CHIRPING

2001 Subaru Legacy • 4 cylinder AWD Manual • 120,000 miles

My 2001 Subaru Legacy is making a chirping noise when operating in gears 2-4 at revs higher than 2.9k. It sounds like it is coming from underneath the car. The frequency of the chirping is proportional to rev speed.

Since noise is proportional to engine speed, it could be emitted by the drive belts or related components. Get them checked.
