Oh dear! I have been driving it fine for nearly a week (it arrived last Friday) but yesterday something odd started occuring. After gear change and applying gas it goes and then just dies... but then picks up again. Took it out again this evening and my Husband nearly came to a stop before it hit in again and then went ok. He had to come down through the gears to 1st and it still wouldnt pull away at all (5 miles per hour). Then it just shot off again.

Is there a simple explaination? Yes I use Shell Optimax.

Doesnt my post make sense? Ok.... Im waiting at lights (for example), I put my foot down and the car accelerates but then dies. I have to shift down to first, wait a second or two and apply gas again and off I go.

This happens through any gear shift if I apply the gas hard.

Does that sound better? :)

First off...welcome!!! :D

Sounds to me its not a powertrain problem, but something with your fuel system or ecu. Sounds to me like you lose power b/c of possibly a faulty injector?? I would take it in to get checked.

I do have it booked in for Tuesday.. guess I was really looking for a price tag on my problem.

She goes fine otherwise. Just a little downheartening after just taking ownership :)

Aren't these cars exciting :D

For those too lazy to find out the current exchange rate here it is:

£1 = $1.6024

So £8000 = 12,819.20

We're talking about an STi, right? That's gotta be used though...no way it's an '04 model...otherwise you'd be talking £22000 or so

I would assume that STi 2 is in reference to the second STi model year. I think that we are now at STi 8 (Europe).....so yes, it would mean the car is a used STi.
