i dont know if this will help at all but i went and pulled off the intake manifold earlier and by looking down at the ports of the #1 cylinder, i can see that both valves are still connected but there is a build up of carbon and moist oil on the port.

take it to Subaru or some other mechanic you trust if it doesn't start then you might have snaped a rod and its fallen down into your oil pan thus its wedged and stopping things from moving a saw some similar sound in a forester forum a while back also is it the belts just wondering don't think so thought i would ask
