The bung is on the bottom right (left as you look at the car) and is black in colour with what looks like a wind up toy key shape on top. its damn hard to turn though so give some pliers ready. or just take bottom hose off. it doesnt matter how you get the water/coolant out really.

How to change thermostat on 1999 Subaru Legacy Wagon


Thermostat is located on the drivers side front of the engine, underneath. You will need to drain your antifreeze first of course. Disconnect the lower radiator hose from the thermostat housing, then remove the housing and thermostat. Take note of the direction the thermostat is oriented so you can put the new one in the same way. Install new thermostat, reinstall housing & lower rad hose. Check your owners manual or repair book for quantity of antifreeze to refill! It doesn't always want to take all of it at first. If you fall into the trap of not putting all of it in, you WILL overheat your engine & most likely blow a head gasket. Best procedure I've found is to elevate the front of the car & remove the bleed screw from the passengers side top of the radiator, then fill. That will help the air escape from the system. Air pockets in the system = hot spots and you dont want those.

Water is not circulating car gets hot and expansion tank fills then suddenly after some time it will **** the expansion tank dry and drive at normal temp again 1995 subaru legacy 250t


Sounds like your thermostat has gone bad and needs to be replaced.
Your thermostat is located under a metal housing on the top of the engine. The upper radiator hose connects to this housing. To change the thermostat you basically need to drain the radiator after your engine is cold, disconnect the upper radiator hose from the engine, and remove the bolts from the small housing. replace the thermostat, and clean the surfaces on both sides and replace the gasket too. reinstall the housing, attach the hose, and refill the radiator. start the engine, warm it up and check for leaks, then re check the coolant level after the engine cools off again

1995 Subaru Legacy Wagon Radiator


Hi sir, if you want to do a proper job here's how.
  1. Get radiator flush let you car Idle for a while or drive for 15 min.
  2. Let Car cool Down
  3. If no drain PLug remove the hose at the bottom this is the same pipe going into your water pump, Work gentle with it try not to damage the pipe.
  4. open your rediator cap, this will allow the water to train from radiator.
What about all the dirty water inside the engine? this is how to do a decent flush.

  • The car should be cold
  • remove the water pipe at the top of the radiator
  • take your garden hose and insert it to the rediator don't force it just hold it there.
  • Start the car let it idle, open the hose pipe.
What happens now is that the water pump pulls all the clean water trough the rediator and pushes all the dirty water out the other side.
  • when water is clear turn off water
  • kill engine
  • Tighten water hose
  • refill with good Anti freeze anti boil and top op with water
  • drive the car till hot
  • check for any leaks on the pipes you removed before
Hope this Helps

1995 legacy 250t wagon - overheating


Two possiblities; a blown head gasket, or a freeze plug leaking. If possible take it to a trusted shop and have the pressure checked on the radiator, they can tell you if your radiator is stopped up, or the freeze plug is leaking, and if it's blowing back in the radiator when you remove the cap then it's a blown head gasket.
