I have had the car for 5 months and had the valve gaskets replaced and the car tuned up. Even before the repairs, i have heard a small rattle on the right side of the engine, sounds like close to the glove compartment. I dont hear it when im outside of the vehicle, only hear it when im inside.
The sound is not always there: it goes away when the car has been completely warmed up and driven for 30+ minutes.
When i do here it is driving around town and the rattle gets more rapid and faster as you speed up, and if i take my foot off accelerator the rattle slows down. It sounds as if there are small pebbles being rattled in a small area in the engine.
When engine is at idle its costant and steady rattle...when in Park it goes away.
Any idea what this could be?
I have been reading a lot about heat sheild rattling...but not sure if its that.

When i put the key in the egnition to start my car it will turn the power on, but will not continue over to start. Like i said the key is all the way where it should be to have started the car it just will not turn over. I still have power in the car and everythng works. I can jump it to start it that way and the check engine light and the cruise control is blinking.

Hello I,ve spent over $1000 now and still the same,I,ve had air flow meter replaced good spark plugs,and lots of labour trying to find fix,right then 50/50 of time it goes limp when taking off and over taking on high way,taking off put foot down and it just crawls til it finly kicks in but not at full boost,but some times it goes ok,it feels like it chocking or flooding,will it be o2 sensors or cat,or something to do with fuel inject,also it's just started to shake badly when breaking when going anything ova 100 k ,thanx for reading and please help me
The new pump sounds like it is working, but still no fuel in the lines. Could this be a fuel relay problem?
Noticed this happening when A/C on and traveling fast enough to be locked up. Tach was fluctuating and could feel it locking and unlocking. Seems to do it right when maintaining speed. Now it does it without A/C on. Noticed that I can get it to lockup by reducing throttle position and load, but as soon as I increase TP, it unlocks. Too much of this gives light and code p0740. Did not notice the lockup problem until started using the A/C this summer.
Tranny also will not shift into 4th gear in Winter until I am 5 miles up the road. Used magnetic heater on pan and decreased to 2-3 miles. I did get a "fluid temp..." something code at one point during the winter.
Tranny also fits one of the brake band adjustment symptoms in the FSM. Shifting from 2-3, it "boggs down" like it's going into 4th, then "lets go" and revs through 3rd and shifts into 4th normally. I can avoid this if I let off the throttle at the right time for the correct duration, but it's tricky. FSM said to back off on brake band adjustment. I have not had any work done to the transmission. Bought used with 77000miles and now has 95000. Trying to figure out if it's feedback from sensors or actual problem with TC, solenoid, fluid pressure, or PCM.
Sometimes my vehicle 2007 Subaru will not start (2X daily). I have only been successfully starting the vehicle after I tap on the starter motor with a hammer or large wrench. What is wrong with the vehicle? Thanks. DIY TommyT
I accidentally grabbed the collar whole shifting into 6th gear on the highway. Lots of grinding, now no reverse. Seems like it shifts in but as soon as I let off the clutch more grinding and it pops out of gear. Thanks for any help
Have had car for about 10 months front driver side tires wears tread on outer edge real bad. But all the sudden out of no where car started to have a wobble and or shaking only when I accelerate. And up hills the more throttle I give it the worse it gets. Same when rpm gets high but will stop instantly if you let off gas and coast or put it in neutral. I have to get up to speed as slow as possible to try and avoid it from shaking/wobbling What will it most likely be?
Cv axle?, wheel bearing?, differential?,
i brought my car in today to have them determine why i am getting a check engine light and they told me it was due to low compression on the cylinder and i would have to get my engine replaced. is that accurate?
Burps farts sometimes dies at 55+ on hyway restarts in N. ATtrans.whats up?
The dash lights come on, the key turns in the ignition, but the engine doesn't even attempt to turn over. There will be a buzzing sound, or sometimes a quiet clicking, but nothing else. After many tries, or just walking away and trying later, the car will simply start as it should. I've replaced the battery several times, but don't think that's the issue. Shops say they can't replicate the problem, so can't solve it. I think it's electrical. I've been told it is not my starter or alternator. PLEASE help. I've been stranded several times.
while driving my car the elect. system completely shut off no door locks,lights or hazard lights ignition switch wouldn't unlock to remove the key and trans. selector wouldn't shit into neutral to push out of traffic then 5-10 mins. later the key turned elect.returned and the car started and worked fine . the pos. bat. terminal was completely covered in corrosion so I replaced the term. also during the day the outside temp. was over 100 degrees.
what would cause this all to happen
