as a result of any of the information contained in this video. EricTheCarGuy recommends safe practices when working with power tools, automotive lifts, lifting tools, jack stands, electrical equipment, blunt instruments, chemicals, lubricants, or any other tools or equipment seen or implied in this video.  Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, no information contained in this video shall create any express or implied warranty or guarantee of any particular result.  Any injury, damage or loss that may result from improper use of these tools, equipment, or the information contained in this video is the sole responsibility of the user and not EricTheCarGuy.





Check Engine Light Basics - EricTheCarGuy
If you have the code you can look up what it means here http://www.ericthecarguy.com/obd-code-lookup Sorry about the camera focus on this one, whenever I use my wide angle lens it tends to do this. Aside from that I have a lot of video shot that I don't intend to post here because of time constraints, these videos will be made available at a later date through the EricTheCarGuy website. I used this video because I didn't have anything else this week that I could use for the show and I like to do at least one a week if I can. I have lots more scheduled so stay tuned in the coming weeks. As for Check Engine Lights they come in all shapes and sizes, sometimes they are easy to diagnose and others can be a bit more challenging. I plan to do an entire series on this subject so don't consider this the last time I will cover this. The point of this video is to familiarize yourself with the basic hook up of a scan tool to read the codes stored in the on board computer nothing more, I got a bit carried away with my O2 sensor explanation and had to cut most of it. Much of what I cut from these will also be available at a later date as a series of "Tips" that may be made available on future shows or on DVD depending on the subject. I hope this video is informative if you have any questions you can post them as a response to this video or visit me at EricTheCarGuy.com, --- Click below and Stay Dirty Visit me at EricTheCarGuy.com http://ericthecarguy.com/ Visit EricTheCarGuy Forum http://www.ericthecarguy.com/forum/default.aspx Visit my Facebook Page: http://www.facebook.com/EricTheCarGuy --- Here are some links to information about retrieving codes from vehicles pre OBD II.

Clear check engine light for less than 5 dollars
More Tutorials on my CHANNEL: http://www.youtube.com/user/moccina *This video is an EXPERIMENT I wanted to try on my car, and is for INFORMATIONAL purposes ONLY. This fix is for off-road use. The content shown in this video is not intended to encourage emissions test cheating. I enjoy the process of testing theory because you always learn something new, regardless of the outcome. Using a spark plug defouler kit, I install a "buffer" in between the downstream oxygen sensor and the catalytic converter. Quite often, frustrated car owners get the P0420 code for reasons other than a bad cat. I have heard of people getting the code just because they removed the converter and reinstalled it. It can also happen if you run your vehicle out of gas etc... etc... It is also common for car owners to get the P0420 code, replace the converter, and both o2 sensors-- only to have the code come back after 1000 miles or so. This can be a very frustrating, time consuming and of course-- expensive venture. Here is one way to resolve the issue. Good luck and have fun!

Yes this is the one I put the engine in TWICE. It's not back for an engine thought it's back for a speed sensor code as well as harsh shifting and a bouncing speedometer needle. This is a fairly common problem on Hondas but in this case there was come corrosion that came into play. I don't want to give away too much though so you're just going to have to watch the video to get the details on that. I hope you find this video useful, in fact I believe you can use this method on other makes to help verify a speed sensor failure.

How to replace an O2 Sensor and save money.
I show you how to replace your O2 Sensor. This is being performed on a 1997 Chevy Tahoe. Automotive oxygen sensors, colloquially known as O2 sensors, make modern electronic fuel injection and emission control possible. They determine if the air fuel ratio exiting a gas-combustion engine is rich (with unburnt fuel vapor) or lean (with excess oxygen).

Since I had this RL in my shop that had a check engine light AND an ABS light I thought it was a perfect opportunity to put this video together. I get asked all the time about my 'special tool' and it's really nothing more than a Honda 2 pin connector with the input wires soldered together. These connectors might be harder to find than you think but if you run across a junk honda and one of these is on the harness grab it. Even if you don't have the tool a paper clip or piece of wire will do the exact same thing so don't sweat it if you don't have the tool because shorting the connector is all you need to do.

Bad Oxygen Sensor Symptoms and Dangers
Is your "Check Engine Light" on? It may be a bad O2 Sensor. You don't want this to go too long or you'll be spending a ton more in car repairs, namely the Catalytic Converter will burn out, and those aren't cheap. You'll also be wasting gas and have a less efficient vehicle. So get that changed ASAP!

It's a high resistance circuit that's on all the time when the vehicle is running, the heater elements go from being very hot to very cold in the winter time, I suspect these heat cycles eventually wear the elements down and as a result they eventually fail. No matter what the cause a quick check of the heater circuit can save you a lot of trouble down the road so the next time you run into an O2 sensor heater failure code I suggest you do this quick check before replacing a sensor. You might also want to check out the article that I wrote above for more information on O2 sensor operation and why they use a heater inside them.
