My 2001 Subaru Outback sounds like a motorcycle all of a sudden on the highway.


Asked by May 05, 2015 at 05:54 PM about the 2001 Subaru Outback Base Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It randomly makes the noise when
accelerating and decelerating. It sounds
like it's coming from under the driver seat.
Not from the engine or the back.Is this an
exhuast leak?  Rough idea on price?

if there is anything hanging out from under the engine it is an o2 sesor that sounds like the issue an o2 sensor just fell out


Yes, my first answer is that you have an exhaust problem. Take the car to a muffler shop. They'll do a free inspection for you. Maybe it can be welded or you will need a new exhaust pipe.
