80 degrees in Pittsburgh and I decided to take the Legacy out for a stroll. Of course something has to break on such a nice day.
I stopped at a red light and the power steering disappeared. Just tough to move the wheel. Lasted for about 10 seconds and then the engine stalled. I saw a small puff of smoke from the front of the hood. I restarted the car and everything seemed fine. Pulled over and inspected. I could not find any leaking fluids and no fluid levels were low.
An hour later, I was revving the engine in my driveway listening to a "tinny" metallic rumble at higher RPMs. Sounds like a lose heat shield. Then no power steering combined with engine stall 5 secs later. This time I heard some whining prior and a bit of whining after I restarted.
Any ideas what may be wrong? The engine stall piece is the part I really don't understand.
Thanks in advance!
