Not really sure what "tinking" is, but if it only makes the noise while moving, it's either brakes or CV joints.

2003 Subaru outback h6 3.0. Starts fine, when I shift into reverse or drive I get a loud grinding noise


Is your 2003 Subaru Outback automatic or manual transmission?
If it is automatic, then your transmission sounds like it's malfunctioning into the reverse gear as it is not aligning properly.
If it is manual, then your transmission sounds like it may have a bad clutch or bad reverse gear.
Either solution is not cheap. Good luck.

I have bad road noise after 40 mph. This started after changed tires and both front boots and axles


to possible answers
the axles are new and the cv joints mat be firm resulting in noise transmission through failing engine mounts ( unlikely but possible )
the tread pattern may be the cause of the noise especially if the tyre pressure is incorrect
Take it back to the shop and take them for a road test to see if they can find the reason
when drive axles have to replaced , it generally means that the front lower arms have to be disconnected so a wheel alignment may also be in order

My 97 Outback has a miss at idle, at upper RPMs it seems to fire on all cylinders. The CEL is flashing. Today when I was driving it lost power on acceleration, limping along. The car never died. Once I...


If the light is flashing it means the engine has a misfire that can damage your catalytic convertor which is very expensive. A tuneup might be in order if its never been done, but I have personally seen many bad timing belts and fuel pumps that have gone bad on those vehicles also.

I have a 97 Nissan Pathfinder 4 X 4. When turning


It may be the CV joint. Have it checked out or replaced. The ball joint may also cause noise when turning when it has gone bad. Depending on the sound intensity, that may be an issue. You may have it inspected as well.

1997 Subaru Outback with temperarure problems


check the coolant level - you may have low coolant, causing the sensor to occasionally read an air pocket. If you don't correct this you will burn out your motor.
We had this problem & eventually replaced both the thermostat and radiator cap, being careful to bleed out any air pockets by running the engine form cold with the heater on hot and the radiator cap off - keep watching & topping up the coolant as the enigine heats & the thermostat opens.
Good luck!
