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

If your fans are not coming on then your engine is not receiving the signal that it is overheating. This can be caused by bad fans (unlikely they are both out) a bad relay, or coolant temperature sensor. I would start by checking or replacing the temperature sensor as it can become corroded which is what the PCM uses to turn the fans on. Many vehicles use two sensors, one for the gauge and the other for the ECU, make sure you check/replace the right one. It should be a cheaper part and if you are unsure then match the new one with its location; it should be on the intake manifold or near it, generally with one or two wires. I think you will find your problem as they are common failed parts.

it sounds like you have air in the cooling system and it needs bleeding out
