Question about 1990 Subaru Legacy
Like the previous poster said, take the cap off the radiator start the car and fill the coolant, also if you recently installed the thermostat make sure its the correct way around, the subarus thermostat is upside down and has to be put in the opposite way than whats written on the thermostat AKA the Rad end goes toward the engine, and the Eng end goes toward the rad... otherwise the thermostat never opens then your left wondering why your engine is glowing orange.

2 things that have worked for me in the past- either lop off the top hose at the radiator end and slowly fill the cooling system from there then top up the normal way (through the header tank) also maybe try cutting off the brass breather pin from your thermostat and refit it.
