My 1997 Outback did this same thing after the head gasket on 1 side was blown.Had this fixed but still overheated on hills. Also did replace the radiator, thermostat, water pump. Had a hidden crack in the head that was not readily visible with the testing for cracks so we put a rebuilt head on and this scenario repeated itself. The mechanic placed a call to the dealership and they felt I probably had also cracked the block. So, we found a used short block and transferred all the good parts over and that was that. By the way- the original engine had 317,000 miles on it before all this started.
