I once owned a yugo back in the 80s, and the only thing good about that car was that it was equipped with a rear window defroster, so when it broke down in cold weather, which was frequently, my hands stayed toasty warm while pushing it. As for the hot air problem, it is probally the water valve that leads to the heater core. From my recollection, there is a wire cable coming from the temperature knob from the dash which is routed to the engine compartment to the water valve. When the temp knob is set to heat, it moves the cable which in turn opens the valve, thus letting hot water from the engine block to the heater core. The cable could be broken or just disconected. Or, the valve itself may need to be replaced, which is a fairly simple job, The difficult task is finding a new replacement part. I would suggest not installing a used or junkyard part as they are most likely rusted and non functional. In conclulsion, this is not a serious problem, but only a minor inconvenience during the warmer months.

Only blows heat when accelerating

the ac core only blows cold air but You must be talking about the heater core.. In which case I would suggest that you bleed the air out of the coolant system as there is an air lock in the heater core.

Can low engine coolant prevent the heat from working

not really. if you are getting different air flow at different fan speeds then the problem is the mixing door that allows warm air thru to mix with the ambient air. something is preventing it from opening if you are not getting heat.
if your fan speed stays constant then something is either blocking the fan output or something is wrong with the fan itself.
check your temp gauge. if it is getting hotter then you are losing coolant and need to fix that ASAP.
last, depending on where you live, you could conceivably be not getting hot enough air. I had a car 23 years ago like that. At temps below 0F it just wouldn't get warm enough to put hot air in the car and I had to wear gloves, jacket, neckwarmer, and hat to stay semi-warm. I actually had to block off part of the radiator with a cardboard sheet. to get some heat in the car.

my idea would be to take it to a shop which does only A/C work and ask them to tell me what is wrong and how much to fix it. 10 years is the design life, and most of your components and the hoses that connect them are either at failure or close to it. so find out what is wrong and figure out how much you are willing to spend to fix it. do not simply recharge the system on a car that old until you find out if it has leaks.

It sounds like you have air in the system. Try having system bled and see if that changes anything. Also make sure that the fans are operational.

You're going to have to fix whatever is leaking, it will only get worse-your cooling system trys to build pressure because pressurized systems have higher boiling points. Since it cannot build pressure, it has a lower boiling point, and that will eventually cause big trouble. It also has the added effect of making the leak larger, creating the possiblilty of catastrophic failure-overheating and destroying your engine. The fact that you can see where it is leaking from should make it easy to get it diagnosed and repaired. It also is probably the reason you have no heat-there is air in the system, and it is preventing proper circulation of coolant into the heater core, hence no heat.

No heat or defrost 1992 subaru legacy (air works fine)

Heater core..easy to replace..find the complete tear down and rebuild book for your car at any part store and follow the directions on how to change it.

Radiator... if its the rad then you pretty much are looking at about 800.00 to 1100.00 for this .
If its the radiator... you will notice your car will start to over heat.
It could be even more the block might be cracked.
If you see like a steam that looks like smoke coming from the tail pipe then its the block.
Again can be fixed for about 12 to 13 hundred bucks.
Hears hoping im wrong on all accounts.
