well, that being said...i have no heat and my engine is running really really cold. thought it was the thermostat so got a new one and put it in a few days ago. still no heat. i have no water leaking anywhere so i don't know if it's my heater core or what. maybe my wiring is screwed up and no power is getting to where it needs to be. who knows. but if any of you have a solution, please give it up cause i'm the only person i know who has to use the ice scraper on the INSIDE of the car.

1st - make sure your hoses are connected properly - the heater hoses can be spotted easily on the back firewall
2nd - check the coolent level/mixture if it has too much water or antifreeze in it - he may not have put enough antifreeze in it
3rd - check for air bubbles in the system - can be causing issues take radiator cap off and run until the thermostat opens and then start squeezing and releasing the top radiator hose. Bouncing up and down on the front end helps too.
4th - put an OEM Subaru thermostat in
That is all I can think of! Hope you find the problem!
Cougar - the engine is also running cold!

Check your upper and lower radiator hoses for warmth and report back.

regardless...it's almost spring so i won't really be needing my heat much anyway. since i've got to get the ac recharged i'll have them look at it then. it's nothing too serious since my car still runs allright.
if i get approved for the 189 lease on the imprezza i'm just gonna sell this baby.
