Newbie with driveshaft noise !

Hi All just joined the forum after purchasing my first scooby.

I have a 2.0 WRX 2001. As it is my first one I have nothing to compare against, so a little advice would be much apprecited.

There seems to be a lot of noise coming through where the gear stick is located. When accelerating there is a whining noise. I am not sure whether this is characteristic or there is some sort of problem. I figure there will be more noise with a drive shaft running down the centre of the car. The clutch seems fine and is not slipping, all gears seem to locate properly although reverse sometimes needs a bit of encouraging.

Any advice would be grateful.

Overall the car is great and the power is awesome.

Cheers Mark

What way is the gearbox oil in gearbox might be somthing to look at first they a dipstick underneath your intercooler drivers side check the level. Is the car vibrating at all when accelerating and slowing down? as this can show up wear n tear on inner cv joints on driveshafts any knocks at all? and dont worry about reverse any impreza I was in and my own have these problems Hondas are worse my last 4 Hondas were v bad to imprezas reverse
