I just got a pretty hooked up 02 WRX and have ran into a problem.
Tonight I was driving normal and smelled coolant and POOF - hood scoop turned into a chimney.
There was coolant all over the ground and a fresh coat ALL over the engine bay.
There is still pressure in the system so there doesn't seem to be anything that is about to fall off loose. The car took a lot of water as we tried to cycle it through by pumping the hose on the top of the radiator (woohoo for technical terms).
So if there is anyone that is in the St. Pete, Tampa area that knows the cooling part of these cars or just more than I do.
Or anyone that has some words of wisdom without spending $$$ to maybe test the system it would be SOOO much appreciated.
I'm good with cars in general, I've had DSM's and Civics and an SRT-4 right before this and I have tools and a compressor. But this is my first Suby and I'm a little lost. I would hate to get into it and not know what I'm doing (which I don't, lol)
I can get at least lunch for anyone that can come and help out if possible. I'll be up early.
My name is Chris and I'm in Old Northeast in St. Pete Florida. Help a newb out
Give me a shout in the morning if possible
or email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org
I know it's kind of a tall order considering I am so new to the forums but I would tell everyone how cool you are if you could help me out, lol. Seriously....
-Thanks ahead of time
