Need advice on 2006 Subaru Forrester

Asked by Jul 01, 2017 at 01:09 AM about the 2006 Subaru Forester 2.5 X

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Just brought 2006 Subaru 10 days ago changed oil
got everything up to date. Love the car cleaner as a
pen . After changing oil and using Lisa's and sea
foam because of miles 167,000 everyday I start it
up it sounds like a rod knocking but within 15
minutes or less it purrs like a kitten till the next day
No other known problems other than having a seat
belt from cargo area stuck in a holder in back seat.
Every mechanic I have talked to has a million
different idea. I really need help. I paid $2000 for car
as I was misquoted the true price of $3995. . I am a
72 year old widow and trust me they see me
coming. I have put 400 miles on it in 10 days up
mountains and down interstate and around town.
Please can someone help me?
Really don't know about trim it is 6 cylinder
automatic AWD.  HELP

I would change the oil and filter again without adding any addiatives and see if the noise goes away.

Ask around and find an honest mechanic. Have them listen to the engine to see if it is really a rod knock.

See if it needs higher grade fuel or Lubegard Bio/Tech Engine Oil Protectant with LXE® Technology in oil it helps with start up lifter noise ect. may help out.

If the noise stops after a while I doubt it is a rod bearing but something is causing the noise so don't ignore it and have it diagnosed.
