My 1995 subaru impreza wrx wont start from cold keeps cutting off and wont take any trottle till its warm but once warmed its grand till next morning again any ideas please and thanks


i own the same car, same problem. you'll need a new throttle body, your cold start isnt opening up. DO NOT get one from a junk yard. you'll spend 50 bucks to find out that one does the same thing.. it is a very common problem with subaru's, though very easy to fix and it is for sure a "diy" project all you need is a flathead screwdriver and a 10mm socket and a ratchet

I have a 2008 Subaru WRX that leaks water inside every time it rains. The water also pools somewhere in the body of the car creating a washing machine sound when I drive. Anyone hear of anything like...


hi i have had this problem before it turned out to be the interior heater radiator coil under the dash it had a hole in it causing water to pool in the car and causing the heater to **** in air causing the heater to sound like you mentioned i would give that a check first, the radiator is under the dash either on the passenger side or near the middle as some models changed position

My 1990 subaru legacy was running fine-I went to the store less than a mile away and when I got home something was leaking from underneath the car and there was steam coming from under the hood..i don't...


Just because it was not hot to the touch, does not mean it is not a coolant loss problem----if the coolant is so low, there may not be enough to make the radiator hot (though usually the steam in the system will).
...a stuck thermostat can also let the engine overheat while the radiator remains cool (the fluid only circulates within the engine and is stopped from getting to the radiator.
...likewise a hose could have burst below and let the coolant out, over heating the engine, and the steam going out the ruptured/popped off hose; would look underneath..
...when cool, check the level in the radiator (likely empty),
...and less than a mile away, may not have ever heated the radiator, though usually only a mile to heat up the coolant
...of course there is always sabotage
...and water pump failure, (so no water circulated) causing overheating and no radiator heat, and possibly enough pressure to blow off a hose, but usually the radiator cap relief spring would allow pressure to escape (and that steam would heat up the radiator on the way---but if only steam in the radiator, it would cool off quickly after venting, because no more water in the radiator to hold the heat. all depending on climate,temp and further details , symptoms..
hope helps..

Wrx 1995 engine airlocked after replacing radiator,been advised to hand fill engine and then re-connect hoses to rad,where do i hand fill into? header tank?


Take the cap off your rediator, start the engine. The air should slowly bubble out, as the air comes out of the system, the Rad fluid will drop. As it is dropping keep topping up your rad fluid. It may also help to squuze the rad hose this will also help to get the air out of the system faster as well.

I belive my headgasket is gone not sure need help


Not the head gasket. Sounds like your thermostat is bad. The radiator fluid coming out of the drain pipe on your radiator means that the engine is overheating and the excess pressure is being elieved through the drain pipe.

Change the thermostat.

My 98 subaru forester is over heating


The head gasket may be a problem, but it may be simpler, if your thermostat is on the bottom of the engine.
If coolant came out when the thermostat was changed, there should be a screw, probably plastic, that goes into the radiator, or near the inlet hose, at the top. This screw is used to release steam when car overheats to restore the vaccum. Turn car on and let idle to overheating temperature. NOW PROTECT YOURSELF FROM GETTING A STEAM BURN. Turn the screw very slowly until steam starts to come out, don't unscrew all the way or you will loose a lot of coolant all over your engine. make sure the coolant resevore has enough coolant to get sucked back in to the engine or this will take longer. Continue this process until there is no steam coming out, I let mine go until a little liquid coolant starts to bubble out from around the screw. Tighten screw and keep a watch on your temp gage, you may have to do it a couple of times as the coolant forces the air pockets out of the line. If this doesn't solve your problem then I would say check the headgasket.

Running Hot


Sounds like the water pump.Check if you see coolant or coolant residue behind the water pump pulley.
