1995 Subaru Legacy - Fix or Dump?

Should I have it diagnosed or should I just donate it to a charity that will take it?

Are you "done" with the car? - dump it.

If I was broke I'd drive it till it dropped and put a used tranny in if the rest of the car was ok. When I was a student that is exactly what I did with the heaps that came my way.
Since I'm a middle aged guy with a job and not that much time if it was mine I'd say I got my miles out of it and buy a few years old car.

...after just doing timing belt, radiator and water pump over the summer, if it's worth putting anymore money into it...
That to me would say look into getting the tranny fixed or replaced... you have done, or had done, some pricey maintenance already (if you paid someone else to do it) and are unlikely to find another car with definitive knowledge that maintenance has been done to it.
But as said earlier, if you are getting the itch for a different car, yes this could be a good reason to dump it. If you enjoy it, a tranny really is not that big of a deal.

In salt states guys really earn thier repairs.
This is why I say the condition of the rest of the car would be pretty improtant and only he can see it.
