Just a word of warning to all turbo charged Forester owners: When you see the heat gauge move ANYWHERE near the red; STOP IMMEDIATELY! These engines blow head gaskets like ...that!

Mine had an overheating problem, which suddenly appeared out of the blue, one day. I had a new thermostat fitted, on advice from the franchise workshop. About a week later, whilst on an out of town trip, I suddenly saw the heat gauge rising again. I stopped and it went down again. I limped back to the workshop and after inspection it was found my head gasket(s) had gone...:confused:
