Re: clicking in motor 93 impreza
I would really check the integrity of the filter. I have put new filters on and they did not flow oil very well or were defective. If it is a lifter noise it is a good thing to make sure it is not from lack of oil flow from a poor filter. It will hard face the lifter shim and will continue to tap even after change if left too long. Hope this helps and have a good day.

The oil light will come on if there is no oil or very little oil in the engine. You say you had the oil changed a week ago. Check the oil plug in the engine pan and see if it is very loose or missing.and leaking oil Also check the oil filter to see if it is loose and leaking oil. If you changed the oil using a company then you could have a complaint with them if something is loose or missing. If you changed it yourself you may have to say its a learning experience. Hope you never drove very far with no oil your engine just might be ok.
I dont think there is a connection between an oil change and the gallons per mile.
With that age car, I suggest a Terra engine clean. It will blow away nine years of gunk from the spark plugs, fuel injectors, cylinders and exhaust. Should give you more power, more miles..
I would first inspect/test the power and ground connections for the starter at both ends. Then try to find out if any wiring got damaged in the front end. There is a harness that runs across the lower rad support
It is quite common for the oil level to decrease after a long trip, especially if prior to the long trip the vehicle was mainly used for short trips.
Some oil dilution occurs during short trips (due dissolved contaminants) as the oil rarely reaches it correct operating temperature.
When the oil heats up it boils of these contaminants and thus loses volume.
Ensure there are no oil leaks from the motor, change the oil and note any further oil use during the next 1000km or so.
Most likely, the motor will not use significant oil over the next oil change period.
If it continues to consume oil at the rate you described, you will need to look further for a cause.
get the oxygen sensor checkde out and the maf sensor...sounds like a vacuum leak too...Stop driving it and get it looked at ..if you dont see any loose hose's that are small in dia.. .then check those 2 sensors i spoke of ....
No one can tell you what other problems you would have, they would be playing GOD. Anyway the crank angle sensor is built into the distributor and you should change it asap. An option is to get one from a junk/used car yard. If you wanted it re-manufactured Autozone will have it with lifetime warranty.
This sounds like a problem with a sensor on the engine or transmission. You may want to have your car taken to a diagnostic specialist where they can retrieve "engine codes". Your check engine light is informing you of a possible failure of a sensor or switch in relation to your vehicle's computer. A special computer will be capable of retrieving engine codes and a competent mechanic should be able to decipher and perform whatever repair is necessary.
