    Theres several things to check...

    You're heater core could be gone which the year sounds about right that it would go out this time....

    If your antenna is on the right I have heard of those leaking over time.

    So check your coolant level if its still decent then I dunno what else to tell you. As I don't know subie motors but the symptoms you provide are a common thing on any vehicle that the heater core goes out on.

    Do you have a down pipe installed and/or has the heat shield been removed?

    I guess I'll take that as a "no".

    There can be an issue where the lines that go through the fire wall of the passenger side, can over time become damaged by the increased heat off of after market down pipes and/or where the OEM heat shield has been removed. Especially if the lines have been moved and not secured properly. There was a recent thread on this issue. I searched quickly but was unable to find it, right this second.

    I would definitely check any areas where lines pass through the fire wall on the passenger side. I would also check the windshield seals.
