Forester faulters-changed everything but the body
Help!! I have a 2002 2.5L Forester. Car starts and idles normally. Mostly when v-cold (20-30 deg), the car will drive normally for 5 minutes. Then when you start giving gas slowly car will normally accel to approx 2000 rpm, then as you slowly add more gas, car will slow down. If you push it farther to the floor, the car will quickly accelerate and drive like it would with the pedal down. If I take my foot off the gas and slowly reapply it, the car will bog again. (If I can get it to happen in the garage, adding carb cleaner to the intake makes it rev up). Replaced: fuel pump & filter, cam & crank sensors,engine&trans computers, Throttle pos sensor, MAP/temp sensor, atmospheric press sensor, plugs, wires, coil, (fuel press tested OK during problem). During warmer months, and even now when its warmed, the car can run normal except for occasional loss of power during cruise. -OR NOT! (no CEL-other than a miss if I let the thing buck too long)
