    Blew the #1 cylinder!

    well, i just got confirmation that i have managed to blow the #1 cylinder in my 05 WRX. there may be additional damage to the engine, but they haven't even gotten into the thick of it yet. i have most maintenance records showing the oil was changed on a somewhat regular basis, but proving that I changed the oil in my own driveway has become a bit more difficult. the warranty should cover this but since i dont have "stellar" maintenance records, they arent sure about covering this.

    i wanted to know if anyone else has had, or knows of anyone that has had this issue in their WRX. my car only has 36K mi on it and i drive it hard, but not hard enough for something like this to happen.

    help! i may be looking at a full engine replacement here...

    I take pics with my digital camera of the oil/filter receipt and odometer and put it on a cd-rom. Thermo print receipts can fade and be impossible to read two years old. The cd-rom goes in the fire chest.

    see, this is the kinda thing that makes me paranoid sometimes. Do you have any mods on your car? I have an '05 wrx w/ 24k miles as well and its currently cobb stage 2. my engine maintenance is performed at the regular intervals described in the manual +/- 500 miles, but i keep hearing of peoples engines just suddenly blowing up with low milage. i know if that happened to me, they would end up finding out it was modded and id be screwed.

    i am not whole heartily convinced on reliability.
