Here is an album with 3 pictures of my leak. Just noticed this today, thinking it's been going on for awhile. (http://imgur.com/a/UPEcy) Check that out and let me know what you think. I'm thinking a head gasket might be cracked? EA82 Engine in a 94 Loyale

Extremely unlikely that your head has a crack.  On Subaru engines, all coolant leaks find their way to the bottom of the engine to drip.   You need to look around the top of the engine.

Mmm, The secos photo seems to show that the water found the way in between head cylinder and gasket.

You must clean al least that part of the engine and then re check or take some new photos for us to help you. But it will be easier if the engine is clean to detect where it come from.

almost always is a old hose...  check all hose in the intake, heater core and thermostate... but has to be with the motor clean and cold.

intake, thermostat, or throttle body gasket

+1... + little hose running from under the carb/throttlebody to the thermostat housing.  Lots of leak possibilities, the head and headgasket have nearly 0 chance of being the source for an external leak.

 

If I had to guess, the leak is running down into the sparkplug pockets on the head and then draining out through the drains in the head casting (which is why those drains are there).  Look for a coolant trail running into the rear sparkplug pockets.

Clean the engine. Then, you Will find the leak.
