Most likely there are even more vacuum leaks. hoses are under the front passenger seats, and go to every door and to the trunk. if you isolate the vacuum hoses from the inside of the car by plugging (use golf tees) the hoses that lead inside the car and everything works great, thats where your leak is. there are vacuum diagrams for this car available on the internet for free.

Car blows cold air then sometimes hot when excelerating can tell there is loss of power

You could have a bad (broken) vacuum line going to the dashboard area from the engine compartment. These cars use vacuum to open and close the flappers under the instrument panel that control the heat and cooling air routing. The heater controls on the dash usually just open and close valves that route vacuum to the vacuum motors that move the flappers. I had a bad vacuum line under the hood on my '95 mustang last summer. The A/C wouldn't cool the passenger compartment even though the compressor was doing fine and the fluid lines from it were cold. The vacuum line break was on the firewall in the engine compartment. It was real obvious once I figured out what to look for. That could also explain the loss of power. If there is a vacuum leak anywhere in the car, lots of other things that use vacuum don't work right either, including the engine computer etc. Also, the engine could be running lean if a vacuum line is broken, The engine is sucking extra air in through the broken vacuum connection and reduces fuel/air mix robbing you of power. The faster you run the engine, the worse it will be.

Whining coming from front

It sounds like the power steering pump has a broken pump vane and will need to be replaced and then the system flushed to get the debris out of the system so it won't ruin the new pump.

96 subaru legacy, engine light comes on, has code P0304 #4 missfire,this only happens once in a while, going up a slight hill or a long hill, I have driven from seattle to portland and back with car loaded...

I fought with similar problem on my sub for a couple years. Had both a sub dealer and ind mechanic check. Spent lots of money but it still happened. Eventually I solved it by replacing vacuum hoes and putting clamps on them. Seems it was a slight vacuum leak. Worse under load (going uphill) and especially when cold.

Ac blow cold then go to heater

Does this happen when you're going uphill, or accellerating? If so, it's likely that the controls are vacuum operated. Check all the vacuum lines for cracks, look for disconnected vacuum hoses, etc. Some cars have normal drift of the controls that you speak of when under hard accelleration or going uphill.

Could be a wheel bearing and/or a rear differential pinion bearing, which usually get worse when under load(going up hill). I would definitely start there.
