Yes that is normal, Subaru failed to tell customers of the oil consumption, if you go to your Subaru dealer they will fill oil to level & tell you to come back in 1200 miles time, they use 1quart every 1200 miles

That depends from where the oil is leaking. One of the common leaks on older cars is rust holes in the engine sump. A temporary fix is cleaning the surface and using some JBWeld epoxy, but the full solution is to replace the sump. If the sump plug is leaking, replace the copper plug washer.

Oil leaks from an automatic transmission should be attended to ASAP, otherwise you risk expensive repairs. Less so with a manual transmission. Oil seal leaks, eg propshaft or axles, unless extreme, can be left till the next major service.

Might need to clean MAF sensor.
Unlike the guy I simply use q-tip and denatured alcohol or isopropanol. Brake Cleaner will also work. You must be very carefull not to damage the tiny wire that senses the airflow.
Also could be dirty air filter, car may need a tune up, bad fuel pump, dirty throttle plate and so on.
good luck!

It sounds like you over heated the engine and have damaged the head gasket. do not drive and have you car looked at more in detail to confirm the head gasket is indeed the problem

Have you replaced the bulbs? I realize it's unlikely they'd fail @ the same time, but check the Owner's Manual. as they may be connected. I know that the 2005 model had an issue where it would blow/burn-out the headlight bulbs much sooner than it should. Google that issue, too.

Google found this:
"What happened was that the dealer did the pairing when I bought the car, and I didn't see that he used the hands-free system and not the radio button controls. It's the method of pairing that creates the different behavior"

Look in the OWNER'S MANUAL. If you don't have it download from Subaru's site. You'll need the car's VIN.

Most of the relays are under the black cover that sits right behind the battery in right hand drive cars. Take the cover off, turn it over and read the inside of it, it will tell you what fuses and relays are there.
