Question about 1997 Subaru Outback
Heats up fast thermostat opens then closes fast then wont open again and then my motor over heats
Check to make sure your fan is kicking on this you can check easily by letting the car warm up and open the hood to see if the fan is coming on to cool the car down also check to see if your coolant is low if not then we dont have no leaks and were leaning more towards the fan scenario which could be a simple fuse.

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.
