Typed a lengthy story and computer ends up dying and I lose it all.... long story short, Left buddies house Thurs night in the early morning, noticed STRONG burning smell and smoke in headlights while reversing. Start it Friday morning and almost set smoke detector off in my garage with all the whitish blue smoke coming out of exhausts. Ended up posting in a local Subi forum, was told to let vehicle idle with oil filler cap off, if smoke came out of oil filler neck the rings are toast, sure enough, blueish white smoke coming out of oil filler neck. Seems motor is shot....again. Car's either going to sit in garage for about 2 months until I can save up the money to afford upgraded components, or I will try and file warrantee claim. I believe my warrantee ends at 36k miles but my pops said he thinks drivetrain goes to 100k so I will check. But even if so I don't want a stock replacement because it's going to go again. I seriously don't believe I drive this car hard anymore. If the way I still drive is considered 'hard' on this car then I have no choice to upgrade the components.
Please no bashing, I didn't come here for that, I'm really distraught right now as you can all imagine. Suggestions or opinions on a good way to go about this would be great. Thanks guys, by the way hope you all had a good 4th, I know I enjoyed same great Filet Mignon off the BBQ and enjoyed some time with my family.
