Overheating Subaru Legacy Outback 1998

Asked by Jan 09, 2018 at 05:33 PM about the Subaru Outback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So I’ve owned this outback for about a year now
and it was running fine. About 8 months ago I had
my head gasket repaired and it was all good. I
check engine and fluids regularly. One day I went to
start up and I left it running, came inside and I had
NO HOT AIR it was freezing. The antifreeze was full
and everything was fine. I ended up buying a new
thermostat and put in all new antifreeze and
everything was fine. Then about a week later it
started doing the same thing. I have no hot air
inside and it’s really pissing me offf. Also their isnt
any antifreeze leaking or anything. Can someone
please helpppp meeeeeee? ASAP

I think you have a coolant leak. Try some Subaru brand anti-leak or Alumaseal and see if the problem stops. I would be shopping for a new car.

Still overheats man
