    Off Gas 2nd Gear "Dragging" Sound

    Hi guys-

    Just curious, 2011 wrx, 11k miles on her. I get on the gas pretty good in 2nd then get completely off of it. Maybe around 2.5k i start to hear a 'dragging' kind of sound. Not really a grinding sound. I figure I may just be paranoid/protective. As I slow down (still in gear) it gets a little worse. Feel no resistance. But using that warranty, bringing her in this weekend. Any thoughts?

    \P

    Where is this noise coming from? Could it just be tranny whine which would be completely normal. Does this happen in any other gear?

    I have a similar whine, but didn't notice it until I replaced my shifter bushings with urethanes. I suspected it was normal...

    Could be - to tell you the truth haven't really investigated, usually have music loud enough so I can't hear it. Weird thing is, today it was raining and I tried to listen for it, couldn't hear it.

    But I do know for sure it's from the engine bay and doesn't do it in other gears.
