Default Help!! 2013 Wrx

so i got my 2013 wrx in october. Yesterday in the snow, i decided to go slide in the snow with a few friends. I was sliding from 3500rpm-5000 and shifting into second. I took a turn and when i went to put it into second it was as if i missed second but i know i couldnt have. I went back to put it in first and it blocked me out. I said to myself no way my trans gave out. It wasnt as if i was launching it or something so i thought it shouldnt have happened (correct me if im wrog) Omw home launching of second i came to a red light in neutral. Then second blocked me out. I drove about 15 city miles launching off 3rd it was a PAIN! Now my clutch is gone and my 1st and 2nd. I have a turboback, intake and a accessport. I was thinking putting it back to stock and unmarrying cobb. Would subaru cover the transmission?

A lot depends on your VIN. You should post the last 8 numbers of it, just so Subaru can read your post and flag your vin for abuse and modifications. Then when your wanker butt returns to stock to try to get something you screwed up fixed under warranty, the dealer can have a good laugh.

Take it in and be prepared to potentially pay for the entire repair. If you treat your new car like a toy, then this stuff can happen.

Yea be ready to dish cash bc even though u put it back to stock they can back track when the ecu has been flashed with an access port or been custom tuned then theyll say we set the boost to 10.7psi in 1st n 2nd gear so u dont blow them 14.3 in the rest and ask u how u managed to do that so think of a good story lol

What? So you modded the car and want to know if Subaru should pay for repairs? No, they should not. And please do us all a favor. Work on sentence structure.

Not only that, but continued to launch in each gear until he experienced the same problems.

OP is either a troll or extremely stupid.

in his "slight" defense. it sounds like hes using the word "launched" as in he started from a stop in X gear because Y gear was "blocked out" as in he had to feather the clutch. not a full on clutch dump at redline.

but no, subaru should not fix your transmission regardless.

Yes op, Please be ready to have to pay even if you unmarried your accessport thinking it will take your car back to stock. Subaru can look into past history and notice your ecu has been flashed by someone other then subaru. Your stock boost may be around 10.7psi from the factory but your upgraded map may have put out 14.3psi instead. They most likely will ask you how this happened while laughing at you for creating such a good story of improper grammar just like the person I have qouted above.

even though he wants to put all original parts back on and reflash his ecu back to oem specs they will be able to back track when his comp has been flashed and since his car has been abused they wont cover it

The ECU uses a solid state ROM chip(s). Any time the ECU is flashed, the action is recorded in the chip's memory. There is no way to mask it and the dealer can easily find out. ;]

I have no idea how old the op is but if he is still living with his parents I can see how the conversation went:

Mom/Dad: "if you keep driving like that you will ruin your brand new car!"

Juan: "No, mom/dad I'm not hurting it at all its made to handle this kind of driving"

Tutorial for fixing the wrx:

1. Un-marry cobb accessport
2. List it for sale on NASIOC for a good price
3. Uninstall your "turbo back" ... list it on NASIOC for a good price
4. Uninstall your "intake" ... you know whats next right? List it on NASIOC for a good price
5. Drive the car to the dealer and have it fixed
6. Post the car for sale on NASIOC... for a good price
7. Search NASIOC's classified car for sale section for a civic... for a good price
8. Drive the piss out of it all day long, 4800-9000rpms... save gas money... for a good price maybe add engine oil later depending on which model you buy?
9. buy NASIOC members who viewed this thread some beer with all of the money you saved and stress you have saved us from




Now that I look more into it... I think Uncle Scotty is to blame for this guys tranny breaking hahahaha
