2002 Outback air condistioning

I recently purchased a 2002 Subaru Outback wagon. The car runs great expect when temperatures hit 95 degrees. I live in Las Vegas, so 95 is a cool day. Above that air temp the car runs a little hot, cutting off the air conditioning, which is when I want air conditioning. I have had the ac recharged, and put in a new termostat, and the car is running cooler, but the ac barely trickles on. Is there something about Subaru's and hot weather?

Look at your fan. You either have a weak fan clutch or if its electric you have an electrical fan problem. You need to see if the fan is running strong when it overheats. I am assuming you have checked your coolant.

On the 2002, head gaskets were the subject of a recall. They can go bad almost anytime, usually after 30k, but a good mechanic can take care of it, especially if they torque the mounting bolts properly, but it can take a good number of mechanic hours and cost. The timing belt needs replacing around 100k along with associated parts, a cost you can get quoted. The Outback is a nice car and runs very well if maintained.

2000 Subaru Outback Wagon (100K miles) with P0420 Code


I do not know for sure if this is the problem you are having, But, I have noticed that from 95 up to 2002 I have seen a lot of PO420 codes that have been just the sensor. I do not know if it was a weak sensor or just that program telling it that it is below threshold. I did notice that if the vehicles are run for a long trip at highway speed it goes out. I wish you luck and have a great day.
