The engine air filter is located above the engine and filters the incoming combustion air for the engine. These should be checked every oil change and depending on where and how you drive they should be replaced about every other to every third oil change or else bad gas mileage and poor engine performace will occur.
The cabin air filter removes dust and pollen from the air entering the interior of the car through the heating and air conditioning system when the control is set to "fresh air" or "outside air". This is less critical but will eventually be clogged and will need changing.
Also normally they are different styles of air filter so a different type for each one, your owners manual should tell you the types.
There is no Power Steering Filter on a 2002 Subaru Legacy/Outback.
The Subaru Outback fuel filter is located inside of the fuel tank. Changing the fuel filter can be very costly and time-consuming.
where would you find out if the Air Conditioner filter is blocked on a 2005 Subaru Outback
It's on the right front side of the engine and accessible from under the car.
Bottom of the engine near the front. It points straight down.
I found no mention of a power steering filter in the owner's manual or in the service manual for Outback.
Top front of engine, beside Oil Pump, right above Oil Filter.
There should be a black box located on the left, inside your engine bay, mine's made out of plastic, your air filter should be located in there.
The oil filter on the 2.5 engine is located on the underside of the engine on the passenger side. Find the oil plug, look up and to the right, above the plastic splash guard, a bit toward the front of the engine.

4.5q with a full drain and oil filter change
The 1991 Subaru oil filter is located on the left-hand side of the engine. The oil filter will be near the area that the oil pan meets the engine.
Change it every 5,000 miles and you will be fine.
The filter is in the fuel tank , and accessed thru a panel under the rear seats. They last at least 100,000 mi.
See this site for the cabin air filter: http://node28.wordpress.com/2009/07/13/replace-cabin-filter-07-outback/ (copy and paste into the browser window). The engine air filter is a bit of a joy as access is tight. The filter is in a housing by the left front wheel. There is a "scoop" intake manifold leading from the very front of the engine bay to the filter box. You need to undo the spring clips, pull back on the "upper" (back half) housing and extract the old filter. Make certain you put the new filter in right way 'round (refer to markings on filter or on how the old one was in there).
Behind the glove box. You have to remove 7-9 screws & a piece of the paneling to get to it.
I just found an answer on yahoo that says it is a life time filter located in the tank. I'm sure that means the lifetime of the pump.
My '96 had one under the hood behind the battery. It is a black can about the size of an oil filter with two hoses connected at the top. --Ken
