I think you will find it uses similar systems to the Free Lander and rear wheel drive only kicks in when one or both of the front wheels lose traction.

you will likely need to replace the following:
Duty C Solenoid
Transfer Clutch Pack
Reduction gear
All of these parts are located in the tail end of the 4EAT automatic transmissions. The reduction gear can separate from its hub and damage the above mentioned parts too.

Doesn't take a technical engineer to find what could be the problem ! Looking a wiring diagram I see three relays that are used to turn on the cooling fans ! One of the relay's contacts are stuck closed causing Battery voltage to be applied to one of the fans when you turn the key to the on position . Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop .

Well, let's see: fuel line/fuel filter blockage, bad or failing fuel pump, bad or failing carburetor, dirty or bad plugs, bad or failing plug wires or, in a car that old, residue in the gas tank fouling the fuel line. Also about a gazillion other things - chief among which is the distinct possibility it's jumped time. I've owned Subaru's since the 80's and can assure you that if you don't change the timing belt every 80,000 mi. or so, you'll eventually wish you had. You may well be at that point. Good luck, though. . .

USUALLY A BOX UNDER THE HOOD. YOU CAN SOMETIMESA TELL BY PULLING ANOTHER ONE THAT IS EXACTLY STHE SAME, SUCH AS HEADLIGHTS OR WIPER. IF YOUR HEADKAMPS OR WIPER WORK, AND THEY USE THE SAME RELAY, TRY PULLING THE STARTER RELAY AND SWAPPING WITH ONE YOU KNOW WORKS.

The knock sensor and o2 sensor readouts are from wrong or no detonation and the UN burned fuel leaving exhaust , not faulty sensors , sounds like a compression problem but could be many things
