Asked by Apr 01, 2015 at 10:15 AM about the 2001 Subaru Outback Limited Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2001 Subaru Outback wagon windows where fogging up for about a week.....That
stopped then a few weeks later car is running hot...Had head gaskets, water pump, belt,
therosate all replaced last year....My mechanic can't find anything that looks like a head
gasket problem again....No loss of compression, no white smoke, no anti freeze mixing
with oil, no leaks of any fluid....Decided to chance replacing water pump and belt and
therosate and cap again and it's still running hot....Everything checked out even radiator
is looking good....What else could make it run hot???????? My mechanic is puzzled

Air in the system. Have to get an air bleed kit from the auto store. As for the windows fogging up, put your air circulation on FRESH. You have it on RECIRCULATE. When you have in on recirculate, your heating system is taking the air from inside the car. When the heat evaporates the water from the floor mats, it just sticks it to the windows. Kind of like your shower. The steam just sticks to your mirror without any fresh air entering he bathroom.
