yeah Im positive on the code, it says EJ20 on the engine, I'll take a pic...i have a receipt for the engine, but get this, the invoice for the engine is from mrengine.net, which I have heard and read they are or were a bunch of cowboys, supplying engines that were blowing gaskets after only 6 months....tried calling the number on the invoice, no luck, and the website is no longer running....seems a bit iffy to me aye ???

Re: Overheating Problem WRX STI

Hi all, i am new to this site and i am after some advice please.

I have 97 version 4 sti which i have imported at the start of the year, i have always had a problem of when driven quite hard the th hot air from the heaters dissapears. It returns but only after a while, my friend told me that it would probably be a faulty thermostat.

On sat i replaced the thermostat, only to see that when i removed the stat housing there wasnt a thermostat in there, i put the new stat in and bled the car up. After about 5 mins driving them temp started rising to the top. I eventually got home after stopping and allowing the car to cool down. I removed the thermostat later that night and tested it, the thermostat was solid not moing in or out in boiling and cold water. I have built the stat housing back up as it was before but obviously it is back to how it was.

I have no leaks, no water in oil. All i want is warm air constantly in the cabin, if the stat is missing will the air temp go up and down through the heaters and will a new working stat solve this problem. Also i have read about the top and bottom hoses is the top hose meant to be hot and the bottom cool?


Thanks for your time regards
