Gc8 wrx problem..
Wondering if there's anyone over here that can help me with a strange problem I'm having..
I bought a 95 wrx and since buying I've had coolant beneath the expansion tank after driving sometimes, it's not alot like not enough to run down onto the floor etc. So I've been running a few tests on it..
Took for hard drive with pipe out of hood, no coolant shoots out.
Checked for bubbles in expansion tank, on 2 occasions with heater on full cold I've had slight bubbles and I mean slight for a really short time, like almost nothing.
I've tried to bleed the system but just before fan kicks in, there is a few bubbles in the header tank, then fan kicks in and coolant level goes down. Then does the same over again and again. Doesn't seem to bleed.
I did fill the expansion tank a little too much, so wasn't sure if it was just pushing out the excess water but then I wouldn't have thought the level will change that much to push coolant out.
So I haven't actually seen the coolant spray out the over flow pipe on the expansion tank. It doesn't seem to be coming out under any massive force, but still, annoying puddle by battery almost every drive.
If anyone could help with this I'd be super happy.
