2010 Subaru Impreza QuestionsI 've been noticing on startup a whistleing noise coming from engine on start up (1 answer)
It is louder on startup until engine revs down, then is somewhat lower in pitch. It can be heard while driving, does not change with ac on / off, or heat. I do not see anything when I look at belts and have had both replaced about 2 months ago.

If I move steering wheel position and restart (can take ten tries), will eventually go into gear and drive fine. Have had 'brake start selenoid'(I believe that is what it is called-not mechanic) replaced twice in past for same issue, but without ABS and traction control light coming on....
2010 Subaru Impreza RecallsAir Injection Pump Overheats
The air injection pump may continually operate due to a faulty relay. This can cause it to overheat and possibly melt. Dealers will replace the secondary air injection pump relay free of charge to resolve the concern.

In certain states, where salt is used to de-ice the roads, corrosion can occur at the four-way joint connector of the hydraulic braking system leading to a brake fluid leak. This fluid loss can result in longer than expected stopping distance, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will apply an anti-corrosion wax to the four-way joint connector area to correct this concern. Some vehicles previously recalled of this concern may not have been repaired correctly. In addition, owners of vehicles outside of the affected states may request this recall be performed. Please contact your dealer to determine exactly how this recall affects your vehicle.
