SOURCE: bottom radiator hose cold. upper radiator bulging.

The fan won't come on because the thermoswitch is in the bottom of the radiator, without coolant flow the switch never gets hot. Just because a part is new doesn't mean it is good, is the thermostat an aftermarket part ? I would take out the thermostat (leave the gasket) and see if the bottom hose gets warm. If the bottom hose does not get warm, you may have a blockage or bad water pump

Yes, you could replace just the heads, bu i don't think they are the problem - it's much more likely that the head gaskets have failed , they are the ones that you should replace first.

Why has my 2003 Subaru Forester lost power when its hot?

it sounds as if your car is overheating. Alot of the newer cars after 2001 have a computer program built in that if you are over heating it will shut down a couple of cylinders by eliminating the spark or by regulating the fuel going in I had the same problem on a 3.4 litre Chevy engine and thats what it was doing basically when overheating or getting close to it since the engine would sustain alot of damage due to the engine being aluminum it protects it this way and still allows you to get off the road. your radiator needs to be replaced immediately do not wait until it completely blows off the you could be going for a water pump and thermostat.

Check your Tail Pipe to see if there is any water coming out of it. Also, Pull your Oil Dip-Stick to see
if there is any moisture on it, or if the Oil has a milky appearance.
Let me know what you discover.

You may have a small pin hole in one of your hoses that is only leaking under pressure. Of course you may not notce it with the vehicle idling because the pressure is higher as the rpms rise while you are driving.

More importantly though, you need to check your oil dipstick. If the oil looks "milky" you may have water leaking into your oil. This can happen if you have a problem with your "heads" such as a small crack. A cracked head can lead to a blown motor so check it out as you are checking all of your hoses on your cooling systems.

Good Luck!

My 1994 honda civic overheated still turning over but wont start we replaced the thermostat fuel filter and a sliced radiator hose, but still wont start

Try taking spark plugs out and then turn engine over, if water sprays fron cylinders then the reason it overheadted was head gascet fault, but once water is removed and spark plugs re-fitted then it should start. hope not head gascet tho.

please tick box if helped
