If the starter turns, i would presume that there is a problem with your ignition switch.

2002 Subaru outback is leaking antifreeze and not heating up.

This is common issue early sign head gaskets failure for EJ251 SOHC engine for external coolant leak. Second gen 96-99 with EJ25D is worst because when head gaskets failed, it's an internal leak that allows coolant and oil mix together in the combustion chamber to destroy engine.
You can drive it for at least 6 months or more as long as you keep top up coolant since the leak should be small at a slower rate leak. I drove mine for a while before change head gaskets. You're looking at `$1000-1200 job a dealership since you might as well change the timing belt, water pump, idlers while engine is pulled to replace head gaskets.

MY 1999 SUBARU LEGACY B4 has the power light flashing on the dash board every time the engine is running, i have tried checking for mechanical problems through a computer but it shows me that nothing is...

You should rule out a failing alternation tri-diode pack first

When one or more failed diode(s) on the tri-diode fail AC ripple voltage will leak to the 12V DC circuit.


When small amount of AC ripple leak out to 12V DC circuit sensitive electronic like ECU,alarm system will not work well.


The easiest method is go to a good auto parts stator and ask for a in car alternator test.

Make sure they has a Midtronic or similar unit that can check the diode pack.

Engine overheating 2-3 miles down the road. Heater fails when gauge gets to high. Replaced thermostat. Idiling is fine.

Sounds like possible head gasket failure. Is it pushing antifreeze out through the over flow bottle? When it pushes out enough fluid the heater will not heat. A easy check if head gasket is to fill radiator and leave cap off and start motor. It will blow the coolant out wile running. I wish you luck. Have a good day.

At times my j10 engine does not want to start.But with a small push it gets started.please tell me why .

if the battery is good, but nothing happens when you turn the key (perhaps a click..), it is the starter solenoid and/or the starter motor.
The starter solenoid gets stuck and worn-out. It can be rebuilt or replaced.
If this is the problem, once when the engine is not starting, try tapping the engine (or the starter motor if you can identify where it is) with a hammer or something hard.. it might work then -and the problem is definitely the solenoid.
