I REALLY NEED HELP ON THIS ONE. LOTS OF QUESTION MARKS FLYING OVER MY HEAD.
FORESTER TEMP JUMPS UP TO ALMOST RED AT HIGH RPM ( OVER 4000 ) IT GOES UP IN TWO SECONDS AND THAN BACK DOWN JUST ABOUT IMMEDIATELY ? IN THE PROCESS IT THROWS SOME COOLANT OUT BUT OTHERWISE ENGINE RUNS GREAT.
NOW THE MYSTERY HEAD GASKET ?
WELL I HADE THE SAME IDEA AND THE SPARE ENGINE SO I DID REPLACE THE ENGINE.GUESS WHAT,SAME THING IS HAPPENING WITH DIFFERENT MOTOR WITCH IS GOOD FOR SURE.THEN I REPLACED RADIATOR AND THE CAP.PROBLEM IS STILL THERE.
ONLY THING I HAVEN'T TOUCHED SO FAR IS THE THERMOSTAT BUT I REPLACED THE ENGINE REMEMBER
ANY IDEAS WOULD BE HIGHLY APPRECIATED AS I HAVE RUN OUT

Did you burp the cooling system? I mean really burp it....


Filling the cooling system is fine and dandy but it needs to be 100% air free.

It might be beneficial to know the year and engine (Phase 1 or Phase 2) and PLEASE DO NOT WRITE IN ALL CAPS!! It means you're shouting when you write in all caps FYI. Thank you.

Search for "coolant replacement". I did a thread on a sure-fire way to avoid air pockets.

Also, you might want to remove and flush your radiator.
