Hi Justin, Just seen the other part of your question and suggest you have a defective water pump the alternative being a cracked cylinder head or block. I think if you get the engine warmed up to operating temperature and observe the water pump you'll see the leakage. DO NOT PUT YOUR HANDS ANYWHERE NEAR A HOT OR RUNNING ENGINE! Let me know if my guess is correct...Please. Regards John

I have a 2000 Subaru forester its losing water and running hot at times then it does just fine and runs at normal temp only one of the 2 fans on it is running didn't think that would be the problem...

first have a compression test done to know for sure if head gaskets
from your description I think not as it would be overheating all the time
if you are running hot all the time and the radiator is original the cores could be blocking up so a replacement radiator would be a good move
next check out the cat converters because if they are blocking the exhaust , the hot /cold on off readings could be from them failing and blocking the exhaust

Suspect you have a loose clamp on a radiator hose or the oil change guy made something leak. There is a tool which is similar to a a bicycle pump in that it pressurizes the water system and your engine does not have to run or be hot to test. Some major auto parts stores may have a loaner.

Its going to stay hot and lose pressure until you fix the leak.

What is causing my car to run hot with a smell? its 199

The smell is most likely the anti-freeze you smell. You may need a new overflow cap, which over time will not hold pressure like it should and can cause you engine to run hot and lose coolant. It could be the water pump leaking, a hose leaking. Can you see where you may be losing coolant at? How often does it run hot? Do you have to re-fill after it runs hot. If you not having to add coolant, then your thermostat may be bad or the water pump. But losing coolant could be the overflow cap or a hose, and let's not forget the radiator could have a small hole or split somewhere. It's a matter of finding out where or what are it is leaking in.
