Question about 1995 Subaru Impreza
Arh, you are most likely suffering from Camshaft cover oil seal problems. It is very common and causes the oil to drip on to the exhaust giving fumes and sometimes smoke if you've been thrashing it?
To solve the problem :
Remove camshaft covers both sides. Take out the little oil seals that the cover securing studs go through. They are about 1/2" across and pop into the holes that the stud and nut secure the cam cover on. You will notice the old ones to be hard and mostly cracked. Replace the cam cover gasget both sides as well. This should solve your issue. Remember not to tighten the cam cover nuts up too tight otherwise you will squash the new seals between the cover and metal seal cup they sit in. This will cause them to leak again if you do that. Check out the net for correct torque settings for the Camcover retaining nuts.You can buy the cam cover oil seals and gaskets easy on line.
Hope this helps
