Question about 1998 Subaru Impreza
Hey there, hope someone can help with this..
My car makes a horrible knocking noise when revs get over about 2k.
Subaru repair agents reckon whole motor is shot and needs replacing. Advised "Big End Bearing" was damaged. However, have since been advised that if this was so, pistons should have appeared out the sides of the motor by now...
Anyone got any ideas on what is causing this and how to fix???
Mine got fix it was the tensioner the part was only $70 easy fix.one shop said it was the whole connecting rod and advise to change engine

It does sound like a big end bearing and yes the piston will come outta the bloc k eventually if you keep driving
it can be replaced no need for a new engine
you will need a engine if it does come outta the side
but to fix a big end is not that much, if u need a new engine for your veichle is about a few grand
but 100 percent big end bearing i done one last week on a suburu wrx imprezza turb all up it was 550 or so
