Just installed a thermostat on a 98 suburu forester that did not have one to begin with. Car was overheating and my first thought was to check the thermostat. After installation and draining coolant I replaced with new 50/50 coolant. Turned car on, took for test drive and now car is in worse shape then before.
1: how did the car drive for so long without thermostat to begin?
2: what could be causing it to act up worse then before with new parts and fluid?
have the same problem?
