I have an '02 WRX wagon with 800 miles. Two questions.
First, the turbo makes a siren sorta sound (as it spins up/down ?) at low RPMs, say between 2K and 3K. Sounds for all the world like THE MANs comin' after me. (Not that I'd be doing anything with my new toy that would interest the "boys in blue" or anything . . . ;-) Is this normal? (The sound)
Also, I checked the oil right after I took delivery of the car. Almost certain that it was topped off, but when I checked yesterday it was down perhaps 1/4 quart. Is it normal for the WRX engine to use oil (none of my older soobies do unless there is a leak), or is this a sign of worse things to come? Again, I'm not 100% sure about the levels, but I plan to do a change this weekend, and watch it very closely thereafter. TIA for any input here.
