Fuel Injector Replacement

If you should receive a customer complaint of a Legacy, Impreza, or SVX being difficult to start, after a long cool down period (such as overnight) under extremely cold temperatures and high relative humidity, it has been found that under these conditions ice may build up at the tip of the injector and cause a no start or hard start condition. OBDII equipped vehicles will illuminate the MIL and exhibit trouble codes, P0301, P0302, P0303, P0304 (P0305 and P0306 for SVX).
A newly designed injector is now available to prevent the condition. All injectors should be replaced with the newly designed injector as a set of 4 (6 for SVX).
DUE TO THE FACT THAT THIS WILL ONLY OCCUR UNDER SPECIFIC DRIVING CONDITIONS, AS DESCRIBED ABOVE, REPLACEMENT OF INJECTORS MUST BE PERFORMED ONLY AFTER CONFIRMING THE CAUSE IS RELATED TO THOSE CONDITIONS.
Please note :
The new style injectors have been installed in production, beginning with the following VIN's:
New style injectors have applicability as listed.
