View Full Version : 2008 legacy throttle problems

12-07-2011, 04:33 PM
I have a 08 legacy 2.5 it's n/a and manual and when Im in gear any where below 1500rpm and I press the throttle is has alot of hesatation ( 1-2 seconds) sometimes before it feels like the engine starts to even spool up and start to pull the car when Im not in gear it responds instantly. I hope someone else has come across this because its anoying and I almost got t-boned in a intersection because of it. I know its drive by wire im wondering weather the ecu needs to get flashed or something.

Is your check engine light on? If so, what codes did you see?

Do you have a scan tool? Sometimes codes are set but not displayed.....
