1996 Subaru Impreza 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 216K miles
My daughters' subaru has just started making what can only be described as a knocking noise that seems to be coming from under her steering column. It doesn't do it all of the time, and when it does, it starts as soon as she turns on her ignition. Sometimes it goes away on its own and other times it continues until she turns her ignition off when she arrives at her destination. I had the opportunity to listen to it this evening, when she put her cell phone up under her steering column. It sounds like a knocking or thumping noise, and it is steady and rythmic, as if something were turning and hitting against the inside of the steering column. I have not had the opportunity to actually get under the dash to see if I can find the cause, but I did hear it. Any ideas?
