Hi all... I have an 07 WRX Ej25

My car has started over heating. My reservoir keeps refilling unroll engine has cooled down. Going back about 3 weeks ago I had the rad pipe burst. I had that changed when I cot my clutch done, worked fine for couple of days then over heating again. Changed the thermostat and again worked fine for about 4 days then over heating again. I have drained all the coolant out and replaced with more... seems to be idling ok at the moment. I inspected the heads couldn't see any noticeable signs of leakage, and can't smell the eggy smell or see and white gunk. So at the moment I'm very puzzled please anyone share a little advice. Thanks

You can Google "car sniff test" and it will bring up shopping options if you wanted to do it yourself without driving the car. Failing that ask the garage if at all possible someone can come out. If you have aa/rac cover even better.

If you have bubbling id certainly recommend a sniff test. Even stick your nose in the overflow and check for exhaust smell.
