Subaru heater


Its part of the system. But doesn't aid in cooling much if any.it just uses the hot antifreeze to heat the car. It might make a slight difference in cooling capacity on a turbo engine but I doubt it would be noticeable.

When i shut mine off sounds like some thing dripping on exhaust


it is possible that the sound you are hearing is the exhaust metal contract as it cools down thus causing a ticking sound. after being heated up from the engine running and causing the thin metal of the exhaust components to heat up and expand slightly, taking the engine heat away allows the parts to cool and contract back to their normal size. the ticking is what happens when metal rapidly cools down.

Battery cable burned & split, what's the problem?


When a battery clamp is dirty and corroded it will generate more heat when cranking the engine. If it is slightly loose it will generate more heat. If the engine is hard to start requiring more cranking more heat will be generated. This can contribute to the deterioration of the cables causing the burn and splitting.

I have no heat. replaced the heating coil, and thermostat still no heat.


Most likely there is air in the system. Open the heater hose slightly to let any air out while the engine is running at operating temp. Slowly.

Temp gauge pegs left and a/c when runs overheats engine


Why do you need to know where the temp sensor is. It sounds like it is working properly. Check for thermostat not opening completely, or a clogged radiator.

Car will go dead while driving then restart.has a code in computer for crankshaft position sensor


Mine (quest) would do this at 80 miles per hour with loaded car. Since I keep it at 72, it has not reoccurred. I suggest that the sensor is working fine. There is just a slight engineering problem with my engine that does not produce heat/vibration beyond the calibration of my sensor, as long as I keep the speed down. Fewer traffic tickets also.
