Valkyr13 Posted August 22, 2017 Share Posted August 22, 2017 Maybe someone here has heard this noise before. My shop suggested sending the oil out for analyzing, but the car would sit about a week until the results come back, instead I contacted Subaru for more info and they got me an appointment tomorrow morning. Any information is better than what I have now Ive spent some time searching the forum and youtube but I came up empty handed. A little history of the car, It is a 2006 Outback XT 5MT First owner was SOA corporate in Colorado for 1 year ending odometer 38,962miles Second owner was an individual in Pennsylvania for 9 years ending odometer 102,250 I took ownership a month and a half ago with no maintenance records. First thing I did was Timing belt water pump and power steering. A week or so later did both lower ball joints as the boots were torn. About a week later I really started to notice a clicking in the front right, turns out the front passenger axel had excessive play laterally and was clicking only when accelerating on a turn so it was replaced with a heavy duty replacement. Now this odd noise on startup... I took the time to record the noise anytime I would start the car, I tried to note if the car was reading warm or cold but it only happens on the first start up and for no more than 2 seconds as shown by the attached video link. Say I start the car and the noise happens, if I were to turn it off and back on again no noise would be present on startup. Hope this helps and yall can guide me through this. https://youtu.be/yiI00WmZwXQ Sincerely, Zack Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
