Truukk Posted July 18, 2012 Share Posted July 18, 2012 Well, It seems like ive ran into a snag..Which Im sure we got it narrowed down to the infamous head gaskets. The problem popped its head up the other day at bestbuy pulling in..The ac stopped blowing cold and the temp hand started to sneak up to hot. So I turned the car off..Went inside about 15minutes later I came back out started the car and it never did it again. I got home and let the car cool down so we could take the cap off the radiator, Come to find out it was low on coolant ( go figure ) With dried up white stuff all around the rad and driver side and lower rad hose. So The next day we go ahead and replace the rad cap and lower rad hose. Thought all would be well..Not the case..Drove around for a bit to see if the radiator kept coolant in it..And once again the over flow jug was FULL all the way to the top and coming out of the hose area and little yellow cap draining down. The only thing left it could be is the head gaskets failing (failed) right? if anyone has had experience with this problem, It was be very grateful to know anything. I do work at the subaru dealership and so does my cousin in parts. Ill be able to get the head gaskets replaced on the side and all,But it still would be nice if there is anything else it might be before I get him to pull the heads and redo it. Oh, Maybe a bad thermostat? I know when I bought it the timing belt was replaced but not sure at all if the guy just did that or the whole thing. 1998 subaru legacy gt 2.5 5 speed by the way incase people were wondering Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
