Hi - I have a 1999 Subaru Outback- I replaced the 2.5l DOHC engine with a Japanese Domestic Market engine a few months ago-- used the old
manifolds and pollution control equipment - it ran fine for a few weeks - then had a bad oil leak - loose screws on the oil pump Fixed that. Now I consistently get trouble codes po130, po136, po500, po1100, po1101, po1120, po1540 and one more. I have Changed plugs, changed o2 sensor, checked the spark and the injectors. Car has a severely bad idle, chugging, and you can smell unburned gas, runs better above 3000 rpms. I suspect the ECU. Is it possible to reboot the ECU? I have disconnected the battery many times, did the timing belt again to make sure it was timed right. Checked vacuum lines Good battery, good alternator - Ready to junk the car. HELP?
