Question about 1993 Subaru Legacy
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.
