Bobsousley Posted July 12, 2017 Share Posted July 12, 2017 Just bought a 2010 2.5, automatic tranny... picked it up cheap off a kid in town here as it is a salvage title. 116k miles. I know timing belt/water pump needs done, will take care of that with a friends help. collision was on driver front fender area. Car goes down the road straight, doesnt pull while driving, accelerating, or when braking. At idle everything sounds ok, but under some throttle it sounds like it may be missing just a bit, yet doesnt throw a light. Its also accompanied by a vibration as you give it gas. when in park, give it some gas and there's a distinct hum if you can call it that at about the 1000-1500 rpm range that gets higher/lower in pitch as the rpm's increase/decrease. Shift into gear and rpm's drop low, not quite to a stall before they recover back to normal. turn on a/c and once again they dip, not as bad when shifting into gear though. (just a thought...wondering if any of this can be attributed to a stretched timing belt?) I knew going into this purchase there was work to be done. having never had a subaru, just looking for some direction and ideas on where to start. when it's done, hoping for a few things...1) a car that'll get my daughter through highschool, maybe even college, 2) gain knowledge of this car to be able to work on it without going to the dealer or a shop every time, 3)and to not have a money pit. Always in the back of my mind to let the next guy enjoy a project, and buy something turnkey. Any poiters are well appreciated. Thanks Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
