    Replace the radiator. Use authentic Subaru coolant. Use Subaru coolant conditioner. Then burp the system. Again and again.

    There is air in the system now, causing the overheating. I don't trust JB Weld on plastic at 1 bar and 100 degrees. Park the car.

    It could be many things, but eliminate the known problems first before creating others.

    You're missing the point. It's already been stated 3 times now.

    1. Replace the Radiator
    2. Fill with Subaru OEM Coolant and Coolant Conditioner
    3. BURP THE SYSTEM

    The car is overheating because there is air in the system. JB weld is not going to fix the problem. You will need to replace the Radiator.
