I have a 02 wrx and have had alot of issues with overheating the last couple of months. I have replaced the thermostat twice, flushed and refilled the system multiple times as well.
Right after I flush and refill the system I will take it out for a drive to see how everything works and it will work great untill the next day when i'll start driving and my temp guage will shoot up after 10 to 15 minutes of light driving. The air from my heater starts to get freezing cold, I also will start to hear the turbo start to spool ALOT louder and have a major loss of power, it will start to jerk a little, but i think that is because the td04 is water cooled and it is not getting any water to cool it? I got out to look at it after this happened the other day and there was a puddle of coolant under the car and a trail 100+ feet behind me. I tried looking to see where it was leaking from but could not pin point a specific location. I looked like it was all coming out from under the drivers side of the radiator by the overflow tank. This has happened 2 or 3 times this month. and i cant ever drive without it overheating.
I would like to get some input on what to do/what it could be/and the best way to go about it. Thanks in advance guys
