Subaru Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi,the check engine lamp concerns you are having have they been resolved?The engine ticking noise ,is it affecting the way the vehicle performs or starts dos it get louder as you drive or do you just hear it when stopped,the last question is when are you checking the coolant level colds or warm ,thanks for your time I'll await your reply
Hi,if the coolant level shows low when warm it will probably need a 1/2 pint or less to fill to full no worries here ,the dealer should at least pressure test the system to see if there are any leaks for you.The engine you have is a chain driven motor and there are many noises they make compared to the belt driven engines,if oil level is full and clean I would safely say that the noises you hear are normal based on the information given.The 6 cylinder engine you have is a very reliable engine I have seen many over 200k properly maintained of course.Is the check engine light issued resolved and do you recall what codes the codes were?
So the dealer has had it 3 times and has not been able to solve the complaint yet?Is there another dealer close to you 3 times is unacceptable and it sounds like to me you've lost a little confidence in the car.
Thanks and please let me know if you need anymore help,thanks!!
