Question about Subaru Cars & Trucks
Sounds like your talking about ripped CV axle boot that has spun all of its grease out onto the engine and firewall. The fast tap is most likely from the lack of grease in the axle causing it to wear out and wobble inside the joint at times. You would normally hear this noise more while turning. If your take it to someone who knows Subarus, they can change out the axle in about 15 minutes or less. The axle can run about $50 aftermarket but will cost more if you get it from Subaru. I hope this info helps.

yes it is safe to take it off. just put some sealant on it or replace the gasket and put it back . this happened to me on 1999 clk 430 . take the belt off to make it easy on your self

I had the same problem a month ago. I thought it was the thermostat, which sits inside the lower water feed tube that runs from the radiator, under the car and up between the engine and trans axle to the thermostat housing and water-inlet housing attached to the water pump. I replaced it and it kept leaking. So I got under the car with a mirror and a light and found that it was leaking from a weep hole in the water pump. This happens when the water pump seal is bad. to replace the water pump you nearly have to take apart the back of the engine and the timing chain cover. The waterpump is mounted at the bottom of the back of the engine and is turned by the timimng chain. It took me two days to fix, and it was not easy. There are a couple of sites that have info, which helped me. It's about a $600 - $900 job if you take it to a repair shop.

hi, this consumption seems high, i would take it to a dealer and ask them to check the oil sensor.......
P.S. is there a lot of smoke coming from the exhaust, if so, it may be burning a little oil, ask dealer to check it
