Default water liquid leaking sound when driving or accelerating.

hi, i heard a water or liquid leaking noise when i drive the car, it sounded like it in the engine bay. when i am sitting inside, it seems like its coming out from the area behind the gas gauge or the gas pedal, my car was overheat before after they replace the radiator, and head gasket and some belts and aftermarket thermostat. the noise seems reduce, but i can still hear it when i accelerate relatively hard. i am wonder what may that be and has anyone had that problem happen to them before.

Replace your thermostat with an OEM one. The water dribbling sound is air bubbles in your heater core and will expedite another head gasket failure due to poor coolant flow.

Other than your local dealership, any one of thousands of online parts stores will have them. Rallysportdirect.com seems to have good prices on a lot of parts. Go to google and search for OEM subaru parts.

You can also get an xactstat made by stant. Just google "(Year and model) xactstat."

Thermostats & radiator caps are about the only "wear & tear" items I only use OEM.
