    Hey guys,
    My Subaru randomly heats up, it can heat up quickly no matter
    what speed im driving and then be fine for the next week or two. I
    have taken it to the dealer and they cannot duplicate the problem. I
    told them it was probably the thermostat sticking etc...but they claim
    it tests out fine. I think I am gonna replace it this weekend my self
    as the dealer seems retarded. The second time I brought it in, they
    called me an hour later saying there was nothing wrong even though you
    can see that coolant has boiled out of the overflow bottle. I change
    the oil every 3000 miles and check coolant etc.. and I cannot see any
    physical damage or leaks in the radiator. Also, there is no evidence
    of water in the oil or steam coming out of the exhaust from a blown
    head gasket. Also the car has 30k miles on it and I do not drive
    100mph everywhere with the air on. Any advice is appreciated!

  2. Just remove it and see what happens, I had the same problem, temp goes
    up and down, but everything checks out fine, it was the thermostat...
