Default Wierd Problem

I have an '05 baja turbo with a 4EAT and a few engine mods to give it aroud 258hp. So heres my problem, everytime i turn to the left with my foot on the gas the right side wheel starts to make a grinding noise, if my foot is of the gas it does nothing, also it started to make the grinding noise when i am going down the interstate now also. it does not do it when i turn to the right. I just changed the wheel bearings and cv shaft and that made no difference at all. I am thinking that i might be the transmission but I don't know why that would only do it turning left. But the bigger problem is that we just got our first subaru dealership down here and they said that they don't work on them yet because none have broken so far, so I am pretty much on my own. Any help is appreciated

I had a similar problem with our 98 Outback a few years back. It had about 100,000 miles on it at the time. Changing the transmission fluid and filter cured the problem. The noise hasn't come back and the Outback is pushing 177,000 miles.

Subaru Stars RE:Wierd Problem

I had something like that happen to my 02 Golf TDi., the symptoms were the same @ 100,000 mi. the differential dropped a pin and it tore-up the transmission case.
On VW's that's common on the TDi's & VR6 up to 03, due to the constant torque.
I did not see that as a problem with Subaru, that why I bought the Baja.

Default check that you do not have a brake dragging

Check for a dragging break. I had a piston that was frozen that caused a strange sound I could not localize on for a few days. I would have sworn that it was not from the breaks.
