So I have a 2002 WRX wagon with 96,000 miles. It has an after market intake and exhaust which was installed by the previous owner. I don’t believe it has any other modifications.
I had a slow coolant leak begin around 90,000-92,000 miles. I had the radiator replaced at about 94,000 miles and it leaked again around 96,000. The radiator got replaced under its warranty and once again, no more than 500 miles later, it’s leaking again.
The thermostat was replaced around 85,000 miles.
I don’t think it would matter but the replacement radiators have not been OEM. Other than these cooling system headaches, the car is running exceptionally well.
Any idea what is causing this?
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
