My subaru outback has recently started to idle roughly when i'm stopped at lights or stop signs or am driving slowly (below 20 mph). It also jerks somewhat violently as I accelarate from a stopped position. At sustained highway speeds it seems to run smoothly with no problems. It hasn't stalled yet but it feels like its going to when I come to a stop. The check engine light also recently popped on which i'm sure is related to this problem. Also, sometimes when I accelarate from a stopped position, the car doesn't respond right away to the depression of the gas pedal, and then will all of a sudden catch and the engine will rev quickly and it will accelarate. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
have the same problem?
