Its either your thermostat (real cheap fix), radiator, or water pump but thats doubtful. Check your thermostat first, then your radiator. Good Luck!

1993 Subaru Legacy Sedan 2.2 liter engine, has and over heating problem. Replaced thermostat, replaced water pump, and replaced radiator with all new. Still over heating! Any ideas??


Usually the main reason for a Subaru to over heat is a blown head gasket. If it is pushing fluid out through the overflow bottle. I would suspect a blown head gasket.

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.

Temperature Gauge Always On Cold


As long as your gauge is still moving up, there's no real problem. You have heat coming from the heater. It's only a problem if it's getting too hot. What's going on is that you don't let the vehicle run long enough, and it's so cold outside that the engine stays cold. It raises in temp when your stopped because there's no airflow through the radiator. The thermostat just heats up the engine block, and won't change the reading on the gauge. When this goes bad your car will overheat in just a few miles.

Sounds like the water pump.Check if you see coolant or coolant residue behind the water pump pulley.
