Heater core could be plugged, only way to check is to pull the heater hoses off and try to run water through it, if no water or little water then its plugged.. you would need to replace.

SOURCE: Thermostat Replacement for a Subaru

I have a 95 Legacy Wagon and by the shop manual the therostat sets on the bottom of the water pump. It is accessed from the bottom of engine by 2 bolts that hold the lower hose on.

SOURCE: Subaru Legacy 1998 Over heating

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

SOURCE: Clutch replacement details for 1996 legacy GTB

Trust me it is quite an excercise and not worth doing yourself. With the proper tools, a hoist and a my mate who is a Guru Subaru Mech it took 4 hours. Without having done it before and without the Hoist ( which is wha I was going to do initially ) I'd say you wouldn't get much change out of 8 - 12 hours.

SOURCE: 1997 subaru over heats new radeator thermostat water pump

Hi,
Check to make sure the thermostat is installed the correct way around. It's easy to get it wrong.
Bulb part should face the engine block - while the spring should be on the radiator side.

For the price of a replacement - just fit a new one the right way around. Use a new gasket and a smear of blue Hymolar to seal it. Use coppergrease on the thin bolts and don't overtorque.

If you haven't flushed in years, it was probably just overdue. Flush again to make sure you get it clean. Run the heater while flushing to get the heater core clean too. Make sure to get air out of the system after refilling (park uphill when filling). Then check again after a month or so to see if oil is somehow getting into the coolant. That would indicate a bad gasket or possibly a crack in the cylinder head.

No heat, over heating


Not all new thermostats are actually working thermostats.It may require a second one.However,if the fan does not work it will be hard to tell.Is there a fan belt running to it?The goop that was added to it could actually plug up the the rad coils or rods and make it extremely hard to cool itself.It needs to be flushed.

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

1993 Subaru Legacy Sedan 2.2 liter engine, has and over heating problem. Replaced thermostat, replaced water pump, and replaced radiator with all new. Still over heating! Any ideas??


Usually the main reason for a Subaru to over heat is a blown head gasket. If it is pushing fluid out through the overflow bottle. I would suspect a blown head gasket.

Overheating


Have you checked to see if the radiator fan works? And have you checked to see if the water pump works? Two very important items key to overheating.
