Default Coolant Flow EJ25

So, the EJ25 from my '99 Forester, the water pump pulls from the top of the block and pushes it out the bottom? Seems backwards, buit the thermostat is on the bottom, so I can't figure out how else it could work. Just curious...

You have it backwards.

This scan is for the first gen legacies, but the flow setup is the same

So, that would mean the thermostat goes in spring up. I think I put it in that way.

Correct, spring up. It will only fit in that way. This is assuming you replaced it with an OEM part. I will say that if you didn't, you're going to have weird engine temp issues, and that I highly recommend you go back and put in an OEM thermostat.

I had a couple instances where it all of the sudden got hot like I had an air pocket or something. That is why I was wondering.

I did replace the thermostat, but I used the "better" OEM one from the parts store. Nothing special.

Many after market stats that fit do not have a large enought ventura opening and will cause overheating during high loads.

replace it with a subaru thermostat.

Do you remember if the two t-stats looked identical?
