Question about 2002 Subaru Forester
When i step on the gas pedal the engine sound gets louder and becomes a high pitched scream. when i take my foot off the gas pedal it still whines. the sound begins as soon as i start driving and sometimes not until after driving a few minutes.
Have you crawled under the vehicle and personally inspected your exhaust line from manifold to tail pipe? The roaring sound usually occur when there is a hole in the exhaust line. I had it happen to my forester before. A hole half the size of a dime made my subaru sound like my old 74 chevy pickup.

I listened to a few parts of my 03 forester engine with a stethoscope. I had the same high pitched whine that gets louder when I accelerate. I've even had friends that ask if I have a turbo haha. Anyway, I thought it was a pulley, but it appears to be the power steering pump that makes the noise. It wasn't suggested to me that a new pump was needed, but I might replace it one day to get rid of the noise.
