As a side note, this is only for Subaru EJ engines, not a "general" rule of thumb. The EJ motor (like the EJ25 you have in the 2001 Legacy) are not forgiving when it comes to ignition components, it is best to use OEM Subaru plugs and wires. The plugs, NGK, are available far cheaper at any auto parts stores than at Subaru.
Now there is a chance it is something else, but yo'ure at the mileage that the wires need to be addressed.

What brand/type plugs do you have in?
I thought I had used the NGK plugs but I did not. That was before my days on this site so I was uniformed. I had used Bosch Platinums. When I went to change them they were in pretty bad shape. It looked like there was a little rust around the base of the ceramic portion of the plug.
Since the change of the plugs and wires we have had 2 day of normal operation. The check engine light has also gone off.
