    97 subaru legacy wagon has loud clicking sound when turning, noise comes from both tires. On this model is it the stering knuckle or the c.v. joint?

    my mini is making a sqeeling noise on the front right hand side near the tyre when I turn the wheel

  • Anonymous Mar 23, 2014

    When I reverse out of the garage I can hear a thumping noise - think it occurs with the rotation of the wheels or the working of the petrol pump. Only happens in reverse. I have had it checked by Subaru dealer but they couldn't find anything. They told me the floor cover in the boot was not properly latched, which it was. Also if it was this then surely the noise would occur when driving forward as well. Not happy and worried.

I put the wrong octane in my '08 wrx sti

all impreza recommends high ROM.
although 99ron or 100ron is recommended, some uses unleaded for non-turbo and of course notice a sligth defference in performance using high ROM fuel.
in your case is the reverse, means does't need to drain for a change.

2006 Impreza sti- i get continuous knocking while in reverse

does it happen turning both directions? AND...does it happen turned the same angle in forward gears? Can you feel it in the pedals, floor, your seat or through the shifter? You may want to grab a helper and take them to a business/industrial area that has an empty parking lot and have them stand out side the vehilcle while duplicating the symptom. See if you can roughly locate where the sound is coming from. e.g. right front, left front. under center of vehicle. Your helper may need to walk or run near the vehicle while backing to be closer to the noise while it occurs.

I cant remove my key from the ignotion 04-05 wrx sti

You are going to have to have you ignition tumbler replaced. (Talk about insult to injury!) It sounds like Repo-man slammed in a new tumbler to snatch your rex and didn't quite get it in right.
Good luck!
