Question about 1995 Subaru Impreza
The car wanted to die but I kept going by just keeping the rpm's up.It started rattling like a car does when it is overheating. The temperature guage said the temp was normal and did not show it as hot. Steam came out from under the hood and the car quit. The steam came from the radiator overflow that threw water onto the battery and engine. The car will turn over but will not start. How can I check to see if I killed it or not. And if I didn't kill it what should I do to start troubleshooting the problem. I figure if I can get it started than I can find the overheating problem.
Sounds like it overheated and blew a head gasket. Pull the plugs and see if one or more are wet or full of water. Hopefully it did not warp the heads. I wish you luck.
