Subaru outback vdc
Ok so car runs fine than Vdc light comes on
usually when going up hill and temp gage spikes.
What is it thermostat or head?? Please help
If you have white smoke coming from the tail pipe then its the head gasket. Yes you could have a bad thermostat, you could be low on fluid, a bad radiator cap or fan sensor may be bad not turning the cooling fans on...
Mandy- sure stability control or vehicle dynamic control is a different issue than overheating of course. You could drive without VDC , carefully, but, an overheated engine is a much more immediate problem. You may want to investigate the newly designed multi layered head gaskets if you need to replace the heads. I agree that it could possibly be any one of the issues described above. If you decide that you have a bad thermostat be sure that you get an original equipment Subaru thermostat for your car.
