Engine Cooling problem
1998 Subaru Legacy 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Manual 213000 miles
i have a 98 subaru legacy outback that's been giving me some problems lately. One day the car started to overheat, so I touched the upper rad hose and the lower rad hose and came to the conclusion that the thermostat was sticking because the lower rad hose was cold while the upper was hot. I replaced the thermostat, filled the rad with anitfreeze 50/50 mix, and I still had the same problem. I removed the thermostat and the problem was gone, but ofcourse there was no heat and the car never warmed up. The water pump isn't failing because if you rev the engine with the rad cap off antifreeze will shoot up. Could there possibly be air in the system, and if so how do I bleed it?
