Question about 2006 Subaru Outback 2.5
When the engine is cold the flywheel screeches and when it warms up the noise decreases dramitically
The alternator flywheel? I believe, correct me if I'm wrong, that you are referring to the wheel on the alternator that the belt goes around. The screeching indicates a loose or possibly worn drive belt. As the belt slides instead of engaging, it screeches until the rubber gets hot enough to finally grip. Eventually, your battery will fail to charge. It could be a simple adjustment is needed via the alternator or a tensioner to tighten the belt. However, If there's any question about the age or condition of the belt, better to replace it before it breaks. This would be important so you can see how it wraps around the various components. The folks at an auto parts store should be able to assist you with this.

If the noise is coming from the area you say it could be loose torque converter bolts or a cracked flexplate. If you do not have one, a stethascope is available at the auto parts stores and that will help pinpoint the area where it is coming from.

SOURCE: Can a 2001 Subaru Outback take an aftermarket stock clutch or do you have to go with a Subaru clutch only? fighting clutch chatter two clutches in two months after orignal clutch lasted 130k miles?
Get a new clutch kit AND flywheel. Don't turn a flywheel more than once, just like with brake rotors. Any car can use an aftermarket clutch replacement (as long as they fit, of course). If you get a lightened flywheel, you'll enjoy better acceleration and mileage (city driving) as well.
