just wanted some second opinions on my 01 OB issues.
It is leaking from somewhere around the thermostat housing slowly, but i cant pinpoint the leak and confirm that the water-pump is the issue without taking off the timing cover.
After a 10 mile freeway daily commute the temp will shoot up 3/4 but not into the red, and only does so coasting to a stop rather than downshifting (Its a manual btw).
So this is a clear sign that its the water-pump considering without keeping the revs up an circulating the coolant it'll run hot.
Could a faulty thermostat cause this? maybe if its not opening all the way?
(i should mention its not Subaru OEM thermo, please don't shun me haha i get it)
But surely a faulty thermostat couldnt cause me to lose such a substantial amount of coolant, no?
Its not showing any sure signs of internal leakage either.
so, what do you guys think?
all replies are GREATLY appreciated!
