Manual or auto trans? If manual, check fluid level. Grinding noise could be u-joint starting to fail, or even wheel bearing.

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.

Sounds like the differential to me, when the power drops you are probably crunching a broken piece thru the ring and pinion gears. This can be very dangerous, could lock the back wheels up while you are driving down the road and get you or someone else killed.

SOURCE: 2000 subaru forester ignition coil wiring

Are there any other possible problems, or you are just not receiving spark at all now?

The coilpack could be dead and just need replaced. If you have a voltmeter or a test light, check the wiring on both sides of the coilpack harness to make sure it is receiving power.
I don't believe Subaru used ignitors past '99, but if they did, your should be located on the firewall behind the throttle body. Make sure it's plugged in and receiving power.

Coil packs do go bad from time to time. I had to replace mine in my
'98 Impreza a while back.

Goodluck!

No there has not been complaint's like with the Toyota's. Toyota is involved with Subaru on a few thing's , But toyota uses Subaru technology not the other way around. And the accelerator style levers are different from Subaru's. Sorry to hear about your accident. Have a great day.

2004 forester (man. trans) when accelerating in 1st/2nd, 3rd at low rpm's get a grinding sound momentarly from engine/transmission..sound lasts several seconds, then goes away.


You have a Boxer engine so its not the engine..
Its in the box and it is either the Layshaft bearings .or the input shaft into the clutch which would be the clutch thrust bearing or the bush in the crankshaft,,all these will give you the same noise but if it get worse then we will have to have another talk and fix it ..
Let me know how you get on Ron

Different oil brand/blend/formula? Thats a good one. As long as the oil was 5W30 it's not causing your problem. I would find a independent service center that specializes in Subaru's.
