    Question Please help! Just a couple of questions

    so I've read that everyone pretty much reccomends mobil 1 oil, but what type of filter should I use?


    Also this just started to happen yesterday, everytime I drive straight, the rear of my car make kkinda like a rubbing noise. It only happens when tires rotate to a specific spot. any ideas what this could be?

    Mobil 1 is very popular but there are never ending debates on what oil is best. I use Mobil 1 oil & filters but I'm not exactly a engine oil SME. (sme = subejct matter expert)

    are you the only owner of the car? if not the prior owner might have had a bit to much fun and not told ya. id say have a friend who knows a bit more about your situation drive with you, or take it to a subie dealer.
