Can someone tell me if this valve spring recall mandatory
I assume its the reason the dmv is not letting me re-register my car.
Ive gotten 2 registration tickets already.



so monday 2020/07/20 I dropped it off at normreevestoyotasandiego.com and was running PERFECTLY.



(As a side note I put my clutch and flywheel in this after replacing the melted throw-out bearing in about 3 hrs on jack-stands. Worked on RX7's dirt bikes etc since i was young. I know what time it is)Also replaced two plugs so far. so as soon as i mentioned that the service goons at Toyota try to pump up their chest and condescendingly state "that thing uses very specific plugs are you sure you installed the uranium ones?" Hand to god that is his exact quote I almost ran my head through the window. Then I answered, if you mean IRIDIUM plugs, yeah, they were I dont think anyone even makes an 86 plug that is not iridium. After he badgers me about tires and plugs I said yeah how much for plugs, and after a LONG back and forth with his guy on the phone, he comes back with $160.00 !!!!! I said !@#$ no, you can keep my old ones in there. Now my reciept mentions "Customer declines service recommendations" but it doesnt state the $160.00 quote on there as proof that they tried to pull one over on the customer. What a scam, how can these goons get away w this? Better yet, Who can I file a complaint with.

The cost to change the plugs in these is around $400 normally so $160 is a deal.

Oh and you sound like an arrogant **** so have fun with your complaints.

160 for plugs and labor WOULD BE a great deal; except, the service tech made it very clear that because they already have to pull the motor, they "WILL NOT CHARGE ME FOR LABOR." so then I was waiting for a price of roughly 20-30$ each, which was obv fantasy. As for your slight towards my personality, whatever you say. Enjoy your trolling.

Well, DJ_JAZZY_DJENT, it sounds like you are in between a rock (DMV) and a hard spot (dealer to do the work).

Yep, $160 does sound like a lot for the plugs, but I have found that sometimes it's just easier to "pay up" than fight it.

You may try to "bring your own plugs" to the party, that may save you a few dollars.

In light of the entire recall process, that $40 - $80 price difference for the plugs may be minor. You may want to save your ammo for a bigger battle.

So. They are not charging you labour to pull the engine but just for the parts and about half an hour of shop rate to change the plugs. You expect them to change the plugs just for the parts price? You understand it is still extra work right? Do you volunteer your time for free at work? It is how they earn their living and they are not demons because they want to make at least a little money.

I didn't see this TSB in here. I am having this problem of popping noise from the strut mount and searched the forum but did not see anything from subaru about it. There are several threads on suspension noise that point to the top mounts but no mention of a TSB.

I was very close to buying the parts and doing it myself based on the how-to's I've seen here for suspension and then stumbled upon the TSB.

Maybe I'm the only one over 60k still running the stock suspension....

@ichitaka05
Today, brought my 2020 BRZ w/2,000 miles to service for an interior issue and have been hearing this noise when i park. They inspected it and said my car would be covered under some TSB around the strut noise (assuming it's this one). Seems like my car shouldn't be part of this TSB...but thanks for sharing it.

You are correct, that TSB applies to 13-16 BRZ.

My 2013 FRS had a total engine replacement, I have just over 4000 miles on it. The Chirping is just horrendous. I actually got a noise complaint about it as I was sitting parked in a parking lot at night. So...now I need to really try to get this looked at.

I've been researching this for a year now and I've tried every fuel type imaginable with no positive results. Nonethanl 0%, every possible gas station in the area. Chrips non stop and sounds like a UFO rolling down the road, its a legit embarassment as its loud enough to be heard with the windows up and some music on.

However, I love my FRS and dont want to sell it. I do want the chirp gone. So what does Toyota and Surbaru say about this that can be done to fix it? I worry about having the fuel pump changed and risking them damaging or causing more problems for my car. I've not had a single problem with my car, its in immaculate condition.

but, I was referred to this thread to try to see if some type fo newer part replacement exists now in 2021, or if anyone has any actual fixes for it.

After this noise complaint, I can no longer sit parked where I usually do at night. :\
