Depending on the noise,could be several things,if it isnt a specfic clunk,grind or squeal,and it just has that loud kind of humm to it ,its probably getting worn out ,2001,if 150,000 or more is the mileage,when accelerating the gear friction is greatest,and over time they wear and dont mesh as smoothly as they used to,causing greater drag and friction,and they get louder,hopefully thats not the case,faulty wheel bearings,drive axles,and brakes,can put excessive strain on transmissions,long before they fail, observe drive axles for torn cv boots,and inspect wheelbearings and brakes try taking off from a dead stop in 3rd gear,this will test the limits of the cluch and pressure plate,excessive slipping and maybe that noise you hear,would mean ,time for new cluch,pressure plate and throwout bearing,if your able to drive off starting in 3rd gear,without to much trouble .the clutch is ok(slight slippage is acceptable)reccomend fluid change if over 100,000 miles.hope this helps aloha from maui todd0708

Clutch assembly behind manual transmission is making noises when you turn.

Hi there if it is a clicking noise chances are its the CV joints on the ends of the drive shafts.

No, and add some Trans X slip stop and leak stop, sold by K and W. about 16 ounces, this really helped my Forester, as a lot of them have this issue with the clutch pack in the tranny. sold at most auto parts stores and Wal Mart. take care.

1999 Subaru Forester has developed a shake when accelerating, esp. between 20-30 mph. Wheel bearings replaced - didn't help. Tires checked, balanced, etc. - didn't help. Front end allignment - didn't help....

Auto or 5-speed?
Subarus have CV axles in front and back. And a drive shaft from the center differential of the transmission to the back differential.

Yes, it could be the drive shaft or axle. If you turn the car hard left or right do you hear any noises - usually a 'clicking' sound? This is likely a CV axle in front.

Check the fluid in the transmission (Automatic) (info is in the Owner's Manual) to make sure it's full and/or gear oil in the front differential.

If it's an Automatic transmission, the fluid may need changed - NOT FLUSHED - if it has more than 30K miles since last changed.
