    Having overheating issues Help!

    Yea drove my 03 wrx to work today and noticed it was getting hot but I was at low speed. Then leaving work it held its usual temp for a bit but then rose and got close to the red I then hit a 45mph stretch and it stayed hot momentarily before droping to its usual temp really quick. Gonna wait for it to cool before i check fluid levels color and what not. Any help would be much apreciated was hoping to hit the 1/2 mile in couple months hope this dosn't set me back.

    Either the thermostat has failed or you have an air bubble in the system. The air bubble usually occurs when you flush the coolant system. Did you mean 1/4 mile?
