    Question Engine noise

    Hi y'all,I have a 2020 WRX STi, 700 miles only and I have a weird noise when at normal operating temp, it sounds like a grinding knocking noise at around 2 to 3000 rpm you can also hear it when you change gear when you put the clutch in to shift other than that it runs great.Any ideas ?

    It's going to be difficult to say anything without a video or audio clip. Can you get us one?

    In the meantime, have you read about any other owners having this issue?

    Definitely need a video. If you live near the dealership, I'd swing by and have a tech listen, since you're definitely still under warranty.

    Update ....

    Went to another dealer, who actually gave me a possible explanation for the issue, he told it is probably the harmonic’s on the heat shields around the turbo and down pipes, he also took me to try the 2 STi’s they had in stock and tried both then and they make the same noise so for me it’s normal . It also looks like I’ve found me a new dealer for all my servicing and warranty work
