    Hello,

    Few days ago we made cooling system test for our Subaru Legacy Outback
    1998. During the test the color of the coolant changed. The garag
    master told us that such test results shows that cooling system is no
    hermetic and the coolant gets into the engine system. He suspects tha
    the intermediate gum might be broken and even it could affect the head



    Maybe anybody has also faced this problem - I would be very thankful i
    you
    could share your experiences with interpretation of cooling system tes
    results and the possible salvations of the problem.

    Thanks in advance

    I believe the common term is "blown head gasket".
    Worldwide, Subaru is recommending a "conditioner" that seems to be
    a fairly common stop-leak product for some cars with known cooling
    system problems.
