TROUBLE STARTING

1993 Subaru Legacy

Engine Mechanical problem
1993 Subaru Legacy 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 167400 miles

I have a Subaru legacy (93). Recently the check engine light came on. It has a hard time turning over, but once I drive it, it runs relatively well. It leaks a fair amount of oil. The starting problem is at its worst after the car has sat for a few hours and seems to have become progressively worse. I am thinking about the fuel injectors or the fuel system, but as stated above, it runs fine after it starts. The plugs appear clean and are less than 6 months old. It may be time to replace the car but would like to get through this winter.

Thanks in advance for your help!
