2005 Subaru impreza shudders

When I cut the wheel all the way to the right or left and try to accelerate.
i.e. u turns or backing out of my drive way. I notice it less when it's really cold outside.
I thought it might be a strut

The Impreza is 4 wheel drive, i assume that you have the ability to out the car into 2wd? Usually these cars that dont have a true 4wd system the gearing in the rear wheels doesnt allow you to do U-turns or any tight turn. What happens is the inner wheel shudders as it is spinning just as fast as the outside wheel. I had a 98 subaru and the owners manual was specific in saying dotn do U-turns etc.
Good luck!

Is your steering wheel locked maybe? Try moving the steering wheel from side to side (there should only be a couple of millimeters of play) while trying to turn the key.

Where are the fuse boxes located in a 1999 subaru impreza?


The fuse is down on the right side of the steering wheel. It is below the plastic dash. Its a small box hidden away to the right. Small plastic square lid. Easiest to find if u scoot the seat right back and have a good look above the accelerator to the right!

97 Subaru Impreza shudders


I must say I enjoyed reading your post, you sound very nice. The problem sounds like possibly the C-V joints may need attention. They will cause a vibration and a grinding noise very noticeable at slow speeds. I hope this helps with your situation and hope you have a wonderful day.

After high speed driving, slow speed shudder


when it starts to shutter get the car up on a lift and spin the wheels and look and see if there is a wheel bubble.
if the brakes were done recently a binding brake pad can cause some of that.
hope this helps

Turbo 2ooo i think it might be some sort off bushes


juddering is UK english for shuddering in US english. The center bearing shouldn't move, i/e/ the shaft should rotate w/o side play in the bearing, but the rubber mounts for the bearing should be flexible. The needle bearings in the universal joints in the front to rear drive shaft can go bad, causing noise when accelerating and they're not changeable w/o special tools. Your problem also sounds like differential, which would mean that you need to change the gear oil in the rear differential. As the oil ages it stops working properly in the limited slip differential even if visually OK. Do the front differential at the same time, engine heat ages it even faster. The center diff is in the AT, so you would change the AT filter and fluid.
How to tell which problem you have... in a parking lot with dry pavement, stop the vehicle, turn the wheel hard right, accelerate a moment, and repeat hard left and centered. If its worse turning, than straight suspect the differential fluids first. If its the same turning or not and especially if its the same on wet or dry pavement and at slow and high speed then look into the propeller shaft first.
