Subaru Legacy/Outback Unusual Clunks and Noises
Have a quick question about a 95' Legacy L wagon with FWD. I bought the car in 2004 with 154,00 miles on it. It's been a good car so far. My only problem has been this strange continuing noise up front on the driver side. I was told it was the front driver side axle. So I had it replaced in 2004. then again 2005. I am starting to think it is something else. I don't travel up hills much, as I know this is hard on those front axles. The noise develops arond 35 Mph very softly, kinda sounds like a blrrrrrr, then changes in sound with engine rpm's. It can only be heard on the driver side. The sound will return around 50mph when the rpm's drop, this is when it becomes quite loud with a blrr poppy sound kind a. At 70mph it really sings. once over 80mph it goes away. the sound is only heard mainly at o to 35 mph then slowly you hear it again at higher speeds. when you let of the pedal it makes a reveresed blrrrrr sound. I recently had it in the shop for a check and no one found anything wrong, even during test drives the mechanic never hears it. only one time did they hear it when I pointed it out. the axle was replaced, but the sound came back almost right away coming of the lot. any ideas ?
