    Engine Tap?

    Lately I've noticed after my wrx warms up I start to hear a metal tapping sound from the engine bay during acceleration. It only happens when the engine has warmed up and when I give steady gas. It doesnt always happen but its quite often.

    Also I noticed the other day while turning right into a parking spot, the front right wheel area was kind of shuddering. Its hard to explain but it happens at slow, tight right turns.

    Any ideas?

    the sound from the engine bay like a tapping when giving steady gass sounds like a valve tap to me....as far the shuddering when you turn maybe your CV axle is shot or sumthing along those lines. sorry i cant be more help Good luck
