Hello,

I have a 2008 Subaru Outback that has been having slight engine problems. You can smell the radiator from the car when at highway speeds (60-80 mph), the radiator fluid reivoir is also full, but no fluid is actually getting to the radiator. A puddle forms under the car in the area where the line connects to the radiator but it does not have a green color to it. It looks like there may a nut that needs to be retightened which might be the fix, but I want to make sure that it shouldn't be anything worse. Could it be the head gasket that leads to the engine?

while you are giving me advice I'm going to jerk off some awesome asian girls

could be a leaking crimp on the radiator, or, maybe the rad cap has gone bad???? I also do not trust the little overflow line to seal well on the nipple at the rad's neck so, I use 2 small zipties and clamp the line in place.

anytime these cars have even a HINT of cooling problems, you MUST check inside the radiator itself to confirm proper level of coolant.

have a subaru-friendly machanic take a look or, if you want to try DIY, you can get a kit at some parts stores to pressurize the system so you can look for a leak without being scalded. The parts store will 'rent' the device to you but when you return it you will be refunded so it's a loan actually.

The water pump has a weep hole that will drop when the pump bearing is going bad. Check that area.
