Hey Guys,

My wifes 2008 outback 2.5i is making some strange sounds lately, and I was hoping you may be able to help me sort things out.

The sound is basically similar to a rattle or grind coming from the drivetrain. I hear the sound when I am accellerating and going through the gears... As I let off the gas and press in the clutch to upshift it sounds like a faint grind in the gears, which first appears as I press the clutch. I aslo hear the sound when I get off the gas and coast in the higher rpms (~2500-3500). I think it may be coming from the tranny as it sounds like it is coming from under the car and not forward in the engine compartement.

Any thoughts?

I'm starting to wonder if it may be an early sign of TOB fault??? The car only has 58K, so I would imagine the TOB has some life left in it...

Once this rain passes I'll poke around and try to narrow down the location of the noise...

Thoughts?
