Question about 2002 Subaru Impreza
I have an '06 (NOT 2002) impreza sport wagon with 64K miles and auto trans, and have been noticing these noises, especially when the tranny is cold. when it warms up, they go away but i can hear them again with a strong takeoff until it gets into the upper gears. when cold and stopped at a traffic light, putting the car in neutral or park makes them go away. after warming up, it's fine if i drive with an extra light foot, for mileage.
this is the last year of my lease and need to find out if this car is a keeper. thanks in advance for any help!
Hi. I think you have a low tranny fluid level. If you never changed it, now would be great time to do so.

This sounds like one or more of your motor/powerplant mounts is broken. Here is an easy test:
Have someone sit in the driver's sear with engine running and trans. in Park.
You stand in front with the hood open. Have them shift from Park to Reverse, and then Drive and back to Reverse and Park, taking time to stay in each gear and give some throttle while holding the brake pedal tight. This will rock or move the engine a certain amount as they shift through the gears and apply power lightly. It will move alot more violently with broken mounts.
If you have a clunking noise on Reverse shifts, you should be able reproduce this with the hood up and pinpoint the noise and/or sight the faulty motor mount with a friend's help. Good luck, I hope this puts you on the right track to fixing this annoying noise.
Sincerely, Tater Todd
