If the OP overfilled maybe his issue was that and its fixed. Get your oil level corrected and see if it persists. If it does, do a compression and leak down test. My #4 was gone. Just like most others with this issue.
ehh. i hope its not ringland. this is a brand new '13 wrx. with only 2700 miles. what would be the symptoms of ringland failure? will i notice anything while im driving? because the car runs and feels fine. im sure its nothing big, but its never too late to worry about things like this.
