I have an 86 subaru wagon with 200,000 mile, it over heats after about 10 minutes of use. I have been told that I either have a broken head gaasket or a cracked head. During the short time that I drive it the radiator builds a lot of pressure. So could it be that my radiator is clogged? Or is it just that my head gaskets are blown. If it is the head gasket or head problem, is that expensie to fix myself? Is it worth it?

I have a over heating problem, changed thermastat, flushed radiator, replace cap, replace radiator. Still over heating, told, head casket ok,

what should I do next? Water pump? By pass hose?

Have had several diagnotic tests done and can't find anything wrong?

Run a compression test, that should tell you wether or not you have a cracked head gasket or not.
