m plate jap import wrx overheating

hi all ....just lately my wrx is overheatin on acceleration mainly... when cruising the temp seems to drop to middle temp... the fan is working but i think the air scoop is keeping it cool.... i have checked the fluids and it doesnt seem to leak....but the pipe commin from the bottom of the rad is sponggy like the top hose and i was told it should be firm .... could i just have an air lock some where>? either reply on here or send me an email to dutt05@msn.com any other info needed to cure this prob just ask and ill check and feed info back... as you can tell not too knowlegable on cars... just know how to kill em ;p

Re: m plate jap import wrx overheating

sounds to me your thermostat is faulty, if its been ok for a while then dont think it will be an airlock, mines been overheating recently but found out its the headgasket!!! you could also check radiator cap, make sure its working properly, does heating work inside car and is your radiator hot after running?
