need help!! engine noise problem!!

If also does it when I floor it from a stopped position. It also does it on the highway usually starting at 90 km/h at a certain rpm.... when it makes the noise and I let go on the gas pedal it stop.
I listened to it under the hood when someone slowly gave it some gas and it seems to come from the top of the engine... almost like a clicking/slaping sound.
The car run fine, except for the noise!
I have a 97 legacy gt with 97,000 KM

The dealer recommended I call SUBARU and see what they could do for me....probably not much!
Is this normal to break the crankshaft at such mileage and that it requires a whole new motor?
They told me that it could be a few days to a few weeks before it seizes...I have a road trip planned for next week........new 2004 subbie...thinking about it!

If it is very loud, and causes vibration, it is likely to be an igntion timing fault. Firing too early causes the flamefront to collide with the piston while its still on the way up. Sounds like someone is banging on the engine block with a hammer.

It does not vibrate or consume more oil than usual. It runs great other than the nois!
Anyone know what a broken crankshaft would do/sound like?
Anyone else....opinions/comments? Think a new motor is due??

Posters have described the sound it makes as something resembling what you're describing.
Maybe worth exploring.
A broken crankshaft is possible but it's the first time I read of something like that and I've been here and on alt.autos.subaru for three years.
