Question about 1990 Subaru Legacy
My 1990 Subaru Legacy is running hot. We have replaced the water pump, radiator, thermostat, head gasket, radiator cap and the fans are working. What else could be wrong? Could the release valve on the top of the radiator be bad? It doesn't seem to tighten?
Make sure you bleed the air out of the system on the top left hand side of the radiator or the car will overheat due to air lock

Both head gaskets have to be replaced and the heads need to be resurfaced, be sure you go thru the torque specs and sequence correctly, it is a strange process, but has to be done. subaru puts out a product called cooling system conditioner, it's advised to install this.
