Cool Cold Start Idle?

Just got the car back from Subaru after 2 days. I had dropped it off for a weird sounding idle after a cold start in the mornings. It was a wop-wop-wop sound. (No, its not a Italian helicopter.)
Anyways the sound would disappear after warmup and only made that sound after sitting out overnight. Subaru said it was a timing belt tensioner that was out of adjustment. This is covered in the warranty. I gotta see tomorrow morning if this was fixed. I also had them look at the grooves cutting into the front rotors. They also said this was normal due to the "special coating"
Whatever, I kinda think it was a hokey explanation because the old RS didn't have that problem. I just told it them because I want documentation in case there is a recall for those front rotors or they go bad. I don't trust Subaru's maintenance explanations. This is a monkey for them.....:monkey:

Thats good information for anyone else whose WRX may make that noise. At the next meet we need to take a tally and see how many WRX's and RS's have the grooved rotors. If that is normal then they should all have it right?

Im not sure with car dealers these days. Sometimes they say bogus stuff like a timing belt tensioner was outa specs. If that was true the belt would of probably already jumped a couple of teeth and all hell woulda broke loose and 16 valves later...wow.

My car makes a different sound everytime I start it up. hahaha. Grooves in the rotors sounds like an issue if you can feel them with your fingernal? Oh well later

Thumbs up

The car sounds better starting in the morning now. Of course it hasn't been in the 10's or below. As for the grooves in the rotor, not only can I feel it with my fingernail, I can see it good! At least they have documentation on it.
