Overheating


See if the engine turns over by putting a socket and ratchet on front bolt that hold the pully on. May have to have starter motor checked out if the motor turns freely.

How to check if my fans work in my 1992 subaru impreza


I assume you mean engine cooling fans. The primary fan is bolted to the water pump and turns with the engine-always runs. The other fan is for when the engine begins to overheat. the coolant temp. sensor triggers it at high temp. You'll hear it kick in. My 1.8L Suby's have rarely utilized this electric fan. Be careful looking around under the hood. Both fans are right there on the front and ready to hurt you. If your car is overheating and this secondary fan has not come on, then it's not working. But you should look deeper to find out why the overheating is occurring-this fan is for "normal" overheating;long steep climbs etc.

2003 Jeep Liberty leaking pale yellow fluid from very front of car-at first I thought it was water-haven't been running AC


sounds like coolant and that vehicle overheated or now has a leak ---and replacing plugs usually doesnt correct an overheating problem and if told had bad thermostat [ which will cause overheating ] i would have system tested for leaks then look into thermostat as a problem to your overheating problem

Coolant leaking from above front suspension


If it's from the front of the engine, the water pump may have failed. Check for water coming out from the bottom of the pump.
Was the overheating caused by low coolant level?
If not the pump, check your engine freeze plugs and hoses.

My check engine light is on. Advance Auto Parts says it is the PO 325 Knock Sensor Malfunction Bnk 1 or Single Sensor. My Subaru is a 1996 Impreza. I also have a fast blinking left turn signal that...


  1. Knock sensor. Check all the wiring connections on the engine heads. Your sensor probably is failed (but see Overheating #3 below) .
  2. fast blinking left turn signal. The front bulb has failed, so replace it.
  3. oil temperature light. This may be an indirect result of #1, as the engine is not running properly and this can cause overheating (but see Overheating #3 below)
Other causes of overheating ...
  1. low oil level
  2. low coolant level. If you are losing coolant, the cause has to be located. The correct fill method is to top up the radiator, then repeatedly squeeze the top rad hose, to "burp" all the air out of the cooling system. You will hear the coolant squishing in the top of the engine. Keep burping until the coolant squishing noise stops.
  3. head gasket(s) may be failing, a not uncommon problem for your engine model. Check for oil in the coolant.

Antifreze leak/overheating by pullies in front of engine by waterpump


The water pump is located behind the fan, behind the pullies, at the front of the engine. It's probably what's leaking.
