what was done first and why? did it overheat before? could be you started with one problem corrected that and ran into another one in the process, like air bubble in the cooling system. hope it's that simple.

Has anyone checked to make sure the electric cooling fans are operating and operating properly?
Yep. I did and mechanic did also, operating like they are suppose to.

is it loosing coolant? that would indicate to me it's what i just mentioned. if it's not loosing coolant i'd suspect the system isn't working properly.

I have a 1999 Legacy 2.2 with 72,000 miles that runs hot. Radiator-thermostat-water pump has all been replaced. New head gaskets and the heads have been pulled twice and have been reworked and double checked. After repairs engine ran fine for first 50-100 miles and then started to run hot. Fluid does not circulate through bottom hose when this happens. Temp. gage moves to H mark and moves 2 notches up or down on the open road while driving. It now runs hot by the time thermostat has time to open. My mechanic has tried everything-I am about to give up-over $1800.00 for repairs and still runs hot. Under warranty by mechanic for work he has done. We can find no leaks of any kind. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Well-to bring this up to-date-Mechanic tore block down and found a couple of pistons that will have to be replaced along with other problems. He has quoted me a price of $2500.00 complete for labor and parts, etc. to rebuild and machine shop service included.
Is this a decent price for Georgia area??

Dang for that price you could probably get a CCR (Colorodo Component Rebuilders) engine and just have it put in (seeing as how the mechanic has the engine out already). Definitely check the radiator for obstructions too.
CHECK CCR OR GOOD USED AT CAR-PART.COM.
