Hi
I am thrilled with the response and warm welcome.
I wonder if any one could help me.
I was driving my subaru that i bought last week normally when i saw smoke coming out from the engine.
But then i realised it was steam coming from engine and heater stopped working, ie. started giving out cold air instead of hot like before.
I suddenly stopped it and after 10 minutes just drove n took it to fuel station which was 100 yards and put some water in.
Now i gently put throttle down while standing out to see if smoke was coming from exhaust, but nothing.
I slowly drove back to home and on way steam started to come again with heater giving out ice cold air.
For past couple of days, every monring when starting on cold i used to hear squeeking noise from one of the belts in engine. I thought could be fan belt but no sure. Very common with cars, comes when cold in morning and when warmed it goes. So i didnt took it seriously.
So this evening when driving back with steam coming same noise again.

Temperature gauge in middle.

If the car was honda, i would have known the fault, but this is my first turbo charged car and i am very scared now.

Please any idea whats wrong.

I will appreciate.

Hi guys

Should the engine management light go away before the engine is turned on.

In mine, when I turn the ignition, light comes on but it only goes off once engine is started.

Thanks

yeah mate, if you have defi gauges they go mad at you cos of oil pressure is low when engines not running lol

as long as it goes out once running then its norm. will only stay on if there a problem.
