comment problem with overheating and heater core in 1998 Subaru Forester
My mechanic did leak detection tests and said there were no leaks. As I only see this issue when the system is under load, I'd have to say that this method would only detect issues while the car is moving.

not yet. I'm just about to go out and get some Head gasket and cooling sealant to see if that might do some good. It also has warmed up today, so wondering if that might change things.. barsproducts.com/catalog/view/…

The thermostat and radiator cap was replaced. No changes

I guess its worth it to note that this started happening after a cold snap started here. I have been reading that cold weather can cause problems with the head gasket

no new behaviors have manifested. It presents the same now as it did before. (in my description above)

would it be a good idea for me to buy head gasket sealant as a precaution? (as in.. will it ruin an engine that is not leaking?) barsproducts.com/catalog/view/…

It would make sense why it would not happen while the car is in park. There is a difference when the engine is under load, for one, it heats up more. (my reason for driving in L3).
