    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...
  2. 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...

    We just welcomed another new member who wanted to know why his parking lights wouldn't turn off. He promptly got a link to the official thread on the subject, along with a warm and jocular welcome for having survived the initiation. I figured that this was worth a poll. Tell the truth...

    Hello, Please help. I have had my car look at by my local mechanic and a Subaru specialized one. It has gone terribly. Neither of them found a true cause of why my car was overheating or why the coolant levels are now depleting rapidly. They replaced the thermostat just to be safe, and it seems...

    Having recurring issues with overheating over the past year in my 2008 Forester X. No visible coolant loss throughout the problem period. It has been pressure tested 3 times over this time as well, every time it comes back fine. I have been adding about 1/3 of a bottle of coolant to the rad...

    Few weeks ago I blew the lower radiator hose causing lots of coolant splashing all over the engine causing lots of smoke. I temporarily repaired the old hose waiting for a new one. However when driving, there's no overheating problem going higher speeds, but as soon as I go on lower speeds the...

    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...

    So 60 seconds away from home after a 50 mile drive I notice that the temp gauge was 75% full.. I get it home and park it, open the hood and the coolant overflow is totally full to the top. Coolant is dripping out pretty fast in the back of the engine near the firewall from a tube that at first...

    Hi! My 2009 Forester I bought 6 weeks ago is now taking 1/2 gallon of water a day and there is no evidence of a leak, no drips or puddles underneath. Where is all the liquid going? Does this mean it's leaking into the motor? Blown head gasket? There is no coolant in the oil. The overflow tank...

    I got my Fozzy in September '17 and starting having this bizarre issue where the engine heat sensor goes from normal temps, to almost in the red, and then sometimes the needle is all the way as far as it can go. And then a moment later it's back to the mid-line. I talked to a Subaru specialist...
