Question about 1998 Subaru Legacy
My problem is that the car over heats but not right away. When the car does start to over heat you can rev the car up at a high rpm and the gage comes down. But the more you drive the car the worse it does over heat, eventually the problem can't be solved by simply reving the car up. The over flow tank is completely full and I relplaced the thermostat.
I had a similar problem. Check the temp of the upper and lower radiator hoses. If the upper one is really hot and the lower is not then there might be an air pocket in the radiator. Check the coolant to see if it is dirty or not. I changed the coolant and thermostat and drove only about 5 minutes before it overheated and the coolant became very dirty. My problem was the head gaskets. I also tried changing the radiatir cap. Hope this will help
