  1. I bought a 2.2 L manual 1996 subaru legacy outback last year. It consumed a lot of oil and puffed a little blue smoke coming down steep roads or hills. I flushed the rdiator when I got it, oil and filter change, brake change, valve cover and seal change, air filter. drove it for about 2 months when it started to hard idle. Noticed if i was coming to a stop in any gear other than first it would die, and I could keep it from dying by pushing in the clutch almost from deceleration, even if going 30mph. The hard idle became a bucking when slowing down and at times when speeding up. changed the 02 sensors. nothing opened up the cat to find it had melted into a block and was clogging the muffler. a relative broke most of it out in the cat but didnt clean out the muffler further back. hooked up to to read the codes and got: p0500 vehicle speed sensor (speedometer doesn't work) p0201 injector circuit cylinder 1 p595 iac system p0301 cylinder misfire un hooked the iac and it instantly breathed better it is still not connected still uses a lot of oil now puffs out blue smoke at high rpms other than 5th gear and occasionally at start up. car is choking on itself really bad I have looked up so much stuff online and am at a lost. Any help would be very much appreciated
