    here is a checklist
    do the cooling fans both work?
    is the coolant at the correct level and mixture 50/50?
    thermostat could be bad.

Check water pump or bad radiator there is a circulation problem. As a last resort check and make sure its not a bad head-gasket check oil for antifreeze look under oil filer cap for cream-ish white residue. Good Luck

I have a 2001 Subaru Outback. Today it stalled on my way home and I was able to restart it. I thought maybe my oil was low so I added some. It stalled again this evening when my husband was driving and we...

I would have the head gasket checked.
When the engine is cold check the rad and overflow bottle.
These motors have a tendency to leak externally at the head gasket towards the rear of the engine.
Low coolant will cause over heating at the engine and loss of heat inside the car due to vapor locks.

2004 F350 diesel no heat in cab when at idel driving or over 1000 RPM is fine

Sounds like the thermostat is not closing completly if
at all. When you're driving or running it up to 2000 rpm. the engine is working and gets warmer, at idle
no work no heat. replace the thermostat and I think
that will warm things up. Hope this helps.
Good luck.

1997 subaru over heats new radeator thermostat water pump

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.
