Hey everyone, my name is Andrew...I'm a 23 year young ASE certified mechanic. I have been in love with Subaru since 2008. I have been searching for the perfect Impreza for 5 years and finally found her after a painstaking wait on Craigslist, Thursday night. I went out to take a look on Friday and brought her home with me. :burnout:

I hope to learn as much as possible from all the experienced users on this forum and plan to be active everyday!

Let the Subaru love begin! :loser:

Welcome! I think I saw that on Craigslist, is it plastidipped, or matte painted?

Check engine light came on last night.
I just had it scanned an hour ago.

P1507 - Idle control system malfunction - fail-safe
Probable cause - Check other codes and/or engine conditions first.

The only problem with that, is that there are no other codes.
Anyone have any suggestions on where/what to check?
Idle air control valve?

I am about to order some parts from RockAuto to do some maintenance on the Subaru.
I just wanted to get some opinions back from members on certain brands as far as replacement parts go.
Here is what I have in my shopping cart, ready to ship.
I will also be doing an engine oil change...I already have a Bosch # 3310 for an oil filter. What type of oil should I run?
Thoughts, suggestions, comments?

- Fuel filter - WIX # 33558 : $16.19
- Throttle body gasket - FEL-PRO # 61360 : $2.50
- O2 sensor - BOSCH # 17018 / UPSTREAM : $60.79
- PCV valve - ACDelco # CV1016C : $4.52
- Valve cover gasket - FEL-PRO # VS50561R : $19.45
(w/Grommets & Spark plug tube seals; PermaDry® molded rubber gskts. incl.; Improved design)
- Spark plugs - NGK # 5464 : Iridium IX (4) : $26.24

DO NOT BUY BOSCH O2 sensors they suck... get a ntk denso unless ur pushing a lot of power I'd just get plain ngk v power plugs. irridiums wont net you anything, waste of monies.

I've only ever run Wal-Mart 5w-30 in my N/A Subarus. They don't make enough power or spin to a high enough RPM to really care.

What is the issue with Bosch O2`s ? ( Not challenging the statement, but already using them in my car, and now concerned I made a mistake)
