  1. Cooling Systems
    Hey, y'all. I have a concern that I didn't start to feel until after I did the job. I topped off my Subaru Forester with this coolant because the bottle says that it's made for Subaru and I had this bottle for a while sealed, so I thought why not top it off since I have it. I needed about half...
  2. Cooling Systems
    Hello folks, long time since a post for me. I've done my due diligence and have done all possible that I know of. But here's my issue. My 2016 Forester 2.5i has been over heating while cruising down the highway. If I smash the gas the temp drops. The coolant reservoir overflows and recently was...
  3. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    I just took a camping trip in my 2015 2.5i that involved some long climbs on desert highways, and I finally managed to heat my engine and transmission up to the point of getting an AT Temp warning light. The oil temperature got up to 260 F. I pulled over, slowed down and got the temperature back...
  4. Air Conditioning and Ventilation
    2019 Forester with less than 25k miles on it. Still under 3yr basic warranty. Suddenly last week when I switched on AC found out its no longer cooling. I did not feel it is cooling at all. Air seems to be at the same temp as outside. Tried a few troubleshooting steps and here are my findings...
  5. Cooling Systems
    Today I ran my car for a few minutes, shut if off and looked under the hood and my coolant overflow was full to the top, with my radiator looking very empty again. When I opened the radiator cap some coolant shot out of the reservoir, scared the crap out of me but it was barely even warm, I...
  6. EJ25 - 2.5L Turbocharged (2004-2013)
    Howdy! I have an '04 XT (150,000 miles) and I've recently been experiencing some overheating issues on inclines. I've never owned a turbocharged vehicle before, so my question is, is this normal? I live in Denver and within about ten minutes of hopping on I-70 passed Golden the needle starts...
  7. EJ25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (1998-2010)
    Even in this forum there's lots of posts about people experiencing #4 cylinder misfires or even ringland failure on their naturally aspirated EJ25. From what I understand there's a bit of a trap/bottleneck in the coolant flow around cylinder #4, which is why they placed the knock sensor right...
  8. Air Conditioning and Ventilation
    Greetings, all, I bought an '09 Forester a year and a bit ago. I found out during my first snowy winter after moving from sunny California that the heating switch (to go from AC to heat and vice versa) doesn't work. The dealership here switched it manually but I want to fix it... The part is...
  9. Cooling Systems
    Hey guys, I have a 2003 X 5spd and I like driving in the mountains a fair bit. No matter how I drive, I end up getting quite hot during long hill climbs. I've tried everything from crawling up in 1st gear to just sending it. This past weekend after replacing my head gaskets (part of the original...
