Forenote: this story is halfway through, so I'll post an update immediately after the first post with my progress on this issue.
A couple buddies and I took a trip down island to Victoria, BC to check out some local breweries on Sunday Feb 24th, but upon starting the journey back my Ice Queen became sick. She wasn't flashing lights demanding I pull over, but she didn't feel as spunky as normal, barely being able to surpass 80km/h on the highway home.
Both the following lights came on, along with the typical blinking cruise control light, which happens whenever check engine lights up as far as I know:
Check Emissions Control System
Check Vehicle Dynamics Control System
She idles rough intermittently, more so when cold
I've got an ODB II reader, so I was able to pull codes, and it either looks okay or... Very, very bad. I'm seeing P000A "A" Camshaft Position Slow Response Bank which the internet has oodles of information about for MY2013's, but very little about MY2014's, probably because the Oil Control Valves were upgraded to newer models that year.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it's just a camshaft sensor, or at the worst the OCV, but with it being 5 months out of warranty you can bet my luck it's the camshaft sprocket. Hopefully not, of course, but better prepare for the worst just in case the engine needs to come out or the front fender needs removal. Anyone else run into this type of issue with MY2014 Crosstreks?
Edit: While my father and I are quiet adept at regular maintenance, working on timing systems and electronics in these newer cars is not our forte. That and we don't have a lift or garage space to tinker, so it's at the car doctor for now. I'll keep you guys posted.
