    Unhappy Engine/transmission problem help!

    Help please! I have a 2012 wrx with 13k miles on it. I drove to a friend's house last night and immediately noticed a problem. There is a squeeking/squeeling noise coming from the engine bay anytime I accelerate hard. If im cruising in 4th gear around 40-45 mph and I accelerate it also makes that noise. I think this is a transmission problem, probably the clutch. Any suggestions?? The engine sounds completely normal when in neutral and I rev it up.

    i would suggest taking it to the dealership since (i assume) you still have your warranty. one of the hardest things to do is diagnose noises on the internet {trust me, i've tried! lol}

    I also have 2012 wrx with 14k miles all stock. So far the car is great and seems to pull a lot harder now in the mid range. I'm curious to know what causing this noise.

    Take it to the dealer and let them worry about it. That's why there's a warranty.
