I had ziptie do a compression test on a lgt at like 65k miles, I was between 105 and 115 on all 4, said it was perfectly normal and nothing to worry about.

And I think from the factory, Subaru says it should be like 140, zip tie has never seen one above 130. 160 sounds really off.

He said you need ngk. All the plugs were ngk aside from the misfiring cylinder. He put an NGK in and bam...misfire gone.

Ok so thats effing sweet (i feel stupid, but i wasnt the one who put that plug in)

My NEW QUESTION IS, what are you guys getting for compression here at elevation in salt lake? I was at 160-170 at sea level but the mechanic said i was at 100psi on all cylinders (not sure if this was hot or cold) here in salt lake
Misfire is back......I....F#$%ing .....Hate......This......Car.......

So im tired of all this guess and check bullsh#$%. I want it taken care of and done with. Should I just take it to mark miller subaru or despain or solid auto works. I am tired of this F#$% thing

Solid. Is it on the same cylinder? Might be a bad coil pack. Try swapping coil packs and see if it follows.

Default Threw a rod bearing..

Im pretty sure i threw a rod bearing and from what all the mechanics that have listened to it try and start they say the same. I called Rallysportdirect and talked to a guy there for a little.

Im pretty sure ill have to replace the engine i was thinking of going with the 2.5 sti engine. The guy at rallysport said every thing should all work if i just buy the 2.5 short block, get the pistions re machined, a retune for the ECU and a new oil pump.

Any ideas? or advice as far as everything goes with this?

Search "hybrid motor". Should yield you the results you want.

Yep i did that, and so did the shop i took it to. Didnt change anything. I have a bad feeling it is something more serious because now my check engine light has switched from solid and flashing cruise, to blinking check engine...

From reading I have a feeling it is a valve issue? it is just so frustrating that it goes away and drives fine then comes bac randomly.

Either way I will call solid on monday if they are open.

I had the same issue. I changed my plugs to 1 step colder and made sure the gap was good and it went away.

Solid is closed on Monday. Do a leak down test. Burnt valves on subarus are not un-common.

Darn. Guess ill wait till tuesday.

I just moved to Salt Lake. I dont have much of anything to work on my car. Just got a wrench set and a car jack but...thats about it.

Anyone have a ballpark idea of what it would cost to fix something like that?

If it is valves i'm guessing the 1500+ ball park. Going to have to do the timing belt, pull the motor and fix it all.

ok, so i have done alot of research into a hybrid motor. However they dont seem very reliable. Does anyone know anything else about this? I plan on calling solid and metric motor tomorrow but im not quite sure if this hybrid motor would be a good route to take.
My 04 Wrx is my daily driver and she is currently out of commission due to what i believe is a broken rod bearing. I've been looking into costs and stuff this week and i plan on diving into it by the end of this week or even beginning of next week. Any ideas on courses of action?

Take it down to either Solid or Despain and get an idea of what your looking at for pricing.

Dan the man! Seeing as how you are a VW owner, which VW forum have you found to be the most informative and useful in terms of researching the different GTI and Golf R models?

I've been casually reading a few threads here in the rumor section and want to start diggin a little deeper.

careful on vortex, you might end up with a rusted looking hood, roof racks with useless crap on them and 205 tires on a 10" wheel poking out the fenders.

Well that's great, that's what I'm going for.

Now, what is the best recommendations for used gypsy clothes and tattoo parlors that specialize in chest pieces?

I'm not buying anytime soon. I just kind of want to start reading up, I may consider one or two models, 5-6 years down the road.

Eh, the VW forums are pretty horrible. What are you wanting to know about them? The new R looks ****ing awesome. 296hp and leaps and bounds better than a subaru in terms of refinement. While my MKVI gti is slower than a new wrx, im still willing to bet it will out handle stock for stock. The interior finish is awesome, its a quiet ride and the factory sound system doesnt block ****. Honestly, my GTI has been the most enjoyable vehicle I have owned thus far. I really dont see me owning a subaru again (possible but unlikely).

My first interest would be whether or not the VW brand has found the ability to be reliable to an owner for the long haul, if cared for and treated properly. If I ever consider buying a new or near new car again, I'd like to know the car has the potential to have a long life expectancy, with good reliability. My 05 fozzy is nearing 100k and has been stellar so far.

But as you mentioned, the gti's and r's have a lot of refinements and style that really catch my eye. Even though I'm just casually reading, those are the only two cars that I would consider getting into down the road. Maybe a nice accord.

From what I have seen and read, the gti and R would be the only models worth considering. From what I've seen, both of these models have been reliable... The other vw's not so much. Not sure if its because the gti and R models are the only ones still made in Germany while
The others are made in Mexico, or if they just put more attention into them. I've owned my car barely over a year now with 23xxx miles. So far, not one issue. I plan on keeping this car for at least 3 years. Maybe 5. Depending on where I end up living when I go to purchase my next car, if heavily consider a R, possibly in dsg.
