Subaru Forester 2003 - no power, CEL
Wife was driving home from working, and coming up hill there was no power. 60MPH max, and car was surging/hesitating. Did not recall if temp gauge was high. Essentially, car was not drivable past 50MPH.
I checked the coolant level once she came home, and the car appeared to be hot (temp gauge was high once I turned on ignition). Coolant was a bit low, so added some. Temperature came down fine.
I test drove the car and certainly it seems that on either high acceleration or trying to go past 50 mph causes the car to surge, RPM rev is inconsistent, and there is a general loss of power noticed. Sometimes the CEL will blink, but stops blinking and goes solid after a few seconds.
I will try to get a scanner to pull the code, but any ideas on possibilities? Thanks....
