Hey there, I just recently purchased an 09 silver wrx hatchback a few months ago. Had about 30k on it when I bought it and it's at 34k now coming up on my first oil change.
Quick question before getting into my issue though, does the engine oil light show up every 5k on subarus too?
Anyways, I recently noticed when I drive the car for about 5-10 miles to work, I'll notice little clinking noise like something is loose when it's on idle. What worries me is that it's very noticeable and seems to be coming from the turbo side. The noise will however go away when the car is hot enough after I drive it for about 20-30minutes.
Has this happened to anyone else? Should I be worried? It's different from the knocking sound I heard online that everyone is talking about when these wrx's were not broken in correctly.
I will attempt to capture the sound on my phone next time I get it. It does seem to happen more often when it's below freezing. I live in NC so temp dips below 32 here and there.
So far I only have a set of turboxs cat back installed. I have a turbo gauge but I'm pretty sure it's installed from factory.
Any help will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
