Legacy estate overheat problems

I have a legacy estate gt-b twin turbo 2.0,i have an overheat problem,the water will not circulate,no presure builds in the hoses,and it blows out the coolant from the resivior tank,also no heat inside the car,car has bein park for 3months,and if i was to start it now it will start with the first turn,which is making me think its not the head gasket,just the water pump (hopefully)????

    it turn out to be head gasket,which has led to a very expensive repair....1450euro..but i honestly think its really worth it.

I would replace the thermostat as a first step. It sounds like the thermostat is not opening after warming up, keeping the coolant from circulating.

Just had main turbo replaced in gt twin turbo legacy. and it is still producing blue smoke.


if your blowing blue smoke has nothing to do with turbo
blue smoke means your burning oil
which means u have bad valve guides or bad piston rings
you will need a motor rebuild

Water dumping


i do not know, but stop using the car until you fix it. If you overheat the turbo, it will be damaged beyond repair,and it is extremely costly to substitute.
