2002 Subaru Outback

Asked by Jun 08, 2019 at 12:19 PM about the 2002 Subaru Outback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2002 Outback started running bad.
Irregular idling. Not wanting to go when
you give it gas but fires right up. Really
bad if you turn AC on. No check engine
light on. Did it about 6 weeks ago and
we blew out air filter and put in gas
treatment.  Ran fine until yesterday.  
Tried the same things but not helping.  
Any ideas?

Try a tune up and filter change and use a good fuel system cleaner.
