Subaru 2001 Legacy L intermittant electric problem -- help!
Since I had the infamous head gasket replacement, my wagon has had an intermittent problem where the car loses power momentarily and then comes up to original RPM. Feels like "missing" or stumbling. Tends to happen under load, I think. Quite scary on the freeway, sometimes misses several times a second, sometimes just once.
I took the car in to the non-dealer shop that did my gasket work and they replaced the spark plug wires, thinking they were arcing. After that the problem was lessened but not solved, and...
Yesterday car stumbled several times on freeway and then shut off completely, AT Temp light started flashing, and I was unable to restart for 1.5 hours. Had car towed, car started normally.
Shop is saying this is going to be hard to figure out, as there are no error codes on computer.
Any amazing people out there who have experienced this? Should I take to dealer or electrical system expert? Recommendation in Torrance, CA area?
