Engine Misfire Salt Lake City

Subaru Engine Misfire Salt Lake City Service

Subaru Engine Misfire Repair in Salt Lake City, UT

Every spark-plug in your Subaru is electrically timed to fire at a precise time to deliver power to the engine. If the spark fires at the incorrect time or not at all, that is considered a misfire. Misfiring of a cylinder can happen for a number of reasons. Below are some of the most common causes and approximate costs of the engine misfire condition:

  • Carbon or oil fouled spark-plugs: Could cost $100 to $300 depending on the cost of plugs and the labor to replace them. Keep in mind that oil or carbon fouled plugs are the result of a more serious problem with the engine and to diagnose and repair the problem will cost more time and money to fix.

  • Bad spark-plug wires: $100 to $300 depending on cost of parts and labor to replace.

  • Bad fuel delivery: $100 to $1000 depending on cause of fuel delivery problem: bad injectors, cracked intake plenum, new injector driver or flash programming of ECM (Engine Control Module) needed.

  • Vacuum leak: $100 to $1000 depending on cause of vacuum leak.

  • Mechanical breakdown: Broken valve spring, burnt valve, broken or burned piston or piston ring, blown cylinder head gasket. Repairs for this can run from $500 - ?????.

So, what should you do? The best way to avoid an engine misfire condition on your Subaru is by following the scheduled maintenance in your Owner's Manual. Keep your vehicle's engine tuned according to Subaru factory specs. Plus, a yearly trouble-code scan by a Subaru Service Center will uncover any potential problems before they become major faults.
