I don't drive the car much because my wife uses it all the time. It's a Subaru 'Transporter.' I gather it is just about the same as a Sambar. Yesterday my wife said three things about the car. She said the battery seemed weak. - So I changed it for a better one today. And she said there was a one-time clunk coming from the back where the engine is. I don't know what to do about that, but it is true I changed the timing belt a couple of weeks ago and since it was my first, I might possibly have overlooked something. Anyway, the car runs just fine and I have no idea what that could have been. The other thing was the steering. She said it was difficult to explain, but it seemed - well - sorta - um! - well y'know..." I couldn't understand what she was going on about so I drove it round the block and reported it steered just fine. - Then she rocked the steering wheel with the engine off and sure enough it has a bit of 'play' in it. As I said, I didn't notice it. But she knows her car and she says it's not the same as it always has been. * So I tried to find some info on the steering system and my efforts were in vain. I couldn't find anything here and my wife tried to check in Japanese and came back with nought. It's power-steering. But I don't know if it is electric or if it requirres fluid and neither do I know where the reservoir is (if there is one). My plan of action is to put some fluid in the reservoir if it is low and see how it goes. But having wobbled the steering wheel myself I wonder if perhaps the nut holding the steering wheel on the column is loose (very unlikely I would imagine). Anyway. Could someone please point me in the right direction to remedy this? And one more thing before I forget again. - When the engine has been switched off, there is some sort of fan which continues for up to ten minutes after the ignition switch is off. I suppose it's a cooling fan. But I wonder if it is necesssary and whether or not it presents an unnecessary drain on the battery? It's the first car I've had which has a fan which keeps going for ten minutes after it's parked.
