Having problems with your 1998 Subaru Impreza ?

Knocking noise from engine at > 2000 RPM.. any ideas??

\015 Hey there, hope someone can help with this.. \015\012\015\012My car makes a horrible knocking noise when revs get over about 2k. \015\012\015\012Subaru 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... \015\012\015\012Anyone got any ideas on what is causing this and how to fix???\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 18-09-2017

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
\015\012it can be replaced no need for a new engine
\015\012you will need a engine if it does come outta the side
\015\012but to fix a big end is not that much, if u need a new engine for your veichle is about a few grand
