It sounds like the Belt was too loose and was not allowing the Alternater to Charge the Battery. I would Jump the Car off just long enough to get to the Mechanic and have the Belt, Alternator, and Battery Checked out In addition to the Radiator.

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.

2001 subaru legacy overheating

Well it sounds like you have covered most of the bases.
One thing that could cause overheating is a restriction in the exhaust.
Do you know if the radiator fan is coming on when the engine reaches 220 degrees ?
How long can you drive it before it starts overheating, and does it boil over when it does ?

The car is over heating i put new thermostat

On my 1998 subaru legacy outback limited I replaced the thermostat and did a radiator flush and fill and it overheated when I tested it. It basically overheated because there was air in the system. I relieved it by running the car and partially unscrewing the black plastic relief screw on the top left of the radiator(looking at it from the front of the car) until it stopped hissing and fluid started coming out then I screwed it back tight and I've never had a problem since. I think subarus are pretty fussy with this because my mechanic even missed it when they did the head gaskets.

Have you checked to see if the radiator fan works? And have you checked to see if the water pump works? Two very important items key to overheating.

I dont know where my thermostat is in my 92 subaru legacy, but i think theirs something wrong with it. I have a brand new adiator, but my car is overheating still?

The thermostat is mounted low down on the bottom of the engine where the large radiator hose connects to the radiator. The housing is bolted to the engine block and the thermostat is inside. Don't attempt to replace it unless the engine is cold otherwise you will burn your hands. Make sure you bleed all of the air out of the system before driving off.

'90 Subaru Legacy overheating....

cool air and overheating point to low coolant level. Do you have a bleeder valve near the thermostat? You may have air trapped in the system. If no air trapped, the radiator may be plugged up not allowing proper circulation of coolant.
