Default I could use some OT Subaru

2009 FXT. I was getting a sort of trumpet sound when the turbo spooled, but only after it got warm. I suspected a leak. I took things apart and found this on the engine-side of the inter cooler hose. I hope the image is large enough to provide sufficient detail.



I made a temporary fix by pitting some electrical tape behind the flange and using some permatex. Everything was running and I drove until it got warm. I took it into boost, no noise, but right after I got a CEL and went into limp mode.

I figure the ECU learned to run with a leak and dumped too much fuel. I reset the ECU (disconnect the battery, press the brake pedal, etc.) I still have a cell and it is running like crap.

What do I look for?

an inconvenience,
properly considered.

Replace the flange with a wax ring for a toilet from your local hardware store. Should be right as rain.

Did the tape get sucked into the engine?

No. The tape is behind the seal, and I use it to hold the loose bit in place for the permatex application. And it would have had to travel all through the inter cooler.

You are probably right. I am ordering the part. Bit it has been making the noise for some time.

Have you posted in the tech forums? You might get better responses, like, you know, correct ones.

Yes, but in here we tell him that it's totaled and to blast it with piss, which is significantly more helpful.

Looks like a Borkd Explodimister Kugelfliiger vented coupling valve. Put it back in exactly like it was. The trumpeting sound is simply in your imagination. Without it, a CEL will trigger from excess capitation. You can't fix that easily.

Oddly enough, as long as the question is asked with the proper tone, you're probably more likely to get the legitimate correct answer in OT than in the tech forums. There are a lot of people with a lot of good Subaru experience here that don't venture outside of OT.

PS: Chapstein, I agree with skywaffles, it's totaled.

I drive a Forester as well. Running like crap, so you still have a leak. Vacuum leak at idle will result in stumbling and general roughness, then the boost leak results in the engine feeling weak and running badly. Did that piece get blown off the y-pipe?

still thinking about the newer model Forester with the new motor (RB25 or something?). Coworker just picked up the baller edition with the adaptive cruise control.... must.... resist!

I'd like a turbo, but don't really trust that it'll be as trouble-free.

Seems to me you're getting about as much help as you would posting your forester problems on a mustang board.
