SOURCE: 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.

Car shakes when 45 mph is reached. Goes away when I take my foot off the gas pedal. Reaccurs at 60 to 65mph. I put wrong ****** fluid in right before this problem started?! Stumped!!


Sounds exactly like a balancing issue. Check condition of tyres (including side walls) and get the wheels balanced. what fluid are you refering to and what's the difference between what you used to what you should've used?

Car shakes on front driver side after 70mph


Hey,, The problem may not be relate to the wheels at all. Fro what your telling me it sounds like a broken engine mount. This will cause the problem. Basically the engine mount hols the engine to the vehicle and the rubber in it dampens the vibrations. With the rubber broken you will feel the vibrations on the pedal..

However to mention the can be another reason, This one is very unlikely here seeing as the pedal vibrates but just in case check your Alignment and Cambering.

basically take the vehicle to a mechanic to locate and replace the engine mount , ore than likely is the rear mount or the one closest to the driver. You can do this yourself if you like,

1.) Locate the broken Mount (you will see the rubber in the mount broken)
2.) Use a Car jack (the ones you use the change tires) , and use it to lift the engine up to reduce the pressure on the mount.

3.) remove the broken mount and replace it.

Its just 4 bolts, 2 on the engine 2 on the mount to the car body. You will need to get a torque wrench and a lever (cast iron metal pipe will work fine) to add extra leverage to turn the bolts off.

My explorer shakes at driving of high speed


Something out-of-balance somewhere. Start with the tires, check the wheels, then have the driveshaft balance checked. Do any off-roading?

Shaking while braking at speeds 40 mph +


Anti-lock brakes mean the car shakes when the brake is applied. Try pumping the brakes.
