  1. EJ25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (1998-2010)
    The coolant crossbar O-rings failed about 2 weeks ago and dumped the coolant tank so I replaced those and the intake manifold gaskets while I was at it. After I finished the job it started having the overheating issue, and thinking it was the thermostat I replaced that, but the issues persisted...
  2. Cooling Systems

  8. Transmission and Driveline
    Hey guys, I'm new here and am new to self-maintenance on my car. I haven't had any trouble with my '04 Forester, up until this past month. I noticed I was slowly losing coolant and was topping it off until I could get to it. So this past weekend I tried my hand at replacing old cooling lines...
