How do you know when your Subaru is out of oil... You can't smell it burnning off the exhaust any more. :-p

With that little mileage on the car (54,000 miles?! Holy crap!!! ), I would guess it has sat for long periods of time, which can dry up the seals. I would not be at all surprised if the rear main is leaking. You should also look at the front crank seal as well as the oil pump and rocker cover gaskets. Oil can actually find its way back to the cat from those places as well.

My Bucky leaks oil from everywhere....I just call it "marking his territory".
If you want to...Sat and Sunday in Milford CT Moosens is having a get together. Lots of parts for just about everything up to 89 and Loyales. He is moving across town and needs to clean house.Come on down ..there will be much knowledge around (plus we can oogle over your low mileage car:grin: )
There really isnt anything hard to do on these cars if you have a place to do it and the right tools.
