Dont think that your alone when it comes to problems. I changed my oil at 21,000 and forgot to replace the crush washer. Lost 3 quarts of oil. I didnt notice this till 22,000 miles when I smelled oil burning off of the header! Replaced the washer, cleaned everything, and now at 24,289 miles (I know its time for an oil change and another 1.79 washer) I still smell oil stopped or when the heat is on! Stuff happens. Hopefully my car will last me till they stop producing baja's and I can get either a legacy turbo, or WRX (parents are worrying about part availibility issues once production stops even though I LOVE my little AWD truck, and I do mean LOVE!) or hit 100,000 miles to replace my subaru with another subaru. This little problem wont stop me from loving subaru. Its a car, and a damn good one. All cars have their flaws you know.
