Question about 2006 Subaru Forester
One repair shop said it sounded like the fan/belt not the AC, since I still get really cold air; another said it needed 2 Schrader valves. However, there is no freon odor.
IT may be that there is ice forming on the evaporator in the car. This prevents the ac from working as the thermostat setting is affected and the ac shuts down until the ice clears and the thermostat gets a new reading. Check that the ac evaporator core fins are clean and free of gunk build up. Some times you may be a clink sound as the ice breaks away and falls into the ac box

No, just keep an eye on it to see it does not start staying on longer and longer. The oil pressure sensor my be a little off,and at worse the oil pump is a little weak. Just keep up on the oil changes.3500 miles max.

I have the same problem on my 2.0L 2001 Legacy auto. It began about 1000 miles ago. It has now done 84k. From my online searches this is most probably 'piston slap', and is not serious. To save weight Subaru shaved down the skirts on the pistons. With normal engine wear the pistons will at some point rattle against the cylinders until the engine is heated up and the pistons expand. The rattling should go away after a few minutes. If it persists say 10-15 minutes, it may be another problem.
