Question about 2006 Subaru B9 Tribeca
When I start the car, all seems fine. RPM goes over 1500. Once I get on D, it drops. At a stop sign, it coughs and drops under 1000 RPM (all to 500 or less). If I put it on Park again, it gets shyly under 1000RPM.

Turns out my airflow metre was fried. ($240 piece of plastic) Was told the cause may have been because of the air pod and long country driving. Have been advised to put the factory airbox back on unless car is used for high performance or wishing to gain maximum performance. After mounting a front cooler on, this should provide sufficient cool air to engine and turbine for every day driving.

This sounds like it may be as simple as cleaning the water or gunk out of the gas tank which is what I always do 1st because it's easy and inexpensive.
If your fuel is contaminated with gunk, grime, water and/or bottom junk like rust this will cause stalling!
Fill the tank with High Test, Add some dry gas and a good fuel system cleaner or 2 or 3 and this should dissolve all the gunk and clean the injectors! Read & follow the cans' instruction carefully.
If this cures the problem never let your gas tank get below 1/4 and especially never run it to empty as this is when the gunk and/or water will enter the system!
Hope this helps!

most older cars were designed to run between 600 to 800 rpm so its not an issue, if the aircon is on it should pick up a few hundred rpm but dont be to concerned unless its dropping below 500rpm. these cars have a lot of low end torque so you wont have any trouble getting off the line.
