Engine 0n 2002 Impreza OBS
This is my second rear wheel bearing to be replaced. I do think my engine was one of those lemons you hear about at least from a noise stand point. MPG I get about 25 highway and 20 local. I bought the Sube because I wanted it to run for 20 years....(BTW, after my 60,000 maintenance they held it over night because of engine noise but said it was gone in the morning). It never burns oil and has never had any leaks,
I told them to go ahead and replace the bearing. (I have accumulated some Subaru Bucks) Besides, I can't afford a new car. This one is paid off.
A friend of mine owns a Midas shop and his guys told me just to put in some Lucas product. Lube the lifters?
I asked the dealership to give me a quote on any option they could suggest to get at the root of the problem. Dropping the pan? Taking the cover off? These were some of the things thrown out. I will write back when I get quotes.
I haven't done the Timing Belt yet.....
What would you guys do? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
