Default New outback alot of Q's

Okay so I just bought a 95 legacy outback that needs alot of work and I have a few questions.

1 what is the fluid in the diffs supposed to look like? Mine almost looks like honey.

2 Once the car hits around 10-15 mph I get a bad vibration from the driver side rear of the car. Any ideas?

And if this is not the right forum for the legacy outback please direct me too it.


Thanks

Chris

The dif fluid doesnt look the way it should. I come from the world of 4x4's and change the dif fluid in my jeep religiously and it has never looked like this. Almost looks like there are air bubbles in it. Would this cause the thumping that I hear?

Also something that I fogot to mention earlier is that after I start the car the A/T fluid temp light flashes. I read in the manual that I should have this checked by the dealer. What does this normally mean and is it a big deal for me to fix?

Thanks

Chris

Okay I have sorted everything in this list out and the only thing that I have a problem with is the whirring that seems to be coming from the front passenger side. Starts when I hit about 5mph and doesnt really seem to go away. Any more ideas?
