One thing to do, would be check the condition of your rad hoses. Not uncommon for them to be fine at certain speeds, but soft enough to collapse & restrict flow at higher speeds.

Hi, have just bought a 1997 subaru forester s/tb.There is a clicking sound in the engine -is it normal?


If you just bought the same car brand new, would you
expect it to click?

Common sense

No -- it is not normal to produce & sell a product like that

It is 15 years old,that is why it clicks,not much you can do

'90 Subaru Legacy overheating....


cool air and overheating point to low coolant level. Do you have a bleeder valve near the thermostat? You may have air trapped in the system. If no air trapped, the radiator may be plugged up not allowing proper circulation of coolant.

Overheat on my 1997 Subaru Legacy GT


Sorry if this might break your heart. I have '98 Outback which is the same 1st generation DOHC 2.5 engine. These are common head gasket problem (I'd say 100% of every engine sooner or later) once you have had your car overheated.

You will not get this comfirmed by just have your mech check the compression on the cylinder because we call it phantom leak (internal leak which can be confirmed with hydrocarbon in coolant). And then you will end up replace every other thing before you could reach the source of problem.

Other signs of this issue are as following: random overheating after freeway or uphills drive, bubbles in coolant overflow tank, oil residue in coolant overflow tank, bubble nioses from the a/c vent.

You're looking at $1000-1500 repair by independent mech as they have to pull engine out to fix the problem. I had mine fixed two weeks ago and now my baby is running like a champ.

google for "Subaru head gasket problem"

FUEL CONSUMPTION


The fuel consumption sounds about right for a turbo, perhaps a little high. Hwy consumption depends on how you drive. If you cruise at 100 kph, you should get around 8 L/ 100km. Round town, about 10 L / 100km.
