I have been noticing lately that my WRX drive line is noisy. When I let off the accelerator I hear some whining. I have read that this is normal in these cars but I have never really noticed it before. Also when i'm shifting I can hear a noise that seems like the clutch engaging/disengaging. It's a slight clunk but I don't hear it if I let the clutch out slow enough. Also I never hear it starting from a stop. It's just from 1-2-3 and sometimes 4. (It's not the rear differential.)
I have a noise that's a little clunk or tap sound when I let out the clutch. It sounds like the clutch engaging if that makes sense. If I have my car in neutral and slowly let out the clutch I can't hear it. It only happens when you let the clutch out modestly fast. If the car is not running it does not make the sound. It only happens when the engine is running? It sound like its coming from the transmission area. It's not the rear end clunking because it happens when the car is just sitting stationary.
