Just purchased my first impreza 2 days ago, a 1998 sti version 5 type-r.
When got home and parked it up I noticed it was dripping coolant/water. But I had driven in 50miles and no problem.
It seems now that it does not do it all the time, just sometimes. But drives fine and the temperature/thermostat is bang where it should be.
On close inspection the dropping is coming from the front left of the engine (thought originally was intercooler water) where there is a black round cylinder next to the radiator, I still cannot see where exactly the leak is coming from as it’s inconsistent.
From this black round cylinder there is a hose that is about 5” long that’s not connected to anything, is this an overflow??? And theres nothing to worry about??
Any help I would be very very grateful
