I know the feeling Nathan! 2 days after I bought my wrx it threw a CEL that took 2-3 for the dealer to correct.

As you just bought the car, it may be worth it to take it back to the place you bought it to see if they will cover it, just my .02

Yeah why you thinking you're gonna be paying outta pocket? You've had it for a week. There's no way they'd do nothing for you. That dealership looks pretty official in the background and not just a nobody.

Because the sold the car "as is" because they wanted to charge me so much in money for the warranty it wasn't even worth it
I just got off the phone with the dealer and they said its my problem they can't help me
I called actual Subaru snd gave them my VIN and they said the pre owner has a 6yr/100k but they don't know if that has rolled over to me or not yet because its only been 4 days.

But I just tried again at the dealer and they r going to call me back Monday so lets cross our fingers they fix it on this 30day\ 1k warranty

Ok so, if I am having a major rod knock, and I am getting a fine mist of oil inside my engine bay, and very very slow oil drip on the ground of my garage, could this mean the rod went threw the block, just a rumor I herd so I wanted to see what u guys thought
If this is true that means I will need a new block huh?

Umm...I'm confused how it could go through your block. If it went anywhere it would go down into the oil pan or it'd would've had to squeeze past a piston to go up. If it fell into the oil pan you'd have a complete miss and not a knock. Plus your engine wouldn't be running more than likely.

Makes sense Kirt, I dont hear the knock when in idial, when it goes over 1300 rpm then u hear it, also when in idial it will almost stall sitting there but then pop right back to normal

Can I assume you did not have a PPI performed before you committed to the purchase?

Although you purchased the car, a trade-in I assume, from a dealership it was not a Subaru dealership but that does not matter either way. I have purchased several vehicles over the years from dealerships and two of those vehicles came from a dealership I once worked for and trust and I know all the techs and the used vehicle techs so I would speak with them directly but the sale depended upon my own mechanics findings. $100 for a PPI from your personal and highly trusted mechanic is worth it's weight in gold.

I am in no way hounding you or saying you did it wrong and Thank God you still have some warranty left .

Let us know what the outcome is ok? She is such a beautiful car and I know your just dying to get her back to 100%.

PS,
If the issue is a spun bearing they will have to drop and tear down the engine so imho this would be a good opportunity for you to install a set of forged pistons. I had JE's in my MR2T and the good thing was that the piston set also included rings. Some times what seems to be a set back is actually a good thing in the long run.

I totally agree with this! My first WRX was a modded auto 02. I was so excited to get it. Shortly after I purchased it I blew the rear diff. Dealer fixed it for me. Then after that I had cel's popping up left and right followed by me hydrolocking the engine due to my cai in a monsoon. I was bummed at the time but, it all led me to buying a brand new 06 off the showroom floor that I still love today as much as I did when I first saw it. Not saying you will end up having to get another car but, whatever happens could be a blessing in disquise. Good luck!

No hounding taken, tough love is how I look at it hahaha
Also my personal shop was over 150miles one way so that was out of the question, it's a 3 hr drive in Cali traffic one way.

Also if they r going to take it apart, would subaru go ahead and install these pistons for me if I brought them to them?!?!

P.s. won't I need a tune for the pistons?
