You need to find out if the fire or fuel quits and go from there

If your Subie is a newer model (mine is 2015) you have to unlock it with the remote-equipped key, and start it with the same key. Otherwise you can run into the "engine immobilizer" that kicks in if you are not using the correct key with the proximity sensor built in.

Why would the front differential dipstick get pushed out and spray oil on a 99 Subaru legacy outback It has been -30 and my car hasn't ran for a couple days When it did start it did this?

The reason for a oil spray out of the front differential dipstick in a 1999 Subaru Legacy is because of the cold. While it was -30 the car oil thickened, when the engine started and tried to pull the oil through, pressure was created.The engine was not able to pull the thickened oil in and the pressure pushed the oil out of the dipstick.

Most 2.5 Subaru's take a little over 4 quarts of oil with filter. Add 4 quarts and start engine. Shut off engine and check dip stick. Make sure oil light goes out. If you have a gauge it should read when you start it.

Classic "air bound". Start engine, leave off rad cap, turn heater all the way up, open plastic vent on opposite side of radiator, and slowly fill with coolant.
