Has anyone had this problem? Our 2014 Outback occasionally stalls when driven at slow speed (pulling out of a parking lot, etc.).
This has happened several times in the last couple of years and it's created a potentially serious problem each time. In all cases, the RPM drops, I put the shifter in neutral, fiddle with the accelerator pedal, etc. but can't get RPMs. Can't restart (without shutting off ignition) because the engine is running, just not producing enough RPM.
Luckily, I've been able to coast to the edge of the roadway and get it restarted, but the stall put me in serious jeopardy with oncoming traffic. Had the computer checked the first time it happened and everything checked out OK. Service manager in Florida thought it might be a fuel problem with water in the gas, but it's happened with more than one fuel brand.
The engine is a 4-cyl., PZEV. The local service people say they never heard of the problem happening and have no suggestions.
