Black with some stuff
Installed AccessPort four days ago, car dead now
What the hell happened!?! Right before my boss arrived to go fishing, I dissconnected the battery in my car for a few minutes. I Started the car up (no problems at this point) and drove about a quarter mile and parked the car. After fishing for about 4 hours, I packed up and started to drive home. I noticed a little noise (thought it was a loose heatshield or something), and also noticed that the car hesitated and was low on power. As I drove on, the noise got louder and louder, and became apparent that it was not a loose heatshield. There was a horrible knocking from the engine. I've never heard anything like this before...I know there has to be some serious damage internally.
I am so drained from freaking out about what just occourred with my car, that I am falling asleep now, but I was hoping to get some feed back from some of you. What do you all think happened to my car?
By the way, I Have a Vishnu Up pipe, Vishnu Crank Pulley, Vishnu intercooler hoses, Bosal Downpipe, and third cat eliminator, along with AccessPort. I just got the AP, and flashed to stage II four days ago. Oh yeah, and my car is a 2005 Saabaru.
Please help with ideas! Am I going to need a rebuild? Maybe a new engine? What's the worst case scenario? What is the worst case scenario (cost) for a rebuild? Are there any Subaru Gurus around the Raleigh, NC area that I could convince to take a look at my car?
Feeling sick to my stomach...
The next morning: I just wanted to add that I am not blaming the AP, or Cobb for what happened to my car. My car was however performing fine until I installed the AP, and then continued to perform fine until last night when I cleared the ECU's memory by disconnecting the battery.
