    Every WRX has it...I heard it was the alternator, but I'm not sure. Either way, no need to worry

    I was listening to and worrying about some knocking of my WRX engine too. It seems to come from the front driver-side of the engine and goes away when the engine is warmed up. Might this be the same you hear?

    engine noises

    what the *&%#, $24,000 later and i have a horrible ticking sound, and an obnoxious knock until the car is at operating temp. I just sold my 93 chevy fullsize pickup with 137,000 miles on it, never once did i hear any noises like this. I've been told that the noises i am hearing are charachteristic of the boxer engine, I find it hard to believe that these noises could be acceptable. I'm bringing my car to the dealership within the next two weeks for a definite diagnosis. Hopefully it will all be ironed out.

    NOT NORMAL!

    It's your cam belt tensioner. Get it fixed. Took mine in last week, took 1 day, no more ticking. Subaru USA told me that if the belt was to go, so too would the motor.
