    Hey y'all Just letting y'all know that if you have a 3.0 VDC that you must use a new alternator for these engines. I went through 2 brand new, 1 Mitsubishi rebuilt and one from my 08 2.5.. they didn't work. That's 4. None worked. Installed a new one for the VDC and I've no issues in two weeks. I...

    My battery was continuously dying earlier this year, so I took it into a shot and they said the battery needed to be replaced. This was odd because the battery was just replaced by the previous owner this past summer. My car was running alright for a bit, but then whenever I was at a stoplight...

    My voltages are usually between 14.8 volts (cold) to about 14.2 volts (warm). My voltage today has dropped to 13.3 volts. I assume it is logical to surmise that my alternator is giving up the ghost. It only has 68,000 miles. That kinda sucks. The local dealership quoted almost 900 clams to...
  4. Gen 6: 2020-Future
    I have a 2022 Outback Limited XT with 1300 miles on the odometer with a whine that comes from the HK speakers at all volumes. It does in fact get louder with the volume, as well as the pitch changes with the current RPM, which leads me to believe its a grounding issue of some kind on either the...

    I have 1-yr old battery on my 2012 3.6R that kind of been sitting more than driven this past year. I probably only drive it on average once a week for 20-30 miles. Last Monday I drove the car for about 10 miles only and Saturday the batter died. I jump started and let it run for about 5-10...

    Hi all, when I turn on my headlights and I have the radio up I start to hear a whine coming from the speakers. It goes away if the headlights are off, recently my washer fluid button stopped working too. The wipers work but no fluid comes out from neither the front nor the back windshield. Also...

    Good Morning, Removed the alternator bolt to push the alternator down enough to get the belt over top of the pulley. Now I can't seem to get the bolt to thread through the second hole towards the engine. Any ideas? I'm going to try removing the entire alternator later today and repositioning it...
  9. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    I'm having some odd issues with a recently purchased 2007 subaru outback 2.5l with auto transmission where (with alternator plugged in and battery reading 14-14.5v) the engine idles a little rough at 700rpm, the brake and battery light are on, and it will nearly stall out when I hit the gas but...

    My car was jumped backwards several years ago and since then I have been going thru alternators and batteries like crazy. Last night my battery totally died and I went to Autozone and they put a new battery in it. The battery was tested and it was at 45%. Alternator could not be tested bc...

    Hey all audio nerds! My Scosche BT-FM transmitter unit emits a ringing noise/high hum that seems to be related to the RPM of the engine, the higher my RPM the higher the pitch of the hum and vice versa - lower RPM, lower hum. This doesn't happen if I plug it into the AUX port of the car, only if...

How do I figure out what it is. And btw I didn’t hook up the cables backwards someone else did that. Also the check engine...

    In the five years since I bought my 2003 outback from the dealer with 70k miles, I have had to replace the alternator 14 times along with 4 new batteries. The alternators have been purchased new under warranty from Autozone and Napa. The second most recent one failed after only 2 months. Most...
