I had just bought (2 days ago) a used 98 Forrester for $800.00. Thought it was a good deal but now I am worried that I bought a money pit. First the rpms will not rev above 4500 rpms. If I try, no luck just eng stuttering. Went to oreilys and had it scanned. Only xcode was for the speed control sensor. Ordered one. During my drive home, I noticed that my coolant temp gauge hadn't moved one bit. So upon arriving home, I checked the water level, it was low so I added somwe more 50/50.let the car run for a while in the driveway, I started to get a littlwe chilly and turned on the heater. The air was not even warm alth ough the car had been running for approx 45 min. Any ideas what it can be? The people I purchased the car from stated they had overheating problems, changed the thermostat and that corrected the overheating issue.
Thanks in advance folks.
