I have a 2003 Subaru Forester 2.5 that suddenly started making a ticking noise upon accelerating and the check engine light came on, when sitting still it makes and these are not my words but my sons a wont, wont, wont noise.It has ran great up to this date and has about 76,000 miles on it. Any ideas?

@peachy71 I see this is your first forum post, so welcome to the forum from Oregon! :biggrin:

What CEL - check engine light code or codes do you have? :confused:

Hi & welcome!

In this order - check oil level and have a general look atop and underneath the engine for any obvious signs of issues.

Then you then need to get the code read to see what the problem might be. Some auto parts stores also offer this service. If the noise gets worse, consider getting a towtruck to a garage.

Not checked the codes yet, my husband has a code reader that I'm going to get him to hook it up to tonight I was just a little afraid for our son to drive it home in fears of it causing damage.

I hear you. I'd say if in any doubt at all, don't drive it. Engine noises and check engine lights happening together are not normally good news.
