Check the engine comp and see if you can smell or see something leaking,also look under the car near the back by the fuel filler area,did you over fill it and some is overflowing from the tank vent ?. the is a charcoal canister in the engine comp that has afilter in it it may be blocked and giving of a fuel smell..

2001 subaru legacy overheating


Well it sounds like you have covered most of the bases.
One thing that could cause overheating is a restriction in the exhaust.
Do you know if the radiator fan is coming on when the engine reaches 220 degrees ?
How long can you drive it before it starts overheating, and does it boil over when it does ?

My car just started getting a strong gasoline smell. It goes away then is back after a mile or 2. I did not just fill up my tank. what can be the cause of this smell?


Loose hoses.

But, time-out, time-out. Do not pass Go, do not collect $100. When you smell gas, it's dangerous. Take it to a mechanic tomorrow.

Burning rubber smell from Subaru Legacy


Please have your exaust pipes checked, perhaps a mount is burning. The catalytic converter can make a nasty odor when it is clogged. Check the wear on the serpintine belt.

Problem with heater core in a 2001 Subaru Legacy


If you smell antifreeze then the core may be leaking. Burning oil may be rocker covers leaking on the exhaust and the odor being drawn in by the fan. In any case replacing the clutch wouldn't necessarily cause the problem.
