1995 legacy 250t wagon - overheating

Is losing water and not from hoses. Has a new waterpump and thermostat and hoses are in good condition. When you try to bleed air out of radiator it doesnt stop. Flushed system and put in new antifreeze in. 1 week later started overheating checked coolant which had gone rusty coloured. Do you have any idea if the 1 of the hed gaskets is gone?

Sometimes after changing the coolant, people (like me) decided to fill the radiator ... only to find the car overheated like a candle.
When you fill the car, DO NOT fill the radiator first. Pull the top hose off, and fill the engine (via the hose) with coolant. Once that's full, shove the hose on and then top off the radiator.
Solved the problem for me. Has never overheated since.

Two possiblities; a blown head gasket, or a freeze plug leaking. If possible take it to a trusted shop and have the pressure checked on the radiator, they can tell you if your radiator is stopped up, or the freeze plug is leaking, and if it's blowing back in the radiator when you remove the cap then it's a blown head gasket.

Car overheating but the coolant is cool, what could be the problem? thermostat was replaced, water going somewhere, could it be the water pump?


If your not adding water, your thermostat is stuck or possibly obstruction in hose or radiator top. Put your money on the thermo being stuck. If adding water it should show up on the ground or in your oil. good luck

Water is not circulating car gets hot and expansion tank fills then suddenly after some time it will **** the expansion tank dry and drive at normal temp again 1995 subaru legacy 250t


Sounds like your thermostat has gone bad and needs to be replaced.
Your thermostat is located under a metal housing on the top of the engine. The upper radiator hose connects to this housing. To change the thermostat you basically need to drain the radiator after your engine is cold, disconnect the upper radiator hose from the engine, and remove the bolts from the small housing. replace the thermostat, and clean the surfaces on both sides and replace the gasket too. reinstall the housing, attach the hose, and refill the radiator. start the engine, warm it up and check for leaks, then re check the coolant level after the engine cools off again

I have a 1996 250t Legacy Wagon which slowly over heats. Where is the thermostat on this engine. Fans also not coming on that i can tell Ther appears to be little or no water in the top left hand hose...


thermostat in on the underside of the engine on the drivers side. sounds like the temp switch is bad if the fans arent turning on. but also the 2.5 engines are pron to have an internal headgasket leak. if your overflow anifreeze bottle is overflowing then you ave a headgasket problem as well

Engine overheat


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand it would appear that the radiator fan is not working. In some versions, either the A/C or the heater must be turned on for the radiator fan to work. In some other incidents, the fan utilizes a clutch. Common design makes use of the inverse property of silica oil to serve as the clutch. Still others have a relay that actually does the switching on of the fan. Of course it would be to your advantage to likewise check the temperature sensor on the radiator.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.
