HI. This is a serious head gasket issue that should be addressed asap. You can risk head and block damage if driven passed the heat threshold of this particular engine.
Replace the head gaskets asap..

Overheating. coolant pour out of overflow when added


ryder2011, An overheating situation where the coolant is pouring out of the overflow usually means that you have a bad head gasket. Combustion gases are getting by the gasket and heating the coolant in the water jackets by the cylinder head. The coolant heats up very fast and escapes from the overflow bottle. Having the head gaskets replaced should resolve this problem. Good luck with this.

Got coolant in oil, so it's head gaskets or i was told its an air intake valve that goes through the throttle-body or a crack in the block.


It`s either going to be a head gasket, intake gasket, or cracked head or block. I wouldn`t expect the head or block to be cracked unless it has frozen or been severely over heated. It`s more than likely a head gasket.

Worried about a blown head gasket. Just replaced radiator becuase of leak. have yet to change thermostat (soon) I am getting no heat to the cab. I have no symptoms of a head gasket blow out such as sweet...


If you are not getting white smoke out of the exhaust then your head gasket should be ok. You could either have a Thermostat that is stuck open which would not allow the coolant to warm up to give you heat or the heater control valve is not working properly and is not closing the flap that directs the blower through the heater core to give you heat.

90 lincoln was running hot 3 yrs ago,and no heat just replaced head gasket,heads pass pressure test,no cracks in heads, head gasket was bad,still no heat,heater hoses hot, pressure test cooling system...


Have you even considered the heater core? Have the heater core checked/replaced. As for the top hose collapsing...that is not good. Have the entire system checked out by a qualified mechanic.

OVER HEATING ADDED ANTIFREESE LASTED AROUND 7 DAYS BEFORE ADDING MORE. SEEING A LITTLE DAMBNESS ON RIGHT REAR HEAD CASKET


I am not specifically familiar with the Subaru but from what you state it clearly sounds like a Head Gasket Failure!
Have you noticed any Steam coming out of the Tailpipe? If so, then you obviously have a Head Gasket Failure. This is very common on vehicles with Aluminum Cylinder Heads and Cast Iron Blocks. The difference in expansion causes a Scrubbing Action on the head Gasket(s) and ultimately after many Heat-Cool cycles the gasket fails. Typically a vehicle 6 years of age will have somewhat over 100K Miles and has seen many Heat-Cool cycles.

Check with your Subaru Dealer to see if there have been any recalls for this problem.

I would strongly suggest taking it to an ASE Certified Mechanic to have it properly diagnosed.

Bubbles in overflow tank and no heat


Is the car also overheating. This could be a possible head gasket problem. Easyly detected by doing a block test.

Using water and water coming out of the exhaust and steaming and temperature rising


STEAM COMMING FROM THE EXSAUST PIPE IS A BLOWN HEAD GASKET, WHAT HAPPENS OVER TIME THE ENGINE HEATS AND COOLS AND THINGS EXSPAND AND CONTRACT AND THE COOLING SYSTEM WILL WEAR A HOLE IN THE HEAD GASKET OR IN BAD CASES THE HEAD IS CRACKED IF THE ENGINE IS RUN FOR A LONG TIME OVER HEATED
