    We have a 2002 Subaru with 46,000 miles and have an overheating problem.
    We filled up the coolant as it was low, but it still is overheating. Does
    anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.

    The obvious question is where is the coolant going? If its leaking from
    something then you have your obvious cause. However, as most Subie
    owners are, you are more intelligent than that. I would off-handly
    guess that your head gasket is blown. Luckily for you it is covered by
    the 60k warranty and by a possible recall.

    From: "Deno"
    Ever think of taking it to the dealer or another qualified service center, and
    have them check it out? I wouldn't delay too long, as overheating can be quite
    problematic with an aluminum engine. The fact you are losing coolant, but don't
    mention a leak indicates you might have a blown gasket. Check your oil. If it
    looks cloudy or milky, get it to a service center right away.

    Here's an idea: Take your car to a subaru dealer. Anything wrong
    will be covered by the warranty. Zero from your pocket. There are
    only 135 things that can cause this so it is hard to diagnose via
