    Possible Problem 05 WRX

    this happens every once in a blue, but when i start the car after being off for about an hour or more, and rev it (not hard), i hear the sound you hear when a car needs power steering fluid/belt. its not as loud, but its definitely noticeable over my exhaust... after it warms up, or i take off, it doesnt do it anymore... any ideas as to what it could be? could this lead to something severe?

    any info is appreciated....

    Accessory belts? Inspect them and replace as necessary.

    Incidentally, I've recently become acutely aware of the noise that my cooling fans make as they kick on when the car is hot and I slow down. Could this also be the source of your noise?

    I'm thinking no cause it only happens I "cold start" and rev. Other than that, I don't hear anything. It does sound like a belt. But not positive.

    sounds like a belt or p\s pump to me. change both belts and see how it goes. make sure they are nice and tight
