Default Stock '06 WRX exhaust noise

Hey there,

Sorry if this is a common problem or something, I tried search but the problem was a bit too vague to pinpoint certain keywords.

Anyways, I have a 100% Stock '06 WRX and, at about 36k miles, I've noticed my exhaust is starting to act up. It's starting to make a really low rumble, which it has not before, and sometimes when I accelerate I can hear three, somewhat faint but noticeable, "thumps."

It's not the sound of it hitting something else, it's just a low (and I mean pretty low) rumble that kinda "jumps" three times that makes a low "Wooh wooh wooh" sound.

Also, when I turn the key into the notch before you actually turn on the engine, I can hear some weird sounds coming out of the backend of the car, that sounds like it's coming from the exhaust. It's hard to describe but it's a weird water sloshing sound.

I know Subie's are noise makers but I'm a bit concerned about this, haha..

Thanks for any help, and sorry if it has been posted before,

Brian

It's possible. Is there a way I could check it myself without having to go to a mechanic? I'm not sure what to look for in a bad cat or a bad muffler

Sounds more like a fuel pump problem

When I'm driving, I can definitely hear something sloshing around back there. How do I check if it's a fuel pump problem?
