whats wrong with my 1999 Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT
When i come to a stop with my foot on brake the car is vibrating a lot. Then I
see smoke coming from front of car and u can smell oil burning/ is my
transmission going out.
woowee, there are a lot of things what could be wrong~ an automatic? or manual transmission, in any case the oil smell would probably be from the engine~ four sets of constant velocity joints are on your vehicle...chances are that at least one of them is causing the vibration....check them for torn boots~
its a automatic. Does a torn boot make a clicking noise when u turn
yes they will continue to get worse as time goes on~ check the oil level to find the extent of the leak...try to spot the bad gasket or perhaps the PVC elbow has fallen off...and the transmission level. parked, running with the handbrake set...if it's low...top it the line and try to find out where it's leaking...mostly is the rubber connectors to the radiator...you could check that~
drive axles really ain't so much money~ https://www.google.com/? gws_rd=ssl#q=1999+Subaru+Legacy+2.5+GT+drive+axles&tbm=sh op
actually 8 sets...inner and outer...thats the subie fer ya~ plenty of movin' parts....tho the 4wd gets through the snow better then most cars~
I just went and bought this car . The guy I bought the car from said he just put a new radiator in it . I was looking under and around the car . Seen a lot of bolts that were not there. So now u give me something else to check . Cause to tell u the truth . The c.v boots looked fine .. Thanks .
glad to hear that..I've always loved these...but remember the BRAT~ which I took rides in back in the day~ ...okay...the click- clack sound is tell-tale...regardless if the boots are torn or not~ scary that the bolts were not there...perhaps there is an isometric drawing of all the parts and pieces for auto parts stores that may show you which bolts go where...that is frightening, cause at high-speed don't want driveshafts floppin' around on the freeway~
here they all are....https://www.google.com/search? q=1999+Subaru+Legacy+exploded+assembly+view&biw=1360&bih =649&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwj4muSp7 IzMAhUFHh4KHSivAx4QsAQIGw

Well thanks a lot . I really appreciated it . On both the things I asked you .You made my day . Cause I was thinking the worse . Again thanks a lot .
the keg of beer with an announcement horn is priceless~
