Need help on shop!!
Hey guys,
My car just overheated...coolant all over the place. Replaced my coolant and still it overheats. I need to shop to take it to somewhere in Seattle. Any recommendation?
I been going to outback but they are closed on monday :(
Thanks you guys.

I'm assuming your thermostat is done. Try replacing that first (two bolts and drain coolant), its easy.

If you don't want to do that, any shop can replace your thermostat because it is super easy.

I didn't think about the thermostat. I'll try that. Thanks a lot man.

I have always had good luck with Pacific Rim Auto on Stone way:

They have been doing the maintenance on all my vehicles for almost 5 years.

Thanks. Ill give them a call. replaced thermostat still the same. Over heating. Most likely dumb radiator now.

Try R&H Garage. They've always been quick for any I need done (like my new engine last year). Give Hunter a call. (206) 782-7809.

Smart Service Subaru nearest location is Shoreline if you're still looking about. Wouldn't hurt to pick their brain either if your radiator fix doesn't solve the issue.

Who says options are a bad thing! He asked, we delivered.

@OP -- Find a shop to do a leakdown test, just to be sure you don't have a blown HG. I hope for your sake, you don't. :/ (Unless you also wanna join the rebuild crew, yay!)
