Question about 2008 Subaru Forester

1999 Subaru Forster Noise

When I stop my 1999 Subaru Forster makes a sound. It is almost like cold metal popping. This is frequent but not every time. I get the same sound to a lesser extent every time I apply the break while turning (ex. In a parking lot). Then, I do not know if this is related or a different problem but when I drive over 60 mph my steering wheel vibrates more than normal.
What do you think could be causing these symptoms?
Thank you for your time,
Denise

My first reaction to what you describe is the front CV joints. If worn these will click quite loudly on a slow hard turn such as in a parking lot. The steering vibration is probably wheel balance and although not related, one can make the other worse. First off ckeck your front wheels for bends or curb damage. Check the tyres for uneven wear, bulges, or blisters on the side walls and beneath the tread. Check your front brake rotors for scoring and grooving. And check around the front axles inside the front wheels for thrown grease. Check the boots on the CV joints for splits or other damage and deterioration. If you find all or any of these things, have your mechanic give you a price to replace the faulty components. We usually use rebuilt CV joint assemblies, on an exchange basis.

Possible water pump bearing. Maybe anything. If you push on the clutch and it is still there, when in gear, it is nothing to do with the gearbox or transmission.

heavier oil if you are not in a cold climate. but before you do that have the oil pressure checked. We used to use a can of STP every once in a while on a motor in a dodge we had... nothing wrong with it... was just noisy.
