To run you need fuel and spark. lets check first the spark pull a plug wire and a spark plug and have some one turn over the engine hold the plug to a good ground and see it there is spark. then check to see if you are getting fuel.
we can go from there.

My 1993 Subaru Legacy L has a sticky gas pedal, sometimes. Yep, sometimes it sticks. Mostly it doesn't. Any ideas where I should start my troubleshooting? Don't want anyone getting hurt from it...

I would start by looking at the linkage under the hood...making sure that it is not being bound up by anything...make sure the cable that goes down to the pedal from the tbi/carb is free if nicks and does not have any holes in it or where the insulation has maybe rubbed off..if you do find the cable has damage, then I would recommend replacing at once for safe operation

1993 Subaru Legacy Sedan 2.2 liter engine, has and over heating problem. Replaced thermostat, replaced water pump, and replaced radiator with all new. Still over heating! Any ideas??

Usually the main reason for a Subaru to over heat is a blown head gasket. If it is pushing fluid out through the overflow bottle. I would suspect a blown head gasket.

Engine will turn over,but not start on a 1993 Subaru Legacy

It sounds like it could be a fuel pump problem. Find your gas tank under your car and have a friend turn the key on but not try to start it...i guess the accessory function, anyways if you're fuel pump is working you'll hear it kick on briefly...if not then silence.

If it's mega cold in your area, it could be ice. We've had several things not open lately. All due to moisture/condensation freezing.
