Re: Clutch out TWANG noise on new subie

Whatever it is... seems to always be there, but getting quieter.

Shop says its "nothing" and couldn't ever reproduce it.

Now I have documentation of that anyway... so if anything happens, I got my backside covered.

Re: Clutch out TWANG noise on new subie

That could work.... just last night I managed to have the sound come from the front. And today it seemed more centered, or right under me. Where the mechanical cause is and where the sound reverberates to (and is heard) may be different. Shop said if they couldn't duplicate it, they would call me an...

Re: Clutch out TWANG noise on new subie

Thanks for the suggestion.
I have searched through countless forums, only to find nothing so far.

I guess I will have to put faith in the shop. :?: :? :!:

Re: Clutch out TWANG noise on new subie

hmmmm :? .... I guess no one else has either had this issue, or knows what to do about it?
Doesn't look good.
It is in for a under-warranty inspection for this right now.
We will see what the shop says.

Clutch out TWANG noise on new subie

Here is the senerio: (2009 impreza... regular nat. asp. 2.5i) 1. back out slowly from parking spot... 2. put in first and ease forward... 3. once clutch is fully engaged, "Twang" noise. The noise is louder if you are moving faster when the clutch is finally all the way out. The noise is coming from ...

Re: DBW and upshifting issue

First oil change at 7500.... then all other ~3500.
I figured I would just do the 3000 like I always have with every other car.
More often doesn't hurt the car, only the wallet and environment. :)

Re: DBW and upshifting issue

Couldn't rev hang, lag, DBW, etc... actually help during power shifting by keeping the RPM's up and consistent?

Re: DBW and upshifting issue

Good deal... thanks all. I will drive it like the manual says too.... and about the first oil changes?? Don't know. But my father used to build cars, and I will see him in a few days. Car will have ~350mi on it then. We'll see. Manual says nothing about first oil changes, or special oil, or anything...

Re: DBW and upshifting issue

Funny... but not the song I would have pictured!
Then again, how do you picture sound? Unless you use drugs... or are in wonderland with Alice... yet again, that is basically the same thing.
Anyway, not the driving music of choice. But appreciated none-the-less.

Re: DBW and upshifting issue

I just edited my above message on break-in and stuff..... see there for what would have been. :) I guess I have the best of both worlds. Gentle break-in like the designers say... with an occasional fun burst (until I feel guilty, which is right away). The break in on the Subaru is only listed as 1k ...

Re: DBW and upshifting issue

I did a shift at ~5K once.... and then remembered that there is a break in procedure. ((I knew to at least stay away from red-line when its new... but I could see going over it IF shifting at 6k for max power)) Looked it up when I came to a stop... no reading manuals while driving manuals. :lol: So,...

Re: DBW and upshifting issue

Thanks... I guess I will just have to practice. At the moment, I don't think I dump the clutch fast enough when up-shifting. I didn't dump fast in trying to keep it smoother.... don't worry, I don't do it like I am doing a launch. However, its been years since I drove a manual.... therefore I have b...

DBW and upshifting issue

Just bought a new '09 Subaru Impreza (NON-turbo model). Never driven a DBW throttle before and I have noticed the following issue. When I up-shift, and get off the throttle there is a lag (seems to be known with the DBW systems) and then when I push the clutch in, the revs go up at first instead of ...
