Oil Leaking Into Coolant

This can be easily seen by opening your radiator, and seeing if oil is ontop of the radiator fluid, or if your coolant is a very dark color (if it has been running and has gotten mixed pretty well) What cuases this? 90% of the time, in a Subaru, its a cracked head. Rarely does the actual gasket go out, they just crack =( ( for those who arent into cars, a 'cracked head' is seriouse, should be taken to a repair shop imeidatly, a new one runs almost 400 US Dollars. Rebuilt ones are cheaper, and less reliable. If you plan to do all this yourself, give yourself a 3 month window for a full overhual on the engine, unless you REALLY know what your doing! )
