Question about 1997 Subaru Legacy
My subaru 97 impreza overheated on the freeway. I have tested the temperature gauge and it works fine. It was overheating and bubbling into the overflow tank. I took the temperature gauge out and it is not overheating and only bubbling a little into the overflow tank. There is not oil in the antifreeze and no antifreeze in the oil. Is this a head gasket? I also have had the radiator flushed and a new cap put on prior to this. I just bought this car and am making payments on it. A month after I ended up spending 900 bucks on it because I bought it from a corrupt car lot that probably paid off the mechanic that I payed to check it and said there was nothing wrong with it. Don't know what to do, any help would be appreciated.
If the water is flowing into the overflow tank then it is probably running a little hot. It is normal for a little bit to flow into if as the water heats and expands but there shouldn't be enough to overflow the tank. Have you tried changing the thermostat? If the thermostat isn't opening properly this will have all the effect in the world on how hot your engine runs.
