  1. Just when driving as oil temp doesn't get hot enough when idling. Last night after spending an hour or so trying to bleed all the air out i took it out and hit the right hand side of the speedo a few times and it was fine, until the oil temp got up to 95'c ish when it rapidly overheated. As for the engine rebuild I can't remember, would have to look through the service history again to check.
  2. 75000 roughly but it already had a head gasket change at 35k with the previous owner. Update is that it only overheats when the oil temp gets to around 96'C according to my defi's
  3. Fitting a new thermostat to my car, removed the old one for a week as it was faulty. Where should the little hole be, I can't refer to the old one as it fell out before I saw?
  4. My hawkeye wrx sti spec D has been overheating the past week. It did it once about a year ago, then a few months ago and now a couple times a week. At the weekend I decided to investigate and removed the thermostat completely as it seemed to be sticking. The car ran fine other than warming up slowly so determined that to be the issue. New thermostat in last night and the car overheated again on the way to work this morning, although not as bad as before. Could it be the orientation of the thermostat? Or incorrect fitting? I didn't see what orientation it was when it came out. Put it in with the little hole at the top so spring at the bottom.
