QUESTION:
Boots: I have a 2011 Subaru Legacy I bought used with approx.62,000 miles in 2014. It now has approx. 106,000 miles with cooling system problems and a new radiator, water pump, thermostat. My mechanic thinks the engine block may be cracked ( damaged) as it was driven home when all the lights on the dash went off...flashing brake lights, engine light on, oil light, ect. This all started in Nov. when all the coolant sprayed out all over the engine and the above parts had to be replaced ( pump and hose). Lost coolant again this month and drove it home with lights going off again. Hence, the new radiator, etc.Back to mechanic on a flat bed tow truck. Now, the cooling system is going haywire and engine block crack or damage is suspected. Have upt in some coin in new tires, lights, etc. this year and love the car but afraid of what comes next. Mechanic looking into new Subaru engine, rebuilt or otherwise. Are there any good alternatives or should I sell it ( if possible since it can't be driven as is,), put in new engine or look at another used car???Help!!! Is a used engine for this car a good option??? Thank you for your wisdom....Debbi, Columbus -Debbi , Columbus
