Engine Mechanical problem
2007 Subaru Outback 6 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 30389 miles
Engine shut down on my 2007 Subaru Legacy Outback with just over 32,000 miles. Wife was sitting for a red light and the engine quit. Electronics continue to work and the engine fan motor continued to run but the engine shut down and would not restart. Tried second set of keys, still no results. When you turn the ignition key a "Er HC" code appeared over the mileage indicator on the speedometer. Checked owner manual but could not find anything on "Er HC" code. Had the vehicle towed to a local repair shop but the diagnostic came up as a dealer code so they could not make a determination to fix the problem. The nearest Subaru dealer is 50 miles away and we can not afford the tow so the vehicle is still parked at the local repair shop. Called dealership and was told there was no recall on this problem and the vehicle is out of basic warranty by two months. They charge $90.00 hour just for the diagnostic. Sorry for small donation but I was laid off and we are desperate. Please help with any suggestions on how to fix this. Should Subaru help pay for the repairs?
have the same problem?
