Hey everyone! New to the site, but have used it plenty to help diagnose problem after problem, but still have questions.
Bought an 03 WRX in 2008, and it seems like everything keeps breaking! Car has approx. 125k miles and is manual. I know for a fact it is not completely stock, but don't know everything that has been changed.
Service history so far....
New Alternator Dec 08 (crapped out 2000 miles after purchase)
New Radiator Feb 10
New Spark Plugs this month
New Tires last month
Questions I have:
Where exactly is the Air Fuel Sensor for CEL P0031? I've found 3 different answers.
Does the WRX tend to bounce a lot while driving? Whenever I hit a bump the back end bounces for a good while and the car seems rough when hitting any bump. ( I know springs are aftermarket, not sure about struts)
I'm assuming the loud noise coming from under the car by the exhaust pipe is a cracked pipe. True?
Car has a ton of vibration when I shift into 5th gear above 55 mph, not so much if I shift at 45 mph. But can become noticeable when I reach 70+ mph. Could this be a tranny issue?
There is a severe pulsation when I brake under 40 mph. Assuming I need new brakes. Do I need to change rotors as well?
When the AC is on, hear a quick belt sqeak when I let off the gas. Is this common since there isn't tortion on the belt at that time?
I'm sure I'm missing something, but answers to these questions would be greatly appreciated. I can provide pics if needed as well. Thanks in advance!
