Possible Valve Job

Asked by Jun 25, 2018 at 09:27 PM about the 2013 Subaru Forester

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car is stalling out and is reluctant to start again

3 Answers


Under what conditions? How long does it run for and how long until it will restart?


A valve job would be near the bottom of my list of suspects. Is the check engine light on? Have you ever tuned it up?


It's unlikely to be plugs or filters on a '13 DOHC as they come with ultra-durable iridium plugs. If TB is referring to stalling wafter braking to a stop then the number one culprit is the CVT...except that "reluctance" doesn't quite fit....
