08 WRX Loud Humming, gets louder turning right
Just bought an '08 WRX hatchback. 32,000 miles. 5 spd, new tires.
Ok, the car at highway speed starts to develope a humming sound thats almost like hitting rumble strips before a toll booth. Its a pulsing, not a constant noise. A slow pulse though. (side note I was not on a rumble strip).
The noise gets louder and harder when turning right. If I make a hard right it sounds really rough. It doesn't matter what road or street. It does it in every gear, in neutral and with or without the clutch in. I didn't notice if it does it while hitting the brakes, but the rotors look ok so i doubt that's it.
I thought maybe a wheel bearing. I jacked the car up and tried to move the wheels, they seemed tight. I will have to try with a pry bar or something when I get more time. I did notice though, that when I turn the front wheel back and forth (with little pressure) the engine, trans and exhaust shake pretty violently. I haven't noticed any issues with shifting, but that can't be a good sign.
Any thoughts or suggestions would be freakin great. Its due in tuesday to get checked out, but I want to know what they are working on before they see it. I took it back to the dealership and the salesman looked at it and told me its the exhaust. He also then said the synchro whining in first and second was the turbo...
