Answers to common Subaru Forester questions

Q: Coolant leaking from somewhere. No clue where from.
Answered by Tim
Hello. Locating a coolant leak can be a challenge. The coolant system operates under a low pressure. When you need to locate a leak, you must create that pressure. There is a tool called a coolant pressure tester that can...
Q: Jerking motions during turns and minor jerks or surges at highway speed
Answered by Jay
You should first make sure all 4 tires are of the same size and brand of tire with similar amount of wear (https://www.yourmechanic.com/article/how-to-check-if-your-tires-are-in-good-condition). Tires that are different sizes or amount of wear will turn at a different rates and can...
Q: Do I have to "burp" my radiator?
Answered by Jay
No you do not. You should make sure the overfill expansion tank is filled to the full line when engine is cold. Use 50/50 coolant mix.
Q: hi tim, car leaking antifreeze when it get warm up and the mechanics cant tell from wear. it makes a stream.
Answered by Tim
Hi Kelley. In most cases when coolant leaks while you're driving, it's being forced out either of a coolant line with a tiny hole or a connection, due to pressure building up inside the coolant system. Most professional mechanics would...

Trusted by thousands of happy car owners



Kevin showed up ready to do his job and did just that. He showed me a couple important things on my vehicle I had overlooked and was nothing less than incredibly professional, knowledgeable, and informative. I would, without hesitation recommend him to anyone I know and would gladly use him again.



Stephen was very professional and spoke to me in terms that I understood. Although the news about the car was not great, he explained the why's and what it would take to fix it. I will call on him again. Many thanks!



I have to be honest, this was the first time that, I have EVER felt 'at-ease' around an auto mechanic. Jonas was thorough and straight forward with me about the issues; gave me a quote directly after doing the diagnostics on the car and, as it turned out, it cost me less than the original estimate. When does that ever happen with auto repairs ?? He was friendly, informative and knowledgeable. You folks made the whole experience convenient and painless. I'm "sold" on the "Your Mechanic" concept. I'll probably never take my car again to a traditional mechanic !! Jonas was a pleasure to deal with !
