I have a 2006 Subaru B9 Tribeca with about 109,000 miles on it. Today I backed out of my driveway, heard a loud rattling noise, a metallic type noise, as I pressed on the gas and as I turned. This continued, and when I got off the highway about 10 miles later, my check engine light (steady) and cruise control light (blinking) came on. Drove to an auto parts place and they scanned for a code, he said it was an intake control valve solenoid problem.
Has anyone encountered something like this? What is the repair cost for this? The guy I spoke to who scanned the code seemed to think the engine might have to be taken apart? Can I still drive it? Hoping for better news.... bringing it to the mechanic on Monday.
Thanks for any help!
