alot of the time bleeding the system is required when that much fluid has been lost, you have air trapped in the lines. to do this i jack the front end of the car up enough the tires are not touching the ground, remove the p/s cap and turn your wheels all the way to the left and back to the right and eventually pressure will come back check your fluid level every ten turns or so, your level will go down due to the air being purged out. dont do it to fast but not too slow just take your time the last truck i did this too it took me a total of 30 times left and right.. GOOD LUCK!
Take the temp sensors off the old engine, if you can find them, I don't where they are, I think they are on top. But that is the least of your worries, won't crank over??? What happened? Was the engine rebuilt, or did you get another engine to drop in there? Did you check the starter? Does it do anything at all? Is the battery good? Negative grounded and all? I just swapped out an engine on a 96 outback, I really expected to make an all day affair and 30 trips to the parts store. That engine dropped in, fired up and was gone. Couldn't believe it. I did read a horror story about a guy with an wrx and he had to rewire the computer,?,,, what a nightmare. I wrote him and asked him if we had to do the same, he said, blah,blah,blah, no I know why he had to, he didn't. Hope this helps.
you need to replace the multifuntion switch (sigal/headlight/wiper switch)
1 disconnect the battery
2 remove the steering column covers 3 bolts on the bottom should be 7mm
3 seperate the cover (2 piece)
4 remove the screw in the centre of the multifuntion switch (25 or 30 torx)
5 remove the wiring connections
1 reconnect wiring connections
2 install new switch (push in the HORN CONTACT ) make sure switch seats in flush
3 install torx screw
4 install the steering column covers
5 reconnect battery
hope this helps
Slow cranking should be checked 1st by having the battery checked (free at most parts stores) to determine if it's time to replace it, or if it's something else. Even before this, check battery and starter connections to make sure they are clean and tight. Dirty cables can cause your problem. If the battery checks out ok, you should have the starter checked out, if it's on the way out, it will turn the engine over slowly. Need more info on overheating. When does it happen, how often, is aux. cooling fan turning on when temp goes up, when was system last flushed, any leaks, or loss of coolant, is the engine actually 'boiling over', steam from under hood? Hot temp at idle, etc.
