vandem531 Posted December 6, 2016 Share Posted December 6, 2016 I have a 2012 Subaru Legacy. It only has 93k miles on it. It broke down last week: shaking horribly and the check engine light, break light and rotation light came on. I took it to my usual mechanic and he said I had carbon build up in my engine and I would need a new one. He also mentioned he scoped my engine and that's how he found the carbon on my Valves. I also know that all four of my cylinders misfired. I honestly don't think my engine is bad. I also know nothing about cars. I had my cousin who is a mechanic look at it. He said he doesn't believe my motor is bad because it would be making a ton of noise. All mine does is shake. He also mentioned that my valves would be making a ticking noise and they don't. He said it could be electrical. I'm not really sure what to do. I still owe $8k on it and I was going to trade it in but it's hard to go to a dealer without them noticing it. I had all the codes cleared and the shaking went away. They will most likely come back on in 50 miles or so. And when you rev my car, it doesn't hesitate.
