Got her home and spent some time examining her to the best of my beginners knowledge. What I thought is the radiator fan does not come on at all....and there is some evidence of leakage at the top drivers side edge of the radiator, although when I put some new coolant mixture in and let her run I didn't see anything leaking.
My understanding of cooling systems is still limited, but is it possible that the fan not functioning could have caused the radiator to have too much pressure and crack?
My test light shows no power to the fan. The fuse seems fine (it's the one under the dash yeah? Or is there a different one I'm missing?). My trusty little 'how to keep your Subaru alive book says there are a number of other things to test, but I haven't had the chance yet.
Thanks all for your input! I really appreciate your helpful kindness
P.s also wondering where to source a good radiator and fan if ends up that they need replacing.
