N.A.S. Posted May 16, 2010 Share Posted May 16, 2010 Hey, Im new to the forum so i guess this can be my introduction too. I'm from San Diego, CA born n raised Im in the military:( and i recently bought a 05 Legacy gt. its 5speed, pearl white, leather interior (i hate leather) ill post pics of it later its midnite here. i was driving on the freeway after work to take someone somewhere n it was a hot day. i get to about 85 and start going down a slope so i put it in neutral, all of a sudden i try merging onto 1 of the ramps then i realize my car locked up (had it happen to me before in a different car) im able to get to the shoulder lane safely. then we pop the hood n the turbo is smokin and so is the coolant tank. we leave the car there for a while and go get coolant and put it in, we try to start it back up and it wouldnt start, so we let it sit a little longer then we turn it back on and it starts but there was a loud knocking noise. i get the car towed back to where i live and i ask a few of the guys what the knocking noise is (2 of them own wrx's) we came up with that it could be piston, connecting rod, valves or lifters. i was told the best thing to do is have it rebuilt with performance parts put in it or whatever. in reality im lost and dont know what to do. im trying to do the cheapest way possible. my engine cranks slowly and u can hear the knocking noise. its still driveable but im not gonna take my chances. what im really asking is what should i do and where do i go next. i have a warranty for it but that warranty is for the dealer i bought it from in cali and im in el paso texas.
