SOURCE: Subaru Impreza gas cap door won't open

If there is one - In trunk - directly behind the gas filler door - behind trunkliner (carpet)
The cable should not have any problems... use a partner to hold the door release and try and pry it open with your fingers.
The spring popper may be bad.
Try this if you dont have an assistant :D
I had this problem with my STI -- easy to fix by bending the little metal on the inside of the fuel door that provides the spring action to open the door. 5 second fix

Try replacing the transmission filter and the trannie fluid. Mine would only go in reverse, and now it drives pretty well. This year has a screw on filter. Hope this helps

SOURCE: where is the coolant sensor located?

The Coolant Temperature Sensor is located under hood, center, front engine area, below valve cover, mounted next to water outlet Under hood, center, front engine area, below valve cover, mounted next to water outlet.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION CAUTION Use extreme care if removing a sender from a vehicle which has been driven recently. The coolant could be extremely hot.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Access the thermometer on the intake manifold (1.2L engine), radiator (1.6L, 1.8L, 2.7L engines), or coolant pipe (2.2L, 2.5L and 3.3L engines) and unfasten the wire harness attached.
  3. Loosen the draincock at the lower portion of the radiator and drain enough coolant into a suitable container to bring the level below the thermometer.
  4. Loosen and remove the thermometer. Inspect the threads of the manifold, radiator or pipe, and use a thread chaser to restore the threads if damaged.
  5. If reinstalling the original thermometer, remove sealing gasket and replace with a new one.

To install:
  1. Position thermometer, and new sealing gasket into hole in manifold, radiator or coolant pipe, depending on model, and hand-tighten.
  2. Using an appropriate socket, tighten the thermometer to 2-3 ft. lbs. (3-4 Nm).
  3. Connect the wire harness to the thermometer. Tighten the radiator draincock, if not already done.
  4. Connect the negative battery cable.
  5. Fill the cooling system with coolant and bleed.

Good luck, and remember rated my help.

How to check if my fans work in my 1992 subaru impreza

I assume you mean engine cooling fans. The primary fan is bolted to the water pump and turns with the engine-always runs. The other fan is for when the engine begins to overheat. the coolant temp. sensor triggers it at high temp. You'll hear it kick in. My 1.8L Suby's have rarely utilized this electric fan. Be careful looking around under the hood. Both fans are right there on the front and ready to hurt you. If your car is overheating and this secondary fan has not come on, then it's not working. But you should look deeper to find out why the overheating is occurring-this fan is for "normal" overheating;long steep climbs etc.

Hi my 1995 impreza wrx keeps overheating and water is coming out of the overflow on the cylinder that you use to add the coolant what could be the problem

After a review of your question. We have concluded that you may have a failed head gasket, If you have overheated it the will now have a cracked head.


1. Seek professional help and contact your local repair shop.

2. Go to your parts store and pick up a can of block sealer follow the directions explicitly and you may just have a chance of calming down your engine.

Hope this tip guides you to a solution that can help you.

My subaru 97 impreza overheated on the freeway. I

If the water is flowing into the overflow tank then it is probably running a little hot. It is normal for a little bit to flow into if as the water heats and expands but there shouldn't be enough to overflow the tank. Have you tried changing the thermostat? If the thermostat isn't opening properly this will have all the effect in the world on how hot your engine runs.

I got a 1996 subaru impreza 2.2. The thing started overheating and blowing cold air from the vents when you turn the heater on. I changed to thermostat and i know thats not what it is. what could it...

If the Coolant is being pushed back out, I would suspect a head gasket. Sorry to tell you that but at least its a Subaru and they built the car better than anyone else. Not a real hard job and parts are less expensive than others. First I would do a compression check to find which head is leaking. Sometimes when you pull a plug it will have water on it. If it is not a bad leak it will just loose coolant and heat up. I wish you luck and have a good day.

Intermittent overheating

You have blown another head gasket. Oil won't get into the coolant, or coolant into the oil, but after the engine warms up exhaust gas will force it's way into the water jacket and stop coolant from flowing through. The best part is that it will be intermittent for a while, which makes it hard to find, but it will get progressively worse. Hopefully, it will be the same gasket the dealer has already replaced, which will help you convince them to warranty the job. You might want to make sure they had the head machined before putting it all back together. Good luck!
