Question about 1997 Subaru Outback

Open Question

Car was running great untill I serviced the radiator @ jiffy lube. Did the flush then it started to overheat while driving. Took it back trying to figure it out, then we did the thermostat and it still overheats. Thought possibly there is an air bubble stuck in the line?

I was driving this morning, no problems yesterday but did get my oil changed and a new air filter at jiffy lube yesterday. AS I was driving the car started to over heat. White smoke was coming from the...

Take it back to them. Most likely they spilled washer fluid or oil on a part that gets hot. Then when you drove the spill evaporated. They may have checked your antifreeze and improperly tightened the Radiator cap causing a leak.

Observe the temperature gauge for overheating. Some Lube places do more service than oil changes. You need to pressure test the Radiator for leaks. They could have simply overfilled the fluid.

What could make my 03 civic ex overheat and cool down then overheat again while losing heat inside??? Already replaced radiator, water pump, thermostat.... motor

your heater has apparently restricted the coolant flow....hopefully a good system back flushing will cure the problem....use a flush obtained from a parts house....I would buy the hose kit for flushing as well...good luck to you

I want to change the antrfreeze in the raditor.

Not only the cap, but you have to find the drain. They are usually put in the most difficult places. After ten years consider having your system flushed, it'll be good for your radiator. Take the car to a jiffy-lube type place and they will change your oil for you too. The Taurus is a good car, treat it right and it will give you good service.

Jiffy Lube is notorious for taking things apart and not putting them back like their supposed to do. I USED to use them....try looking at the air filter, cause they always take it out to show you. I would bet its an airflow problem....please rate me...thanks
