comment what are the methodes to improve head lights of a car?
As the wire gets older, it corrodes. This reduces the cross-section of the wire (as some of the copper has turned into copper oxide), and so increases the resistance (resistance being proportional to length divided by cross section) - put simply, the wire is smaller so less electrons can fit through it!

comment Coolant spills out of the overflow tank at high pressure
I'd agree, it sounds like a Head Gasket failure - blowing from a combustion chamber into the coolant. The best way to tell would be a compressions test, but with a Subaru that's a lot more work than most cars!

Indeed - it sounds like worn seals on one or the other cylinder...

comment Removing a Viscous Fan without the serpentine belt (1998 Land Rover Discovery)
I've got a spanner (though they have gone up, it was nearer £15, I was expecting around £5), the problem was stopping the pulley from turning while undoing the nut.
