Hi, It's my first post on here, was wondering if anyone had any thoughts or ideas on best steps to take with the situation I'm in. I have a 59' reg (2010) Outback with the 3.6 EZ36 engine and I live in Aviemore, Scotland. I bought the car a couple of years back with 67k miles, 5k later the coolant light began to illuminate intermittently, this got worse to the point where it was flashing (indicating to pull over let the engine cool).

2000 forester, 58000 miles,N/A Had this car for just over 2.5yrs, when first got it it was over heating so bought all the gaskets/timing belt etc as suspected HG failure, turned out to be a blocked radiator. However on a recent 120m trip to Lincolnshire I had to stop 3 times as it was showing 92c -102c on the digital temp gauge that I had fitted when I did the radiator, the temp gauge on the dash did not go any higher than the middle position.

I had someone say that it was my head gasket but ive checked for hydrocarbons and I'm confident its not that. Im now struggling to figure out the issue.. is it radiator related?
Hi guys, I am a newbie Legacy owner and recently came into issues with my Blue Arrow (Legacy B4 RS 2001 2.0 automatic JDM). The car started to overheat and then white smoke came from the bonnet. The coolant reservoir was empty so after topping it up and letting the car cool for 7 hours I set of for home hoping I was just negligent with the coolant and the same thing happened - overheating, smoke and reservoir low on coolant. Couldn't really tell from where the smoke was coming but it was from the water pump area. Now the whole engine is covered with antifreeze. I've checked the radiator hose f
