My car will not accelerate when I’m turning left--the engine only
revs. Once I straighten the wheel, acceleration is normal. I feel
the car jerk once the wheel is straightened if my foot is still on the
accelerator. It feels like something is disengaged when the steering
wheel is turned and then engages when it is straightened again. This
only happens with left turns. Thanks for any help you can give.

Assuming you have an automatic transmission, check the AT fluid
level with the car in Park using the AT dipstick. There's a good
chance the fluid level is very low and you're sucking air instead of
fluid on left turns
