    How many miles are on the car? I personally have never seen this....are you 100% sure it was coolant? Are you loosing a noticeable amount of coolant? Are you overheating at all? Are you sure coolant came out of the hole, was there any on the bolt head or anything..Heater hoses are kind of above the starter, are they leaking?..Obviously the only real "internal" thing back there is the Head Gasket, however I would find it very hard for such an excess amount of coolant to get on the flywheel and throw it up at such an angle to just rest on the bolt lol...Not to mention the turbo Subies never really had HG problems like the plauged 00-04 SOHC EJ25....If you have the means I would pressure test the cooling system just to make sure if you see no visible leaks...

    Yea like I said other than a cooling system pressure test Just keep a tabs on everything...I know when you start getting up into higher mileage with a turbo car things start wearing out...Its a lot of miles for a boosted engine...
