Car will shut off when i throw it in neutral after driving.
It is throwing an IAC code and it is also throwing a O2 sensor code. I replaced the neutral switch and I also replaced the IAC...Everything is plugged in correctly and there are no vacuum leaks. The car is a 1998 subaru legacy 2.5gt with a 5 speed tranny. Does anyone know what could be causing this?

After replacing those parts did the code still occur?

EGR possibly? I would think it would throw a code for it though.

Could be the wiring.

98sc00byGT 11-26-2012 11:09 PM

but it always doesnt do it the wiring would mean it would always shut off

Not necessarily. I've seen may times bad wiring causing sporadic running issues.
