    Default check engine light 2013 outback v

    so i was out on the lake yesterday and after surfing for a bit noticed my check engine light was on.
    i drained the ballasts and got the boat sitting level again turned the engine off and it seemed to go away what would be causing this? checked the oil and all the gauges are good it seems like when the boat is listed to one side one it causes fluid to shift in the engine or something i dunno what do you guys think?

    Have to assume that it was on for a sensor issue with the fuel injection. If it doesn't come back on, it could have been a transient error with a reading that won't occur again. If it comes on again you will have to have it scanned to find out what sensor circuit is causing the problem then repair the circuit or sensor. The check engine light does not indicate any oil pressure problems or similar. It is only an indication of a situation with the engine management system.

    Mines tends to come on when the water is cold, if I got old fuel. Several times it's on all day and then we choose scan it with nothing. Dealer thinks it's emissions related and as long as the gauges read fine and your not in limp mode don't stress. But you should log the pattern for TSSat the dealer.
