OCCASIONALLY LURCHES FORWARD WHEN I ACCELERATE?

1997 Subaru Legacy • 19,000 miles

Occasionally lurches forward when I accelerate? And when I turn all the way to the left, I hear a rattling sound sort of where my front driver's side tire is.

I would have the motor checked. It sounds like you have a hesitation either from low fuel pressure or a possible bad mass air flow.

The noise is most likely a failed cv joint. Get it confirmed and have the axle replaced.
