Well I was driving today in my stage 2 02 rex and my radiator blew the top hose.... you can obviously see where the colant was literally blowing out of the top hose... So there is no subaru dealership, so i took it to my "friends" dealership (Honda) and they tell me the radiator is completly blown and i need a new one... (what a surprise)
After doing some searching on here i see that we have plastic caps that seem to blow inside the actual hose, and i really think it cracked... b/c i was smelled faint fluid smells a couple days before... but I am obviously going to get a second opinion, but i want to know if i am okay to drive if i baby it, just a couple of miles here or there, going from mechanic to mechanic???? because the car only started over heating when i lost some fluid from the top... So i am going to fill it all the way up and I was wondering if someone can tell me if i drive from a cold start if i will hurt my engine just driving it no more than 5 miles at a time??? Thanks for the quick response in advance guys!
