    What did they do to determine these diagnoses? Also, how do you know it started knocking?

    No different from any other engine.

    First determine whether there is an actual problem. Can you log data from the car? Is there a CEL?

    Then determine why there is a problem. A piston (and/or a lifter even I wonder?) should be detectable starting with a basic compression test and going from there I'd imagine.

    Then determine what caused the problem. Don't just fix it because it'll happen again.

    And so on.

    Clarify and we can help potentially.

    Well I took it to some mechanic in Odessa he said it was a lifter and then I took it to Subaru they did a dyinostics and they said I had no compression on a piston at all. And they wanted to replace the motor for 8000 not including oil radiator fluid exetera. I told them he'll no I'm not gunna pay that much I payed 15k for it with 30k miles an the motor they wanna replace it has 57k miles that's dumb so now I'm stuck and it's just sitting there.

    just out of curiosity, what happened to the 08 hatch you posted about a few months ago that you were having problems with?

    I was wondering the same thing. Didn't they want $16k to replace the motor in that?
