96 Legacy antifreeze leak...?
Posted 12 December 2004 - 09:14 PM
I was under the car today and I notice some antifreeze leaking...it appears that the thermostat is under the engine now? as the lower radiator hose seems to connect to what appears to be the thermostat housing...correct?
Is the unit above (connected to)the housing the water pump?
It seems the leak is coming from the gasket between this and the block.
Whats involved in replacing (assuming thats what it is)? With 110K on it, I have to assume the T belts are probably due (are these 50-60k like the loyales?)

Do the hoses and belts, T-belt, water pump, cam & crank seal, tighten the oil pump cover screws, and carefully check the pulley bearings and tensionner for wear and indications of failure.
Make sure you fully bleed the coolant system when you go back together to get all of the air out.
www.1stsubaruparts.com is a good source of parts.
