This is my first car. My baby.
I took her in for a routine timing belt change. They put it on wrong. Failed to turn the camshaft 180 degrees after installing the first of two belts. I waited 4 weeks for this process, then was told that my engine was busted (low compression in three cylinders) It would cost over a grand to fix, but they were willing to "take a look and see what they could do"
I lost my ability to drive, resulting in loss of my catering abilities and loss of a job. I was set back potential thousands of what could of been hard earned dollars. I had no other choice but to set her up until I could afford the proper work that needed to be done. Little did I know that all that needed to be done was putting the timing belt on proper. My parent's next door neighbor heard the story and had it done in two hours! She runs perfect.
We took this to the highest power of CT customer satisfaction, and the 4 month battle to get our money back resulted in complete disregard for what they had failed to do. They chose not to refund my money so this is my response.
This is not the only story. This is My story. I have heard many of which other's beloved cars have either been falsely "fixed" or not fixed at all.
I want to hear your stories. I want to hear everyone of them! Please. If you have a story relating to this, or have ever been jipped by our Huge "trusted" national garage, I want to hear it.
Video responses are preferred.
This video was recorded and edited by my father. All work done to the car, and present in the video is our neighbor Nathan. Thanks to them. My subie is running perfectly again.
300+ HP Subaru Loyale Wagon
A 1990 Subaru Loyale wagon with a tuned up EJ255 from a 2007 WRX.
Drivetrain sourced from a Subaru XT.
The bad part is that this engine was only in the car temporarily. It was
soon installed into a much newer Subaru, which means no more videos. I
really wish I had been able to get more footage!
This car belonged to my Subaru enthusiast buddy, I film many different
vehicles as well as my own.

The third round of the 2014 Red Bull Global Rallycross Championship was
held on a purpose built track outside of RFK Stadium in Washington, DC.
Subaru Rally Team USA drivers, Bucky Lasek and Sverre Isachsen, began the
event brimming with confidence. Nearly two years of development work on the
team's Subaru WRX STI rallycross cars have begun to pay off and the team
has now proven they have the speed to compete at the top. Lasek starts the
weekend at the top of the timesheets, earning the #2 seed. Isachsen
qualifies just .4 seconds behind. But in GRC, you never know whats going to
happen in the final rounds...
On the same weekend in Europe, the STI team from Japan is tackling a
different challenge -- the 24 Hours of Nürburgring race in Germany. Coined
the "Green Hell", the 15-mile ribbon of tarmac through the Eifel Forest has
seen some of the most grueling racing known to man. Over 200 cars will take
the start, and only half are expected to finish. The STI team prepares all
year for this challenge, and has brought the 2015 WRX STI here to win.

How Oil Pressure Works - EricTheCarGuy
How Oil Pressure Works - EricTheCarGuy
Here is the second offering from last weeks set of videos. The most
important thing to note with this is that oil pressure is not created by
the pump but rather the resistance to the outlet flow of that pump and part
of that resistance is the clearances between the bearings and the other
parts inside the engine. If nothing else I hope you are entertained,

1995 Subaru Legacy - full tune-up DIY guide
A video, fully documenting a fairly complete tune-up on a 1995 Subaru
Legacy AWD wagon with an EJ22 engine and 5MT manual transmission.
In this video, I cover:
-rear differential fluid change
-transmission fluid change
-engine oil change
-spark plugs and wires
-timing belt change
-water pump change
-belts and hoses
Most, if not all of this should apply to similar generation Impezas.
