Have Subaru Questions? Ask a Subaru Mechanic and Get Answers ASAP
Hi Im David, thanks for visiting the site. whats the noise sound like? knocking? tapping? pinging? rattling? squealing? whining? that is too vague a question to be answered ...........??
is the car running ok? not overheating? no check engine light?
Im thinking its a heat shield that came loose, from the catalytic converter area, or the heat shield around the starter. the odor might be a bit of oil dripping on the exhaust. very difficult to diagnose without being there to hear,smell, see, feel.........
ok. sounds good.
checking in to see how its going
