Question about 2001 Subaru Forester
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
