1996 Subaru Legacy 4-door

4-cylinder automatic AWD

205000 mi I just bought the car used. Coolant keeps draining, is now at the shop for the third time. They keep thinking they have fixed the problem. The length of time is due to the dealer not being a Subaru dealer. Has been in shop this time 4 days. 
206000 mi

US $1562
Gave up on selling dealer, took car to Sierra Service Center who fixed the problems. Not a coolant problem at all. Changed the catalytic converter, valve cover gasket, fuel injector kit, EGR valve.
