Hi everyone, I'm new here and own a 1993 legacy L  It was given to me 3 years ago and is my first experience with subaru.  I love it.  I am happy to see how helpful everyone here is and look forward to keeping this car rolling for another 20 years!
I will look for appropriate places for my specific problems my 2 main concerns are an electrical short in steering column and check engine code of purge valve solenoid.

Keep the rust off it and it will last forever. What sort of electrical trouble is wit the steering column? The purge control solenoid should be an easy fix, located on the passenger side intake manifold runner

Thanks for the help, if the rest of this post belongs in another place let me know but for now...

The electrical started sometime ago when I turned the key to start it nothing would happen nothing, no clicks no anything. Turn the key a second time and it starts right up.  This has started to happen more often and the other day I put the car in reverse to back into my parking spot and as a turned the wheel the car suddenly died, everything went off.  Im not sure if it is the key or somewhere else in the column but i feel pretty certain that is somewhere in that area.
