Intermittent starting issues
I have a '96 Legacy 2.2 and it is starting to give intermittent starting problems. They are starting to increase in frequency though. The car will just crank. No start. I pulled a plug wire off the central coil pack and there was no spark. If you crank for a LONG time, it has always eventually started. No hiccuping or anything like that. When it eventually does start, it runs fine. Now, does that mean a coil pack or some other electronic issue? Has anyone experienced a similar problem? Also, I have a '95 Legacy 2.2 and that car has done it once also. Can anyone shed any light onto this?

well, start in all the normal places.
my 92 2.2l was doing this and i found that my battery cable looked fine from the outside but the inside was all jacked up. all green and full of gunk.

Sounds like the crank angle sensor. I had the same problem on my old 1995 1.8L Impreza sedan. This was a few years ago and the car had less than 30k miles, but I've heard of it being a problem on numerous Impreza and Legacy models from 1994-1997. I bought the car second hand, but I had the exact same symptoms. I think the part retails for about $70.
Hope this helps.
