Re: newbie needs some help please

Its not the rad by any chance is it might be air in coolant system purge it might help ya

The radiator is of the pressurized type. Do not
attempt to open the radiator cap immediately
after the engine has been stopped.

1) Lift up the vehicle.
2) Remove the under cover.
3) Place a container under drain pipe.
4) Loosen and remove the drain plug to drain engine
coolant into the container.
5) For quick draining, open the radiator cap.
Be careful not to spill coolant on the floor.
6) Drain the coolant from reservoir tank.
7) Tighten the radiator drain screw securely after
draining coolant.
8) Slowly pour the prepared coolant from radiator
filler port to neck of filler, then pour into the reservoir
tank up to “FULL” level.
The SUBARU Genuine Coolant containing antifreeze
and anti-rust agents is especially made for
SUBARU engine, which has an aluminum crankcase.
Always use SUBARU Genuine Coolant,
since other coolant may cause corrosion.
9) Securely install the radiator cap.
10) Run engine for more than five minutes at 2,000
to 3,000 rpm. (Run engine until radiator becomes
hot in order to purge air trapped in cooling system.)
11) Stop the engine and wait until coolant temperature
lowers. Then open the radiator cap to check
coolant level and add coolant up to radiator filler
neck. Next, add coolant into reservoir tank up to
“FULL” level.
12) After adding coolant, securely the install radiator
and reservoir tank caps

Try the filling up of the coolant system this way had never any problems doing this way might help
