I recently got a 1996 Legacy Outback as my first car, and it has driven great for the first 5000 miles that I've owned it.
A couple days ago, however, I noticed some what I think is coolant below the engine. Then yesterday I noticed some more pooling beneath the engine. After checking again today, none has leaked.
It seems to me that the location of the leak is next to a radiator hose and timing belt cover (but not on the hose itself). You can see the two shiny drops of fluid in the attached picture.
There is no overheating, "off" smells, or any other behavior out of the ordinary-- just the leaking.
Any idea what may be the cause of this leak, and what I should do about it? I'm not too mechanically savvy, and this my first car, so any help is much appreciated!
