Hi there. Hoping I might find someone here to help me out...
My 2003 WRX started shaking violently this morning at idle after a 60 mile stretch of highway driving. The check engine light came on, and thankfully I was 5 miles from the Subaru delar that had serviced my car. The head mechanic put it in neutral, popped the hood, and 3 mechanics just stared. They had never seen a WRX with the engine rocking violently. No noises, just rocking.
They have yet to pull the engine, but I was told it completely lost compression in only 1 cylinder... There was almost no oil. I just had the oil changed 2600 miles ago, and checked it less than 500 miles ago. It was perfect. I am up to date on the 30 and 60 thousand mile service, and just a few thousand away from the 90.
This car has been perfect. My question is, what happened? They had no idea. Does anyone have any ideas? Ever heard of anything like this happening to a WRX?
Thanks in advance!
