Default Back fire noise

I own a 01 2.5rs and the car already makes more noise than I car for... It makes a noise once in a while that sonds like the car is back firing or something along those linesand it also makes a cluncking noise when you back up and applie the brakes it also only does it once in a while... But something it does all the time is and highway speeds I have a vibraton that comes and goes in a regular pattern. I can't tell if it needs the wheels to be rebalanced because it started all of the sudden... Can you help...Don't feel like taking to dealership because after thursday it will be my only car and I need a car.... Or should I say wife needs car....I just get to abuse it as she puts it...

It is 'normal' for the steering wheel to vibrate.

If you hold down the clutch for about 2-3seconds b4 you put it into gear the gear change wont be so violent.

WTF? YES! I am
better than you!


Aso for the back firing......MY01 Subies run rich, so get used to it. There are ways to lean it out but it will cost ya a bit. I got used to it and now I love that boxer's lil' sounds. As for the clunk....I had that too for a while when my car was new but it went away. If your whells were out of balance enough for you to feel it, it would be a constant thing. I really can't say anything about that.
