Good stuff, this should answer 95% of the general maintenance questions.

Sticky time :)

That's just the owner's manual. A free pdf download from my.subaru.com.

Any chance you have the maintenance schedule?

Does anyone have a list of what is done/checked in each service from my.subaru.com?

i have a question regarding maintenance of the interior:

i had the steering wheel replaced on my LGT, and i was just curious to see if anyone knows how to keep the leather from fading/tearing/wearing down? the steering wheel before had visible leather fade and wear from sweat and oils.

is the entire steering wheel made of leather? it feels like only the middle inner part is made out of leather and the outer part is of some other material. anyone have any idea?

I'm pretty sure the whole thing is made of leather, except for the middle piece where the horn is. My car has almost 60,000 miles and the steering wheel looks great. I think a big thing would be how clean peoples hands are. If you have a dirty job, just keep some handy wipes in your car. Other than that, just care for it like any other leather, conditioner and don't scrape it with your keys, zippers etc.

Head gaskets??

Chances are we wont know either being you replaced the engine. Maybe taking it to a competent shop that deals with Subaru's?

Based on reading your message, I'm betting it's not something you can fix yourself. ;) Obviously the coolant is not circulating through the engine, but since it's possible the problem could be with the hoses, radiator, thermostat, gaskets, and water passages in the engine, it's impossible to tell you where to start.

99% sure its a headgasket, had the same thing happen to a used 98 wagon we just got

Possibly, but it does sound like a head gasket. You should probably take it to a subaru dealer and at least get them to diagnose the problem.
