Hey everyone. I'm new to the site and just bought a 2006 Impresa WRX. I had a friend look over everything as I know nothing about this car. He told me it's a stage 2 car with lots of after market stuff. I just have a few questions. The main one is when I'm gunning it say in 4th gear when I hit about 4500rpm all of a sudden the car stops going and I have to shift to 5th. When it kicks me out of 4th my check engine light comes on solid, cruise control comes on flashing. So I went to auto zone to get a code read out and it gave me a P0244 - waste gate selinod a... So I just had the guy clear the code as the car seemed to still drive fine. I was wondering why it did that and if I need a new waste gate? or did I possibly do damage? I've done this 3 times now in the last 2 weeks learning to drive and shift gears before this happens.
