Why is my car still overheating

Asked by Mar 22, 2017 at 04:17 PM about the 1996 Subaru Legacy

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I put a new radiator in and it still overheats after about twenty minute of
running it builds pressure and pushes it out the overflow. Would soft hoses
make it do that?

building pressure out the overflow could be caused by a blown head gasket is it smoking white smoke out the back? Is the oil milky looking?

The oil is fine and it only builds pressure when the water starts to boil. And its not bubbling when I start it and take the cap off. Usually u can tell the head gasket is blown by doing that

Did you flush the radiator? Change the thermostat? Make sure the cooling fans are working?
