I had it looked at and they don't even know And it just reached 167,000 miles haven't even breached 200.


Most likely lifter tick as Cody said, Subarus with the EJ22 like in your car have hydraulic valve lash adjustment and are notorious for lifter tick, changing oils will help it but to completely fix it could mean tearing into the engine and removing the lifters and cleaning out the little ports in them or possibly but not as likely replacing them. I had to do the same thing with my 93.


NOt what you guys thought thanks for your help tho somthing a little more serious
