Thermostat Replacement for a Subaru

Hi. We need to replace the thermostat on our '95 Subaru Legacy. I'm trying to verify just where the thermostat is on the car. Is there a website that might walk us through the process?

Thanks,
Denise

I have a 95 Legacy Wagon and by the shop manual the therostat sets on the bottom of the water pump. It is accessed from the bottom of engine by 2 bolts that hold the lower hose on.

I get no reading on the thermostat gauge


If the thermostat gauge does not move even after the vehicle has been 'on' for a long time, then there is a possibility that the gauge may be broken and may need replacement.

The other signs of the gauge needing replacement are- 1) gauge is in danger or red zone after starting the car (2) gauge moves from normal to cold within a few seconds when the car is idling (3) rapid fluctuation of gauge

you probably have a blockage in the radiator cooling tubes, try flushing it with a commercial radiator flush, or replace the radiator-at 133,000 miles, it really doesn't owe you a thing.

Whwerwe is the thermostat located on a 2002 subaru


It is where the lower radiator hose attaches to the water pump. You do have to drain the fluid to replace the thermostat. Good luck and have a great day.

We just did the same car with the same prob. The block was cracked and was pressurizing the cooling system causing the thermostat not to open. Remove your thermostat and run the car if it doesn't overheat you need a motor. Ours didn't show any hydrocarbons in the coolant either, so try the simple

95 subaru warms up fine but when you hit the highway temp goes back to cold until you slow down again --radiator is full


Most likely your thermostat is stuck open. When you are at highway speed the air flowing over the radiator is over-cooling the coolant. Normally when it's cold outside the thermostat will close, reducing flow through the radiator. It's an easy fix, and not too expensive.

Where is the thermostat located on 92 legacy


The thermostat is located under the engine Follow the lower hose from where it attaches to the engine. Be careful with the bolts, use penetrating oil, you do not want to break one. Try to use a Subaru thermostat and gasket-- expensive, but cheaper than an overheated engine, most places do not stock the required thermostat, being an oddball temperatiue (167F), putting in a "regular 195F" thermostat WILL cook your engine. The gasket is really an O-ring affair-- it works nicely. Try not to re-use the old O ring gasket.

90 subaru legacy overheats, wheres the thrmostat


When a car overheats it's rarely the thermostat. They just don't go bad that often. If it overheats when you idle a lot, it's the fan and with electric fans, it's almost always the fan motor. But to find the thermostat, follow the top radiator hose to the engine and there it is.
