Unhappy I think I brokeded it (New question PG.2)

I wanna cry.... moment of silence please... Bow your heads!!!!!

So here is my new dilemma my front end is clanking!! It sounds like its coming from the driver's side. It only does it in first gear while it is engaged!? IF 1st gear is still engaged but I press in the clutch then it shuts up!??? I'm lost! COULD it be 1st gear taking a dump?? I haven't abused this tranny yet!!! Some one come have a beer and cry with me!

And after i rolled my fenders so i could hit the track!!!!!!!!!

GL with subaru. When my clutch started piecing out they wanted like a $500 deposit to diagnose, and if they decided not to warrenty I would have to pay them another $600 or have the car towed out and loose my $500

Not really deposit... its a tear down fee. basically they want to see if there are any heat spots on the fw and what condition everything is in. if it was a warrantiable item (manufacturere defective part, not threw abuse) then you wouldnt have to pay for the tear down time. if theres all kinds of blue on fw (many of you have seen piks of customers fw on my cell at meets) then that would be signs of a person abusing and or not knowing how to drive thus being the determining factor weather or not to warranty anything in there.

basically the techs get paid to do work. i dont know any techs that work for free (if any of you do please have them call me). thats why theres a tear down fee.

but yeah im working today.

true, but it doesnt cost 1200 to do a clutch and I have to gamble 500 and if I loose I pay another 700, if I win I pay 0. Or I can go to anyone else and get it done for 800

Not always true... my 02 had a clogged clutch line from day one; the clutch would never fully engage or disengage, giving the appearance of abuse, when there was no user instigated abuse. She ate 3 clutches before I decided to pull the entire hydraulic system, during which the clog was discovered. SOA was zero help... of course.

Completely, except for an exhaust, IIRC. The first clutch went at less than 7000 miles.

that sux... but dont feel bad the record for clutch to get burnt in suby is 450 miles. the lowest ive repaired has been 1500 miles. so what was the excuse the dealership gave you when you tried to have them repaired.... did u get the repair done at a dealership and if so.... u did have a limited warranty on it so they shoulda helped u out. 2nd if your clutch had a clogged line in it your clutch pedel would not work properly. so the dealership upon fixing your vehicle should have test drove it and found that to be the problem.

Actually, Power (or whatever they were called back then) did cover the first one. But said they wouldn't do it again. When the second one went out, there was no way I was going to pay the dealer fee to tear it down after talking to them about it, esp since they wouldn't install a third party clutch. A Exedy HyperSingle was installed at DC. That lasted less and 1000 miles. That's when I decided to replace the entire system, cylinders and all. After finding the clog, SOA assumed zero responsibility because, "a Subaru technician didn't find the problem". At least offering me a new clutch line would have been something.
