Sounds like the Coolant is not full and has a air bubble. It is very important to have the system filled complete. That would be the first step.Good luck and have a great day.

97 transport 3.4 engine- New radiator, thermostat,temperature sensor, water pump and new low coolant level sensor. Temperature guage goes to 260 degrees but engine does not over heat. Bled air from cooling...


Are your cooling fans working? that will definately be a problem if not working. if they are working shut car off and feel the radiator is it the same temp all over or is it hot in only top or one smaller area. if you do not have same temp feeling on all of radiator your radiator may be plugged.

Engine misfires badly after cruising a while at 3k revs,


Try to check the computer box and check if it is working and check the timing belt as well make sure it is properly tune up.

1992 SUBARU LEGACY TIMING BELT


I think factory spec is 60,000 and if you go more than 100,000 you can expect a failure...
Hope this helps...;-)

Heater and airconditioner work half time thermometer varies


It could be the thermostat (simple fix), check this first, Then i would go for the water pump but worst scenario would be the head gasket gone, Have a pressure test done on the car to eliminate this, Hope this helps

1997 subaru outback legacy overheating


I've had the same problem all year. I've had four different mechanics look at this car - 97 legacy with 2.5. I've had the coolant seals replaced, the radiator cap, the thermostat, the water pump - all to no avail. I've realized now that it only overheats shortly after running sustained high rpm's. Recently the last mechanic mentioned the bleeder valve (I didn't know it had one and think maybe he didn't know either - not a subaru mechanic). Recently it overheated again (again sustained high rpm's - apparently more prone to produce air in the system), I sat the vehicle on an incline (raising the bleeder valve to be the highest point) and let the car warm up and run for half an hour. Now 300 miles and no overheat. I went through alot with this car to get to this point. Unbelievable.
