Question about 2000 Jaguar S-Type
My temp guage never goes above the 1/2 way mark, yet my cooloing fans come on all the time even after driving it only 15 minutes. Yesterday( after a year at least with no problems) my guage pegged out and the overheat light came on. My heater also does not blow hot air, and its been like that for about a year.are these related? and can it be a bad thermostat? I find it odd that after my car says its overheated, the needle shows an ok temp in as little as 5 minutes after I turn off the engine. If it were really thaT HOT IT WOULDNT COOL DOWN THAT QUICK WOULD IT? could my thermostat be intermitantly stuck? would that cause both problems?
can some one tell me how to change my thermostat, if this could be the problem?
Had the exact problem. Turned out that it was the thermostat that needed replacing, relatively cheap and quick by mobile mechanic. Things were fine for a year and the second time it happened I assumed it was the same problem. However, this time the thermostat was fine, wasn't sticking, and I had a slow leak in radiator, losing colant and causing engine to overheat, which paradoxically had stopped the heater working as well. Had to get new hose also by local mobile mechanic and everything seems okay again except for the intermittent "stuck in park" problem that a lot of people are also experiencing.

Hello ,yes the thermastat can be bad and only sticking every now and then , next you have a coolant temperature sesor /switch and a engine temp sensor and a radiator cooling fan temp sensor / switch hope this helped god bless

I have a 2002 jaguar X type. For some reason, the temperature gauge in the dash now periodically shows hot to the max.. all the way over. But the car is not overheated. What can that be? It's really scary. I work at night. Get off at 3am. DO NOT want to be stuck by the side of the road. Anyone familiar with this? Had a new radiator put in back in April. Don't know if that's related. This problem started about 3 days ago. But last night, on my way from work, it kept showing completely overheated, but it wasn't. Sure would like to fix this... myself if possible. Appreciate any help. Thanks
