The above links have the videos for the fuel pump replacement. Just follow the videos. One suggestion is to spray the hoses with some silicone spray to help their removal. the third video is the most explicit and clear.
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
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
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.
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.
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.
