Jerking accelerating


similar problems: After 20min cool down jeep was bucking/lurching that I traced to bad o2 sensor in exhaust manifold (which you've replaced is seems). The second problem of bucking/lurching, backfiring under certain driving conditions I traced to the battery sliding into the computer wiring harness, disrupting sensor input / output signals. I cured this problem by placing a 1" spacer on rear battery clamp, pushing the battery forward. Been years and no return of problem.

1997 subaru outback make clicking noise on in reverse. Also, sometimes when the car is turned off, the car lurches a bit


does it click while reversing straight or while turning? Sounds like a stick shift. Lunging probably due to e-brake needing adjustment(if stick shift). If your car only clicks while turning in reverse you need new front axles and can probably drive that way for a while

Reverse died, engine HOT, drive lurches


I would have to say that your transmission failed. The Tranmission was trying to lock up and the engine was being forced to labor extra hard and that is what more than likely created the extra heat.

Car lurches and bucks, rpms erratic on acceleration on hills


You could have any of these problems:
1) vacuum leak- broken air hose or disconnected air hose.
2) water in the gasoline- add a water remover to you gas tank.
3) bad or disconnected spark plug wire(s).
If this were my Forester, I'd take it to a mechanic who has a electronic engine tester..

The car lurches and lunge at times as if it is not getting fule properly, I want to change the fuel filter but not sure where it is located


I just replaced the fuel filter in my 2002 LeSabre last night. It is under the car, about foot in front of the drivers side rear wheel, about 16" in. My fuel line at the screw on connection had some rust, so I think I may need to have that replaced.

I have the same problem with the "lurch and lunge". I cleaned my MAF Sensor, changed my plugs and ignition wires, and now changed the fuel filter. The car runs much better, but I still get the "lurch and lunge" if I step hard on the gas after slowing down (like for a turn). So, if I hit the gas hard when I'm going around 10mph, it still happens.

For your benefit (and mine), what other components could cause the problem and are DIY replacable.

2005 Subaru Forester Stalling, lurching and hesitating


Different oil brand/blend/formula? Thats a good one. As long as the oil was 5W30 it's not causing your problem. I would find a independent service center that specializes in Subaru's.

Front end makes clacking noise


If the clacking noise gets louder when turning its the drive joints at the front wheels
