Question about 1995 Subaru Impreza
Came home early to fix my Subaru. 2 dead Cylinders, pretty sure you need all 4 on a 2.2L.
Was NOT the coil pack (common problem), turned out to be "power transistor unit" mounted on the firewall above the ****** (Unusual). acts as a sort of exciter for the coil pack.
I would consider this to be a common problem with Subaru's over 350,000 miles. LOL

I would check the injectors for each cylinder, and check for spark in each cylinder.
If the injectors are not firing in all cylinders, it may be a computer.
If spark occurs in some but not all cylinders, it could be an ignition coil.
DISTRIBUTORLESS IGNITION SYSTEM General Information A distributorless ignition system is used on all 2.2L and 2.5L models. The system consists of a cam and crankshaft angle sensor, knock sensor, two ignition coils, an Electronic Control Unit (ECU) and assorted sensors. The system control features a quick response learning control method that compares data stored in the ECU memory to data received from the sensors. Thus, the ECU constantly provides the optimum ignition timing in relation to output, fuel consumption, exhaust gas and other variables. The ECU receives signals from the airflow sensor, water temperature sensor, crank angle sensor, cam angle sensor, knock sensor and other various indicators to judge the operating condition of the engine. It then selects the optimum ignition timing stored in the memory and immediately transmits a primary current OFF signal to the igniter to control the ignition timing. The ECU also receives signals emitted from the knock sensor. Ignition timing is controlled so that advanced ignition timing is maintained immediately before engine knock occurs. Two ignition coils are used, one for the No. 1 and No. 2 cylinders, and one for the No. 3 and No. 4 cylinders. A simultaneous ignition type is employed for each bank of cylinders. This eliminates the distributor and achieves maintenance free operation. Ignition control under normal conditions is performed by the ECU measuring engine revolutions. Using the data it receives, the ECU decides the ignition timing according to engine operation. Ignition control under starting conditions is set by the ECU at 10°BTDC.
