Turning wheels tight and noisy

suddenly, of the gauges went crazy; for several minutes, then a loud thump and glided to a halt. never had any prior experience with this behavior.

How do I find out if Subaru is still honoring the recall repairs??
If not how much will the fuel leak cost to repair??

I just installed led tail lights and turn signals and need to install a new flasher. I think it is near the fuse box but cannot recognize or find it. Can anybody help me?

The shop has had my vehicle for a month, is this repair that difficult and how much should it cost? The check engine light had been on when I had it checked. The car doesn't even have 90,000 miles on it! This is going to be expensive? I expected more from a Subaru! Extremely disappointing!!! I did not take to a dealer, it would cost me twice as much to have fixed.

Bought wiring harness that attaches to the plug under the right rear fender, Baja's lites all work but trailer lites don't. Tried 2 harnesses. is there a seperat fuse that can fix this problem?

I have 178,000 on my 2006. I saw they extended the warranty to 100,000 or 8 years. Is it whichever comes first? My head gasket is going out.

My cruise control light is flashing and cruise will not work. Check engine light also came on at the same time.

some days i can go 50 mile and it get hot and then the next day i can go 3 miles and it gets hot. and sometime i can go weeks and it don't get hot

Brought my car in to the dealer for timing belt replacement and some other work. Was told I had a power steering rack leak - estimated cost of repair $1298.00. Was told didn't need to do it at that time. Would like to know how I can tell I have a problem (I don't notice difference in steering), when I need to fix, and a reasonable cost. Seems all Subaru repairs are a little pricy regardless of at dealer or not.

my first thought was a broken belt of some sort as they have been squealing lately

do you know why a stick shift car would have a park /netral switch and can i bypass it {seemingly does nothing except set a code o0n the computer}

I have a water leak on the drivers side floor.After rain or a car wash,water shows up.Someone told me to check the FIREWALL!!
THANKS.

Reading the best thing to do is pull the motor, cut the head off the bolts. Then remove the head, weld nuts on. Use heat and penetrating oil. Years ago used to do some VW motors. They had a similiar problem, they sold Elephant studs. Does Subaru do something similar? What does one do if you have to strip the block to get them out? Seems all of my head bolts are this way.

I just had both replaced 14,000 miles ago, now the water pump is leaking. Also leaking out of 1 head. Never overheated. Should I use all Subaru parts to replace water pump and head gaskets, etc.?What about new head bolts?

SUBARU BAJA 05 TURBO.The clutch feels hard to press to the point of hurting my foot after driving long periods of time.

The carpet is wet in the front and back seat of the driver's side.

missing on calender 1 and tack off is vary slow

it misses all the time and it has a ruff idl.

Automatic trans - no aftermarket parts no turbo - During normal and/or hard acceleration @ around 2500rpm and not during a transmission shift change a noise that sounds life 2 short bursts of air pfft pfft happen and cannot duplicate when in park or neutral.

no trouble codes @ shop

when does the t/belt need to be changed or checked ?

My check engine light went on and I took it to subaru to see what it was. They said O2 sensor. I fixed it and a week later check engine light back on. Brought it back and I was told it needed a tuneup, now tuneup didn't fix it. Car idles rough, hesitates, and check engine light is blinking. Any ideas?

I recently had a clicking noise when I turned the steering wheel. I replaced the front axle and thought that would take care of the noise. However it did not and it sounds as though it is actually coming from the back. it doesn't matter which way I turn the wheel. It is more persistent when I have driven it for a while. Any ideas

I was charged $389.00 for a set of "head bolts".
Is this right!?
I just inspected the repair and see no new bolts anywhere.
Had it done at Midas and was charged $3,086.00
Please advise.

Comments show that this head gasket problem is a known and recognized problem on 2004 Bajas. As such, system indicates warranty extension on "some models" with fewer than 100,000 miles and under 8 years old. How do I find out if my vehicle is covered and if the extended warranty is offered to owners other than original owners?

Does 2004 baja turbo have a tinimg belt or is a chain

During the shifting from 2nd to 3rd gear a quick noise (sounds like fanning a deck of cards). Only happens between those two gears, when car is automatic D mode, fairly consistently. Does not happen during manual shifting.

my subaru is making a 'whinning' noise coming from left rear when at speeds around 60mph, when you let off gas, it makes the most whine noise, like something needs to be oiled? makes noise more when weather is hotter?
please help, thank you, barb ley
