    I have a Subaru Outback with approximately , miles on it. I am not much of a mechanic so I apologize in advance if I appear.

    My dealer called and said they have a new catalytic converter which should be replaced under Car: 08 Outback I and 14 Legacy and 15 Legacy and 17 outback, 18 WRX Car: VDC/SC One of a Kind.

    Hello Justin, I had the converter done at just a regular shop in my area. Should I bother to pursue a recall? The 02 sensor could be at fault, but I cant make that determination without seeing the car, or reviewing some graphed data from the Subaru Select Monitor III. I have not posted another article about OBD II, they just are to technically difficult for the average non car person to get their heads around and overall not well recieved.

    Subaru Forester Check Engine Light On Due To Catalytic Converter

    You can read about how the system works here. Check Engine Light Part 1. Check Engine Light Part 2. But I will save that for another article. Hello, Justin, thank you for some terrific info you have provided on this site.

    I only wish you were in New England instead of Seattle. P code was detected, and Subaru dealer eventually performed catalytic converter replacement under warranty. At 60, mile maintenance, dealer replaced valve cover gaskets and timing belt.

    At 75, mile maintenance, Dealer replaced head gasket under warranty. Last fall, the car went through 90, mile maintenance OK at the dealer. Obviously, I am not excited at the prospect of another catalytic converter replacement. The car is running fine, no problems. Should I switch to 89 octane? Should I take it out for a long drive?

    Anything else I can do before I bring it back to the dealer? BTW, in terms of usage, I commute 60 miles round trip daily, mostly highway, and otherwise drive around town a bit.

    Also the HG failure could have degraded the Catalyst as well, but the most common reason they fail is they get all choked up with carbon and crud and no longer reach the light off point. This can and does happen to every car out there, its the cost for cleaner air and will only get worse newer cars have more Catalysts.

    Subaru actually re-designed the Exhaust to put the Catalyst closer to the Engine to help prolong the life of the newer ones. I would start with the higher octane fuel, some driving at higher RPMs at lower speeds and see if you can breath a little more life out of your Catalyst. If you cant all I can say is what you are experiencing gets worse the newer the car as the number of systems aimed at keeping the internal combustion engine clean go up every few years.

    I cant think of any other I would rather be in if I was ever in a Head on accident or out in the snow. Sorry for the confusion regarding Subaru vs. Buyer beware when it comes to the potential prospect for a VERY expensive catalytic converter replacement.

    On to the good news. Driving up Mount Rainier was not an option here for me, but running up and down some local hills in 3rd gear and about sustained RPMs plus the 93 octane and the Gumout gas treatment cleared the CEL in short order.

    Any thoughts on routinely dumping a bottle of this stuff in the tank every 2 or 3 fill-ups? My 06 outback kept tripping the code off and on for a year. Had a local garage check it out and they could not find any issues. I just changed the oil and decided to replace the PCV valve while I was in there. They CEL is now off and has been for about miles. I really like your website and it has provided a lot of information to me on the P code on my Subaru Outback.
