Plastic radiator ends open up (crack) under heat and pressure. Leaks while driving, closes up when you stop. Do a board search. Someone had a post as I recall.

Could be hoses too, but you should be able to see that easily.

You mention a car that looks exactly like mine, although mine is a 91 and has more K on it. It's very easy to figure why it doesn't hold coolant. Fill it with water but be careful not to splash water anywhere so that you will know if there is any leaks anywhere. Once you find where it is leaking (hopefully it's not somewhere deep within the engine or head somewhere), you can determine if it is worth fixing it. If it is just the radiator, it's well worth fixing it (IMO).

Nice, you will love it!!

I am sure it is a radiator or hose. 2.2 almost never had HQ issues.

My last Subaru was a 86 GL-10!

You will be amazed at the changes to the Legacy from the older models.
