  1. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    So the symptoms are the fans do not engage under any circumstance. Under load with AC compressor, I hear the compressor engage at idle, then disengage because the fans don't respond. I do get AC while in motion. Car will run hot in motion. OBD reads temp, so I'm assuming the coolant temp sensor...

    I have a 2005 Outback I see that the mechanics nor my car ever has coolant or none that I can see at least is that coolant supposed to be filled ? Thank you for your time :)
  3. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    I've never had to deal with my coolant before (or, I've just ignored it). I have a 2020 Outback that I have driven from the Midwest to the West Coast, back to the Midwest and then to the Rockies a couple times in the past two years. This winter I was adding windshield wiper fluid and noted the...
  4. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Hello all, I've been trying to work with both* my local Subaru dealership and trusted family mechanic to solve the leaking issue in my coolant overflow tank for the last 3-4 months. Some history: While coming back from a 2 hour road trip sometime in November of 2021, I noticed that my A/C...
  5. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Hello, I am new to this site, so not sure if i'm in the right place but want to ask about fluids. So my sisters transmission line on the radiator rusted out and blew apart. I have a new radiator on the way. My question is what type of coolant and transmission fluid and how much of each is...

    Hi, I’m trying to swap out the old coolant temperature sensor on my 2.5l 2001 Subaru Outback Limited with a new one but I just can’t find where it is. I found an image in an old post from someone having the same problem with an EJ253, but it seems to differ slightly from mine. In that image...
  7. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    I’m at my witts end at this point. So basically to start I have a 2000 Subaru Outback. About 2 weeks ago it started to over heat and would smoke from coolant hitting hot metal. Upon further inspection I discovered I had an external leak coming from the bottom of the passenger side head gasket...

    2010 Outback - 2.5i limited - 4th Vin letter B So I finished the timing belt change, changing almost everything including the water pump and thermostat. I added the conditioner and the coolant, started it up this morning, and let it run waiting for the fans to click on it. It idled at around...

    I am having the situation that my ob 08 2.5i overheats when i use the AC. What happens is a little complex, because it just happens when I do a long trip with AC, and then turn off the car, when i turn it on again then the temp gauge starts to raise up. I changed the thermostat for a OEM...

    Coolant is low
  11. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Warning: this is a novel. Over the last four months I've been experiencing major cooling issues with my 2012 outback 2.5i limited. Back in June the timing belt went, took the cooling pump and head gaskets with it. I spent over $2k replacing the belt, heads, pump and thermostat. I had a family...
  12. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Took the intake manifold off this H6 3.0 to replace a few gaskets and followed FSM procedure but not too tricky. Could be coincidence but max ECT logged* is running just a degree (C) higher since and it's winter here. I have the spill free funnel so could perform the bleed procedure but this...

    Attached below are two images of the pipe that looks like it is leaking, but what part is this? and is it in fact a standalone pipe that I can just easily swap out? I am having trouble identifying the replacement piece I would need to fix this looking at the part diagrams. It's directly under...
  14. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Hi, I have a 2019 Outback 2.5L purchased brand new last year. Around 8k miles it was low on coolant. Now, around 9400 miles it is getting low on coolant and the brake fluid is almost empty. I have talked to 1 mechanic, a few Subaru service advisors and they said that it's unusual that I'm...
  15. Head Gasket Issues
    Hello friends. Bear with me on this if you have a minute. I need some advice. I wanted to pick some brains regarding a strange string of events going on with my 07. I bought it used a few months ago, one owner with a decent service history and 106k miles. It has been a gem so far, and I had...
  16. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Hi all, 2010 2.5l Subaru Outback with around 90k miles on it (had in since around 50k). At the end of a 7 hour road-trip a few months ago the car overheated, blowing coolant everywhere (seemingly out of the top of the overflow tank). No signs of a leak anywhere. Turns out the fuse was blown...
