Upset to say the least

Hi all new to this forum, i bought a Subaru 2001 GX bugeye on Saturday, (private sale) so no come back, its now Friday and i have a CHECK ENGINE light, im gutted coz i love driving it, ive spent all my money on getting the car and skint at moment so cant go to expensive garages to get it checked, what i am wondering is how to read codes on this car, ie without the use of a computer, could do it with my Evo wondering if its the same kind of set up...any help would be gratefully appreciated, thanks Gail (very unhappy person at moment)

It proberbly somthing small sensor maybe afraid you cant read for codes manually 2001-up they have to be plugged in using OBDII Data Link connector and hooked up to laptap with the software to read the codes if it was the classic imprezas be grand you could read them easily just hook 2 connectors together but yours has to be plugged in

I asked the guy i bought it from and he said that the check engine light came on once when he stalled it, but went off again, he said to continue using the car and not to worry, it has a big bore exhaust on but the cat is still on the car, could this be the problem ???

Don't think so if he only had the back box replaced, esp on an N/A car.

Did you really swap an Evo for a GX? Must admit I'm quite partial to Evo's myself. Though would never swap my Impreza for one.
