    For those searching on this problem as I did...

    Cold starting was hard; didn't even have to
    be that cold. Backfiring and poor drivability
    until warm, then OK.

    No check engine light.

    Based on previous suggestions, I replaced the
    coolant temperature sensor. That completely
    fixed it. Good thing, too, I'm not sure what I
    would have tried next.

    BTW, getting to the thing is a b*tch. I once
    did it on my '95 impreza and couldn't remember just
    how. This article was most
    helpful! Step by step photos.

    Those hoses didn't just slip off, however!

    Sob... It didn't stay fixed. So I'm looking for the next
    likely cause. Bill H.
