2002 Subaru outback is leaking antifreeze and not heating up.

This is common issue early sign head gaskets failure for EJ251 SOHC engine for external coolant leak. Second gen 96-99 with EJ25D is worst because when head gaskets failed, it's an internal leak that allows coolant and oil mix together in the combustion chamber to destroy engine.
You can drive it for at least 6 months or more as long as you keep top up coolant since the leak should be small at a slower rate leak. I drove mine for a while before change head gaskets. You're looking at `$1000-1200 job a dealership since you might as well change the timing belt, water pump, idlers while engine is pulled to replace head gaskets.

I have a 2000 2.2 chevy cavalier that i buy today and it have oil in the reservoir bottle what can it be plz help

If it has oil in the coolant resivoir bottle it has most likely got a blown head gasket or a cracked head/block. It will require diagnosing and repair which will be expensive. I hope you got it cheap. Fitting a second hand engine may be a good option as you dont know how hot this one may have gotten.

OK my friends..I found out that the battery cable was bad on my daughters 2000 Kia. I turn the key, the engine cranks, and water starts to pour out of the exhaust. Head gasket, right. 131,000 miles. I ask...

Is water disappearing from the header tank? It`s common to get water out the exhaust especially on cold days but if it`s disappearing from the header tank and it`s difficult to turn over then it does sound like the head gasket. It may be repairable but you would need to remove the head and have it checked by an engineering company for flatness and pressure testing.

96 s10 2.2 cyl. . started spitting an sputtering like water in fuel. What could this to happen? What should i do first?

This is a very common problem with the 2.2 Liter engine. The Cylinder Head Gasket has most likely failed due to expansion and contraction of dissimilar metals. The Cylinder head is Aluminum and the Cylinder Block is Cast Iron. The Cylinder Head expands at a greater rate than the Cylinder Block creating a Scrubbing Action on the Head Gasket. Another problem on this engine is the passenger side rearmost Cylinder Head Bolt is typically overtightened at the factory distorting the Cylinder Head and causing Gasket Failure directly around that bolt. I have had to resurface cylinder heads and replaced gaskets on many of these engines where these symptoms were described.

Oil in over coolant tank

If there is oil inside the coolant liquid that is the head gasket.

Check first if oil can leak into the coolant tank from the cap.

Usually when you get oil into the coolant liquid you have an head gasket problem, do a compression test, or buy the home tester below. Guides - HOW TO TEST FOR A FAILED HEAD GASKET

Engine replacement due overheating problem

The syrup you are seeing (if it is white) is emulsification (water mixing with oil) with all due respect that car is too old to throw a lot of money at.
The emulsification would tie in with the overheating problem, this sounds more like a head gasket gone or a crack in the cylinder head.
I would take it to somewhere else and get a quote for a replacement cylinder head gasket and valve clean job, don't bother to check your cylinder head for cracks because crack testing is an expensive service, go to a breakers yard and get a second hand head to replace yours with.
