Please bare with me I'm a female with limited mechanical knowlege...I just bought this Legacy and there is a high pitch winding noise that won't go away, my first thought is trans but it was shifting fine, it only makes this noise during acceleration, going downhill or coasting it stops. He said someone told him that this was a subaru noise, I didn't buy it but its my first time owning a legacy GT to. Previously I had WRX and 2.5 rs's. So anyway 3 weeks later I started noticing from stopped position that it was jumping. I checked fluid, car running cold and is full, doesn't smell burnt, bright red and guy I purchased from said he had it flushed approx 13,000 miles ago. The car just rolled 116k miles. The power steering pump appeared to be leaking so it was replaced.
Any thoughts anyone?
Thanks for listening...
