So i just bought a 2004 wrx 2.0t a week ago and i loved everything about it. It drove great, had a lot of power and took corners like a beast. Everything was working great until the other day, it was especially cold weather for texas and my car shut off while idling.When i eventuallybgot it to start there was a really bad engine knock. I took it to a mechanic and he said i have a bent connecting rod. Apparently there was a gasket leak causing my engine to hydrolock. Since i tried to forcefully start it by jumping the car in that situation it causd the rod to bend. So now my options are either a full rebuild or buying a new engine it sucks because i literally just bought he car and spentevery dollar i had to get it. Anyone know a good shop in houston?
On the upside for you guys is i have to sell my work emotion cr kais to pay for he repairs
