Subaru Legacy Owners Manual: General precautions when starting/stopping engine

  •  Never start the engine from outside the vehicle (except when using the remote engine start system). It may result in an accident.
  •  Do not leave the engine running in locations with poor ventilation, such as a garage and indoors.

    The exhaust gas may enter the vehicle or indoors, and it may result in carbon monoxide poisoning.

  •  Do not start the engine near dry foliage, paper, or other flammable substances. The exhaust pipe and exhaust emissions can create a fire hazard at high temperatures.


  •  If the engine is stopped during driving, the catalyst may overheat and burn.
  •  When starting the engine, be sure to sit in the driver's seat (except when using the remote engine start system).


  •  Avoid rapid racing and rapid acceleration immediately after the engine has started.
  •  For a short time after the engine has started, the engine speed is kept high.

    When the warm-up is completed, the engine speed lowers automatically.

  •  On rare occasions, it may be difficult to start the engine depending on the fuel and the usage condition (repeated driving of a distance in which the engine has not warmed up sufficiently).

    In such a case, it is recommended that you change to a different brand of fuel.

  •  On rare occasions, transient knocking may be heard from the engine when the accelerator is operated rapidly such as a rapid start-up and a rapid acceleration. This is not a malfunction.
  •  The engine starts more easily when the headlights, air conditioner and rear window defogger are turned off.
