Default Think my outback finally died. :( EJ25D Rod Knock?

There's rod knock, from what I believe a failed spark plug boot---.

The spark plug boot on 2 cylinders were quite lose, reseated, no improvement. replaced w/ generic (but continuity tested.), no improvement. replaced coil pack, no difference. rod knock.

sometimes it stalls, but it still moves, albeit not fast at all. and bang bang bang bang bang bang bang.

Is this in your opinion, rod knock? Oil was not low, it showed in the dip stick although black (but changed, a year ago-- less then 2500 miles). Castrol GTX 10W-40.


Personally I would've welcomed head gaskets/overheating.

Can't see how a bad/loose ignition wire would cause a failed rod.

Trip a misfire, yes.

Rod/bearing issues are usually either low oil or bad oil (cheap or not changed often enough).

Any CEL?

I hope this isn't the case. I haven't looked at it, just let it be sitting. I guess it's time to remove the timing belt covers and turn the timing belt to see if timing marks are off. I hope they aren't....

Oh well, worse comes to worse part out for the poor 96'.
