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.
If you are asking about the engine thermostat, they are not adjustable. You buy them by the temperature setting.
Cooling system thermostat is at the bottom of the engine. Look for the lower radiator hose and trace it back to where it attaches to the engine block. Bingo!
place the thermostat with the pointed facing out-ward away for the motor.
In a 2004 Subaru Outback, the thermostat is located on the bottom of the engine on the driver's side. Remove the screws holding the fitting that the hose (from the bottom of the radiator leading to the engine block) is attached to, remove the fitting, and the thermostat will be underneath.
inside the thermostat housing where the lower radiator hose connects to the engine block.
Thermostat Spring always goes towards the engine
Under the engine where the lower radiator hose connects.
You may need to replace the radiator thermostat and gasket.
It makes the car go slower, uses more gas, and overheats the brakes. I don't recommend it.
Should be in a removable housing at the engine end of the upper radiator hose
I have a 2002 Subaru Impreza Outback and it have the thermostat on the right bellow the engine. You can fallow the hose from the radiator that goes to the bottom of the engine.
If you have a 2.5 liter engine it is located where the lower radiator hose meets the engine.
You need to burp the radiator and cooling system.
if you have a 2.5 the thermostat is located underneat the engine follow your lower radiator hose to it theres going to be 2 bolts i believe it is to romove the housing as soon as you have removed the housin the thermostat is right there
They put that darned thing under the engine. It is where the lower radiator hose connects to the engine.
You could have a bad thermostat, just because its new doesn't mean its good, TRUST ME ON THAT, or you could possible have an air pocket in the cooling system.
It is on the underside of the engine. Look for where the large lower hose connects to the engine.
Subaru 2.5 thermostat's are bass ackwards...follow the lower radiator hose to the block...there ya go...
well i have a 97 legacy but if you have a 2.2 ltr engine then it will b in the same spot. my thermostat is located where the bottom rad hose goes into the engine block. if u look u should c the thermostat housing there with 2 bolts holding it in place.
Hello, Scroll up a ways and you'll find that this question has been asked and answered at least twice. Follow your lower radiator hose into the engine. You'll find a thermostat housing staring at you there.
I think it is at the bottom of the engine where the one radiator hose connects to the engine remove the two bolts that hold the radiator hose pipe inlet in place and you will see the bottom of the thermostat sticking out
u might need a new thermostat alot of times it's boiling away
Search for a business that sells auto parts. Since we do not sell parts here, a price I give you would be meaningless.
There is no way of saying for sure. As long as the engine never overheats and you change the coolant every 50,000 miles it should last the life of the engine.
Go to: http://opposedforces.com/parts/legacy/us_b12/ Select Body Style, Engine Type, Transmission, etc. Go to Cooling System. Select Water Pump; You should find Thermostat, Gasket & applicable part numbers...
