HI I recently had to replace a 97 jd25 in my 97 leg. outback. The only engine avialible was a JDAM motor. After the engine swap the car started up with no noises or misses. After about a minute the engine started to rattle like the rod bearings were gone. I pulled that engine and had it replaced with another only to have the same problem after about 2 minutes
