ok, so i found the leak from before, and let me tell ya, it was hard to find.
so now i have another problem. i now have oil and some coolant leaking on top of my block. any suggestions? im going to just rebuild the whole top if i cant find it. also, i dont know if this happens often with subarus, but one of my injectors is leaking. im thinking, hoping, its just an o ring.

where is the leak on the top of the block?

injectors most likely an o ring....what injectors are u using? and what intake manifold and fuel rails? do you know where on injector is leaking? top or bottom?

+1: if you take out the power steering lines and dont buy a new gasket for the pump hardline when you reinstall...it can leak.

mine did. it spills the fluid really slowly (when looking at it), but it will accumulate on top of the engine, then burn, stink, and smoke like
mad. not fun.

oh, and the gasket is ~$2 from the dealer...cheap and easy.
