hello, I posted days ago about how my wrx(2002) was seeing around 205-207 degrees while sitting for alittle but not going back down on the accessport coolant temp gauge.
while driving the car is around 194-198.
I live in texas and I wanted to know what the issue could be while the car isn't cooling at idle(t-stat, radiator cap, or something worse)
The picture is to show the coolant line and is not my car, but I have noticed that the line on the picture where the line is coming off of the coolant cap and that goes to the overflow tank and normal temps it doesn't seem to be pressurized and I can squeeze it no prob. The other lines aren't like this so I was just wondering if that could be the culprit?
also I noticed the cap in the pic on the coolant reservoir isn't getting hot like it use to as well but everything else is still hot(radiator, hoses and such) any help would be great thanks
