Rattling noise sportage 2008


Sorry for the late reply but, no, it is not related to a loose heat shield. It is a louder rattling sound more like a loose bearing vibrating inside either the transmission or the clutch assembly. Only between 1600 and 1900 rpm. and it is not present under ou over these rpm. The rattle desappear when I lock the 4X4. Dealer is out of solution!!

Power (acceleration) loss at mid-high RPM only


Loss of acceleration, the backpressure noise and such are kinda tell tale signs of that converter having problems, feel the exhaust out of the tailpipe it will be warm normally have someone step on the gas and if its super hot it'd be a step in the right direction.

Slow acceleration, high rpm


This sounds normal to me! The engine will read that rpm when accerlerating lightly. It is the stall of the torque convertor. The oil pressure will always be higher when the rpm's are higher, or when the oil is thicker - cold.

Virbration? That is a different story. Oil won't cause that.

'99 Forester with a knocking noise at idle and acceleration


sounds like you have a headgasket blown, a head, or your rocker arms or lifters whatever you prefer to call them are running dry. might be time for oil change and coolant flush. If ther is no overheating or coolant smell than get your injectors checked. You might just have a broken seal that emits louder sound from the pulsating injectors. Good Luck!
