    How many miles are on the vehicle? Do a visual inspection of everything first...If your saying as soon as you pour it in you see it drip out the leak location should be somewhat obvious...Of course there are tracer dyes you can put in it and locate the leak that way with a UV light..

    it's probably either blown seals, or a cracked housing. They're not too expensive to buy. Just get another.

    Sweet car btw.

    Didn't in the US, but the WRX line has been going for quite some time in the world outside.

    The WRX RA was first built in 92, and the WRX STi was first built in 94.
