Slight seepage from valve cover gaskets noted. The following chart shows the 14 most common problems for 2003 Subaru Impreza Wrx. Apr 02, 2014 Could be lack of current from the battery, corrosion on the terminals, bad ignition switch, bad neutral safety or clutch safety switch, bad solenoid, bad starter brushes, bad starter field, bad engine ground strap, or siezed engine. I would like to know if this is a case of a lemon and if you can help me. For a quick check, turn the headlights on as you try to crank.
This is very difficult to reproduce, but does happen about once every couple of weeks. They got back to me on Monday saying they looked at the engine and it had zero oil. I can replicate the problem consistently when driving over rail crossings. There are two things that make this behavior so dangerous. This problem may be difficult to reproduce, but I assure you that it is very real. Nothing is more satisfying than smoking the old guy driving an automatic-equipped Corvette complete in the requisite Corvette jacket and embarrassing him in front of the blonde 30 years his junior in the passenger seat.
By 61500 miles, I took it in to get my turbo looked at because it was making a weird noise. They decided to just replace the engine. Paid 1300 to replace it. If you have record of this being a frequent problem, maybe it helps my case. As soon as it disengages, the increase in braking power is quite significant. Drove it there and they gave me a loaner car.
The car does not leak or smoke. He told me to come back on the weekend so that his service team could take a look and make a decision on if i really needed new tires. Few have experienced significant engine problems. Called dealer and they said to bring it in to have a look. No, not the campers, but cars that look slow but are actually pretty quick, both on and off the track.
The dealer told me that there is no code when the check it out. I have noticed that there is an investigation under way regarding this issue, and I am hopeful that my information will helpful in one way or another. This way I tried to save some money on car; but I had to sink savings into transmission. I haven't had it back to dealer yet I am waiting til I can cause the problem consistently so they know there is a problem. I ran into the back of another person. Since they claimed abuse they could then get away with telling me the repairs are not covered under warranty.
Although it is necessary to have the fuel injection system cleaned , as the engine leans during the turn,the problem may be a faulty rubber air intake boot that flexes. No matter how hard I pressed, it didn't seem to help. I dropped my car at the dealer because i can not drive it the way it is and they claim to have no loaners to lend me. Replaced radiator one week later after symptoms of cooling system failure began to show up and didn't want to risk further problems. I immediately went back to the dealer and explained to the used sales manager the issue about the tires.
I bought my 2012 wrx used with full warranty and the car had a throw out bearing issue, so under warranty I had the issue fixed. Plus it had new tires, new brakes, and new rotors. If you are unable to replicate it, then you have not developed an experiment to effectively test for this defect. This problem may be difficult to reproduce, but I assure you that it is very real. This resulted in an accident. I don't know enough about this mod to know the correct answer, but I would be surprised if you only needed a 2. Throw out bearing and pressure plate were replaced at dealer because the car was whineing at 9000 miles.
Since then have heard a repeated clicking noise in transmission. What some felt was a gamble on Subaru's part turned out to be a harbinger of good--no, great--things to come. They have not brought it up and it has been in the shop since its been broken in and still nothing has changed. It's not turbo-charged but with gas prices the way they are, I'm not complaining. Replaced main transmission and rear differential oil with Motul Gear 300 75w90. Recently, after 86000 clutch went out again had to replace again now I am having issues with ignition, starter and could be rings, not sure.
