See if you have a local Subaru forum or check the classifieds here. Sometimes Craigslist also has stuff.

I picked up my 57c gram lights and falken fk452s for $200. Couldn't of got a better deal.

Default Help!

hey guys i need your help. My car has been making some noises. I am pretty sure i have pin pointed the part that is making the noise.

Here is the noise that i notice:
http://youtu.be/NUjGgK-iQWU

It happens at a cold start, or when i turn off the car for maybe 30 min or so.

And now recently like maybe an hour ago it became this:

This noise so far is constant no matter if it is a cold start or warm start. but i haven't driven it because i am afraid the pulley or something will break and then i am stuck.

I tried using the belt conditioner thinking maybe the grease or something dries out and that is what is causing the noise, but now i am stumped. I also tried taking it to the dealership during the first noise, but they could not hear it. They wanted to keep it overnight, but me being a college student my car is the only transportation i have to school, and they don't want to give me a rental car unless they know where it is coming from.

^^I have/had noticed that first noise, on mine while cold starts, once it warms up though its gone, I am under the impression that it is just the belt against the pulleys, and it is not causing any issues, because well, I haven't noticed any issues.

While that last video though, I've never heard on my car, almost sounds like a pully might be loose? Or something of the sort. Maybe check your belt...(take it out and see if it might be torn or cracked). That is my .02

yeah, i just took it to my friend to check it out. he said the first sound might be a alignment problem, or the belt's V rib might be worn down or free rock of a pulley. but i agree the 2nd sound is very weird i've never heard of it myself. but i plan on bringing it to the dealer thursday if the sound persists tomorrow.

the blue is the best for pictures, but it doesn't look to appealing in person to me. so i ended up buying a white led one for the dome light. it looks pretty clean.





oh and i finally installed my lip :] now im just waiting on my mudflaps from flapatax.

Alright, so I brought it in and they said that my powersteering pump was leaking on to the belt. So they need to replace the powersteering pump and the belts, they quoted it at $900. Is that a fair price?

It's the labor that kills you. They, basically, have to do a timing belt change where they remove pretty much everything on the front of your engine to get to the pump.

Get a second opinion (without telling them what it is) and they get a quote from someplace other than a dealer.

I take it that you are out of warranty?
