i have an 02 wrx wagon with 90k and its 100% stock
about a week ago i started to get a loud squealing on startup, i know it has to do with the belts.
sometimes the squealing starts as soon as the car starts, however sometimes it doesn't start til i turn the weel.
sounds like power steering right?
the squealing also is directly correlated with the rpms, so as i rev it gets louder.
now on top of this i am getting this chirping sound while cruising around 2500 rpms and up, sounds like the belt is slipping. however when i hear the chirp my car bogs down right with it for a split seccond. wtf is this?
i also feel like my boost isnt smooth for lack of a better description. so when i accelerate and i know im on boost the power feels somewhat choppy. maybe this part is just in my head.
any ideas on the chirp and or belt issue? are they or are they not related?
