Sti type r 1999

Hi my type r scooby is needing the water topping up every day but has no sign of leakes the heaters work fine no creamy oil but there is a slight wine noise coming from under the bonnet when the car is stopped after being driven even if its turned off no sure if it does whilst being driven i cant hear it, the car drives fine with no problems starting but when stood still engine temp rises after being stood for over a couple of mins the fan kicks in but still rises slightly until driven then obviously the air cools the car i have a front mount intercooler if that makes any difference
Any ideas

Re: Sti type r 1999

def needs lookign at mate, heat is a killer to the impreza engine. Could be a dodgy thermostat or somethign else, sounds like you need to get a specialist to look at it to trace the problem.
