94 loyale overheats

Asked by Jan 14, 2011 at 12:05 AM about the 1994 Subaru Legacy 4 Dr L Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

after it heats up it starts gettng towards the red on the gauge. If I turn on the hearer full it comes down a little but stays hot. When I go up a hill it really starts getting hot.
Any help on a fix would be great, thanks.

either your cooling system has a problem so try a radiator flush, maybe a bad thermostat, your electric fans could have stoped working, or it could be the water pump.

Check your radiator temp threw out went warm. Radiator most likely plugged
