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.

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.

My main point here is that if you have a performance problem and you're going to throw parts at the problem start with the basics before you to off and start replacing sensors that you suspect are a problem, if you don't have evidence of a faulty sensor then don't start there start with the simple tune up items and check for vacuum leaks and air leaks as I've shown here and I believe you'll have better results and save yourself some money in the process. In short the rule of KISS applies, Keep It Simple Stupid. If you have questions about your own engine performance issues head over to my website and either ask the search function or ask the forum, we'd be happy to help. 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.





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.

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.

DIY: Reset Check Engine Light without OBDII reader
Learn how to reset your Check Engine Light (CEL) without using an OBD II 2 scanner / reader tool. Will work on just about any car. Also referred to as Service Engine Soon, and Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL). This is very general and will work on any vehicle. Not just on this Honda. If the light does turn back on, go to any auto parts store and ask them if they can read the code on the computer. This is free most of the time and will tell you where to look for the problem. WARNING: Do not attempt to fool the company that gets you your vehicle state inspection. After resetting your computer this way, you will lose logged data. This shows up on their computer and will automatically fail the inspection. The fix? Drive it around for a while, a day or two and you will have the data back. Be warned, if you haven't fixed the issue, the light will turn back on.

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!

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!





QUICK O2 Sensor Change
If you guys had already watched the first Oxygen Sensor video I had posted, you may already know that there is 2 oxygen sensors. After the replacement of the Rear sensor, the check engine turned on again. I have a feeling that it is the Catalytic Converter, yet, I want to be sure. Therefore, here I am replacing the Front Oxygen Sensor. ---- Update! 3/22: -------------------------------3 MAJOR Summer Projects!:-------------------------- A Tune Up + Catalytic Converter Clean-Up + A Head Gasket Job ------ From my research, "no" 00-05 Subaru Outback, Legacy or Frontier can "escape" from a Head Gasket or a Catalytic Converter issue. So, please stay updated and SUBSCRIBE! ---- 2001 Subaru Outback Front/Up stream Oxygen Sensor. ---- This is a video on how to replace the Front/ Up Stream O2 sensor. If you are looking for how to fix the Rear/Down Stream click here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xy8mK43lk4Y ----- Tip1: To know when a sensor have to be replaced is very hard and the only way to know is when the check engine flashes on. However, if you are one of those people that do not want to prevent the check engine to turn on, I would recommend you to do a maintenance check or tune up. **(I will be up loading a video soon on "How To Tune Up a 2001 Subaru" most likely in the summer of 2012.)** Tip2: Also, remember to come back soon because I will be uploading a video on "How To Check if Your Oxygen Sensor has gone Bad." Tip3:There could be a chance that after you replace both Oxygen Sensors and the check engine light flashes again. At this point we can say that the Catalytic Converter has gone bad. A Catalytic Converter part will cost $$$.$$-$,$$$.$$+ but simple to replace. If this happens to me I will upload a new video on "How To fix a Catalytic Converter." (BUT, lets cross our fingers that I do not need to.) :) --------For a Subaru, the reason why my Catalytic Converter would need to be change is due to coolant leakage. When coolant leaks into the Exhaust system it ends up in the catalytic converter. When there is coolant in the converter, carbon deposit will built up and create back-pressure. Back-pressure prevents the car from breathing out and decreasing the performance. Causing the automobile to retain and circling a burning emission smell, heating up and blown head gasket. ---- Product information: Original Part Bosch Premium Oxygen Sensor- UpStream Sensor ($60.00-$100.00 USD plus tax) 1 year Warranty ---- The Bosch O2 sensor is an original Subaru part which I purchased at my local O'Relly auto store.

Yes I am really thinking about 'hot rodding' the Subaru but I have some work to do before I get there and a lot of money to come up with, unless I find a wealthy benefactor to help out. I also plan to reach out to MCM and get some advice on how to go about making my Subaru al it can be. I'm hoping Marty or Mechanical Stig will have some helpful input on what I should do with this car. Stay dirty ETCG

I thought the easiest thing to start with was to replace the axles and recheck for the condition. I had read somewhere where aftermarket axles had caused a hesitation on acceleration and wondered if my loose axles could be causing that condition for me. Replacing the axles didn't solve the hesitation problem but it did make for some good video on the process. I also hope to go back and see how to set the preload on the carrier bearings, that will be in another video. Till then enjoy this axle installation video.
