Hot liberty

Asked by Arthur Barnes

I READ with interest about a reader's Subaru Liberty dropping to two cylinders after the engine warms up. My daughter had a similar problem. After spending thousands of dollars on Subaru technicians and private mechanics, I checked everything and had a hunch heat was affecting the black power box on top of the engine. I put a $5 fibreglass insulating mat under the box and the problem disappeared. My daughter refused to drive the car after it continually broke down, but since the fix, she is back behind the wheel.

THANKS, Arthur. A little bit of old-fashioned Aussie ingenuity works a treat. Perhaps the other reader will be able to do the same.
