  1. General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    Recently I just got a 2015 wrx 30k miles with some mods already done to it. Mods: AEM intake, cobb catted exhaust, grimmspeed charge pipe and intercooler I believe it was protuned by Mikytuning? Because the loaded map is "old owner name_MikeyTuned_15_wrx". Basically, my issues are that on cold...

  3. Maintenance, service, and repair
    I recently got Into a pretty minor accident only thing that was damaged( I thought) was headlight, bumper, radiator, and hood, all replaced with no issues. Once all together I turned it over and it started fine but was running rough. After putting my scanner on, it tell me that cylinders 1 and 3...
  4. General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    Hey y'all. This is my first time ever posting in this forum. I'm new to car stuff and just recently installed the cobb redline cold air intake and the accessport. I'm running the 93oct stage 1 OTS tune for now. It was running just fine for the past week after installing. Never seen the DAM get...

  7. General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    I just installed new pads, rotors, and coilovers on the car. After a whole day of work, test drove around the block and there is a constant rubbing sound (almost sounds like sandpaper/grinding) coming out of the front left wheel well. Could be more than one wheel well, but I'm by myself so it's...
  8. General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    Hey all, I am new to this forum site. I have heard good things about this site as my friends have had lots of help here. My stock 17 WRX 6spd MT just started having a strange issue. Intermittently, it will just start building peak boost at low throttle input in 2nd and 3rd gear. It doesn’t...
  9. General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    First time on a forum but I've talked to everybody I can find and can't seem to figure out the problem. I have a 2009 wrx and fully built the motor finally got it all back together and buttoned up. I'm having an issue where when I turn the key to the start position the whole car(including all...

  11. General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    Yesterday, I installed some LED footwell lights in my 2020 STI. They work perfectly, but now all of a sudden when I turn on my car, i get a message saying “MFD needs to be checked” on my multi-function display. In addition to this, my AC controls don’t work anymore so I have no AC. I’m thinking...
  12. General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    When in boost I hear a loud groan coming from the engine bay. This could be linked to the code that got thrown on the other day (PO244) for turbo wastegate solenoid. Light turned off and back on, I think it may come on because I am overboosting (new to stick shift) which I read on another forum...
  13. General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    The radiator cooling fans on my '09 are not turning on and my car is overheating when idling as a result. I can get them to turn on by taking a screwdriver and flicking them in the direction they're supposed to turn, but they won't turn on on their own. This seems like the motors for the fans...

    Hello everyone, I have a 07 wrx that I need to pass deq emissions with. I have been looking for an oem downpipe and was wondering if I could just pick up a 02-05 downpipe and just purchase the 3” to oem exhaust adapter instead. Let me know! Thanks
  15. General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    Was out of state for a month and maybe accessport drained the battery. Got to the car and did a jump start and wanted to crawl home (2 hour drive). After about 1.5h in the drive it suddenly lost all power. Throttle wouldn't respond and it just came to a stop. Tried to jump start it a few times...

    I have a 2003 Impreza RS and the engine is overheating. I have had the radiator pressure tested, they let it sit, and there is no issue there. No leaks anywhere in the system. Just changed out the thermostat and the problem has continued. Any Ideas? I can email you the video of it steaming up...
