Question about 1995 Subaru Legacy
My subaru legacy wagon 1995 will not hold the oil. I cant tell where the oil is leaking out of. It ran fine one day and the next the oil was not in it and the oil light came on. What are some of the things I should look at? The oil filter and oil plug and pan look fine.
Look at the valve covers there is one on each side and they have a gasket each

Oil is 10-30 and the type of oil filter is up to you, you can go cheap or you can go expensive it is all up to you what you want to run in your car.

if by a/t you mean automatic transmission try a power purge transmission service it may have a filter sensor that is telling you to service soon

I know I will get some argument on this one, but regardless of what manufacturers recommend, the best possible lubricant is a good synthetic. They far exceed any manufacturers needs in both lubricity long life and resistance to thermal changes. they do not burn off or form deposits readily and work in any temperature climate. as far as rating, a 10-40 or 50 works for everything. With synthetics those #s are almost a decoration on the can because in reality they cover a far larger span. Personally I would not use mobil1 (too much additive package not enough real stuff) on the other end, amsoil is one of the best (they even offer a 0w50 oil)
Whatever you use make sure you keep it clean. A good oil filter is essential and if extending oil change intervals, you can just change filter and any oil lost.
I know I've ranted, but the actual lab testing results and notes I've made over the years is far longer!
good luck whatever you decide on!
