1996 Subaru Legacy Question: Overheating

I am overheating. I have put in water and it still overheats. I see no water pour out when I add water. Is this the themostat or possibly a sensor? -

Start with the easy and cheap things and replace the thermostat. Make sure it is a genuine Subaru part from your dealer however, that is very important. Next consider maybe a radiator that is plugged, or possibly your water pump. Start with the easiest parts then gradually move up and diagnose it. -
