Just aquired a a 2003 Legacy Outback wagon Limited, 2.5 with automatic. I have 111000 miles on it and just had the head gaskets done. Now when she's on the interstae she overheats but not on the back roads. Any thoughts what might be causing it?

 

She didn't overheat before she went into have the headgaskets replaced.

I hope you used a genuine Subaru gasket. I don't know if that's the issue, but apparently, there's a lot that could have gone wrong.

If it's only overheating on the interstate but not on backroads/stop and go, then it's most likely just a clogged radiator. Definitely tell your mechanic though.

Actually makes sense for it to be a air bubble because when you rev up every so often it can still pull coolant, but the pump spinning at a constant rate would have more issues with air bubbles.
