List your problems from use of the Subaru coolant additive
Posted 03 December 2012 - 01:22 PM
I know what the goop looks like because I'm trying it out in my H6 (external head gasket coolant weep), but the problem was on my wife's 2005 Forester, which I assume had the magic goo added by the dealer after it had its head gaskets replaced (external oil leak).
Anyway, on a trip the rad was not holding pressure, too much coolant was being sent to the overflow reservoir, and it was not sucking coolant back up from the overflow.
Problem was the cap.
Checked the cap under magnification, looks like some of the magic goo collected on the metal plate that seals under pressure and allows the coolant to be sucked back in.

I recently bought a car that the previous owner attempted a bottle of HG repair several times. I had to blow out the heater core to get heat. but fortuantley everything else is OK.
How many miles on your 03 LLBean? I have an O2 LLBean with 104 and so far all is OK.

The problem with magic additives is when they don't work, some goober always says 'well then maybe 4 will work!'.
