Customer Question

Hi, i have a 55 reg. Impreza R Sport with 100,000 miles.The Engine will bog down,generaly between 2,500 and 3,400 RPM.Can be dangerous when overtaking & pulling away at junctions etc.As soon as it hits 3,400 it will pull like a Train.A local(ish) Impreza specialist looked,but did not want to know & my local (good) Garage can not fix.Suggested i need a new airflow meter,but they could not obtain one,suggesting i get one from the main dealer.Suggests to me that they do not really want to know,too.Got one,fitted it,ran great for 200 miles.used an induction cleaning spray,as did the Garage,same result.Pulled apart all electrical connections i could find & cleaned plus reset the ECU using a method found on a forum (disconnect Battery,ig.switch on,hold down brake pedal 30 secs,reconnect Battery,ig.back on,hold down acc.pedal,back to half way,release pedal,start Engine & idle for 5 mins) Ran great----for 200 miles. No warning lights showing,any ideas ? Many thanks, ***** ***** Pershore, XXX
