Arek (12 years old) earned $7 helping change the WRX oil. He intends to earn another $7 helping put the winter tires on my gf's GTI. This kid's got debts to pay.

I get to try Shell Rotella T6 5W-40 in my WRX for the first time.

Good choice of oil. Actually it's the best choice you could have made! My question is...why did you wait so long?
I don't agree w your oil filter choice!

NeverSummer, What would you suggest for an oil filter? I tend to use FRAM because they are available at Canadian Tire where I get the oil, although I also think you can't get much better than Subaru OEM filters.

I should pick up a case of the OEM filters for future oil changes.

Quick question
This JUST happened to me. Dropped my girlfriend off at work. Coming home car started making a knocking or almost clicking sound. Not constant just random. Check engine light started flashing but didn't stay on. I'm almost home and the car shuts off when I let off the gas. Starts back up but doesn't keep running. Engine seemed to shake a little more than usual and it was making more of that knocking noise. Really hoping I didn't ruin the timing belt because I thought that was a possibility but the car starts back up. And I couldn't exactly locate where the clicking was coming from. Sounded louder near the turbo I just couldn't pin point it. Car starts but doesn't get full power. I just joined this forum if someone has any idea what this could be I would really appreciate it. This is only the second day I had the car out since I replaced the starter battery and radiator. Thanks people

I just got my car out of the shop for this but my notice was a lot worse, had the same issues just no check engine light, and it got really bad, I had a rod knock, a bunch ended up being wrong with it, check out page 4 or 5 or my build forum and ready what all was wrong with it

I put my snow tires/wheels on and adjusted my headlights height because they weren't where they should be. Also put my other car in the garage (storage) for winter. What a sad day fol.
