  1. Coolant Leak - How do I get to it?

    General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    2005 WRX - Just replaced the radiator, which had a nice big crack on top, only to still have the same sickly sweet smell. Pressure tested it and found it to be a pinhole leak on the left side of the engine in a rubber hose. This hose is next to the exhaust manifold. I have no clue what it goes...

  4. Aftermarket gauges

    Everyday Impreza Talk
    I found information for my fuel press, oil press gauge, but I havnt found any info on installing a coolant pressure sensor.

  5. Fluctuating Coolant Temp

    General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    I just recently purchased a 2005 STi and have noticed fluctuating water temps. Checked coolant levels and topped off, fixed minor leak, burped the system, new radiator caps and still have issues. The odd thing is that if the car is started from cold, allowed to sit for 20mins it gets up to...
  6. White Smoke....Headgasket?

    General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    Howdy y'all! I'm new here, but not new to Impreza's. I'm the original owner of a 2002 WRX grocery getter! She's 60,000 miles young! :tongue: Within the past 5,000 miles I've begun the process of modifying her. Currently she runs tasty M1 TDT 5W-40 as of the last oil change, but unfortunately...

  10. No Start HELP!

    General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    I have a 2002 WRX 99,000 miles with a VF39-pinks swap and I was driving it around with the Cobb map for a few days with no problems. I went to get my car tuned and it was only putting out 189whp and both me and the tuner knew something was wrong so we stopped. We thought it was a boost leak and...
