The valve noise is loud enough to hear a clacking inside my vehicle with windows up, but since it has done it since it was new I figured it was yet another Subaru annoyance. Do they all do this?
My car sounds like a tractor in this range. Very noticeable valve clatter. Has done it since I got it. I've always assumed it's normal.
