. Ihave checked coolant levels which are ok. Oil is ok and there are no leaks. When the temp is reading high I checked the radiator and this was cold. Temperature rises gradually once the engine begins to warm up. No coolant is being lost and engine oil colour is ok.

Do you
have the same problem?

Head gasket. Oil won't always go milky. Does over flow fill up? Dose cooling system build pressure fast? Does heat out put from heating vents go cold when temp is high? All signs of sub head gaskets. Most COMMON Subaru complaint. Been a problem for years.
