I need a reliable and knowledgable Subie mechanic. I spent $1700 last week on a job that did not solve my overheating problem.

describe your problems, we can probably help you a lot here.

first thing to be aware of - EJ engines (you never mention your car, but that's probably what you have) are notorious for getting air bubbles. happens all the time.

air needs to be bled through the bleeder screw on the top passengers side or radiator. loosen screw, add coolant until it comes out, tighten screw, then continue filling. best for the nose of the car to as high as possible.

check and refill coolant in radiator cap after driving (and letting cool down) a couple times.

that will get rid of your air bubbles.
