subaru wrx sti starting issues


Recommended Posts

Hi guys


Please assist

My 2002 Subaru WRX STI have a weird starting issue, IT SEEMS when cold as it started the past two days doing it. I have installed a brand new Rally SPEC bottom end ordered from Subaru JAPAN. Before this my engine was a 93mm bored folly forged motor (incase it makes a difference) I have been mapping the car this past week as the AFR is way out.

Like this morning I started the car, and started first time no problem. So no cold start issue it seems.

I wanted to calibrate my MAP sensor and I had to turn the engine off, turn on the ignition and then do the MAP calibration. Tried starting afterwards and it just swings and no start?? I had to push start the car to drive off

Last night when I started the car, I think I was too quick to release the ignition key, car barely idled and died. Tried starting again directly afterwards, and just swings and no start as well, took me 5 minutes to eventually start the car ...


Please help ?
