    You will have to give us more info than that!!!!!!!! Oh yeah STOP YELLING AT US!!!!! Does the car have any aftermarket parts on it I.E. BOV, downpipe, intake anything that would need a tune for the car to run properly? Have you done any maintenance to the car since you purchaced it like spark plugs, some kinda oiled air filter that could have maybe been over oiled and now the MAF sensor needs to be cleaned. It could be anything with the description that you gave so you will have to narrow it down a lot more.

    i actualy have a similar problem but not this bad and omnyl happens sometimes its sounds and feels like the thrust bearing, but in your case seems more like the clutch plate hasnt been centred proply or the flywheel hasn been torqued correctly, could also be your tune if you have a bad tune or an aggressive one wrx's are prone to bunny hop low down especially if your not very good at the clutch, it could be other things aswell but i poiinted out the main ones hope this helped

    He did a clutch install then had Midas re-do it?

    I wouldn't let Midas touch my brakes, let alone the clutch.. actually, I would get uncomfortable with them just looking at my car.

    Holey!!.... I had a dealership quote me $600 for clutch & flywheel install and when I told them I would just do it myself they ended up doing it for $300 and gave me a warranty on it.




    When did the car start acting up?
