I have reset it and that is the exact code Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your car?

Just checking to see how it's going. I want to make sure you are taken care of. But with no response, I can only recommend the following. If you need to continue or if there is anything else I can assist with at all, let me know here and I will be happy to assist further! Have a great day start with an oil and filter change. use ONLY a Subaru OEM filter from the dealer, see if that helps the issue, if not then have the previously sent testing done.
