2000 Jaguar S Type overheating

When my car is stopped it overheats almost to the red area. However when I start driving the needle goes back to the normal area. When I park the car, the fan runs for about 15 minutes before shutting off.

    When i turn a certain way the tempature gage goes to hot then when i straighten out the gage goes back to normal. I put antifreeze in it last night but it really ran hot this morning where smoke or steam was coming from the hood, the rear of the car and into the car.

I am Not too clear on fault from your infor.
1 - do you lose water?
2 - does your heater still work?
its possible that you may have an air lock in your system, that will cause problems on low revs/idling. Check water pump for noises/leaks and is the thermostat okay.
Be very carefull probing around hot hose's as they can burst upon being disturbed.
hope this helps

My jaguar s type 2001 v8 4.0 is over heating could this be a sticky thermostat? It is overheats for about 1 minute and then it goes back to normal this only happen every once in awhile.

the 2000 s type 4.0 has a return flo head cooler line under the intake that is not visible. this line is attached to the back of the thermostat and runs to the back of the head and a small leak is hard to detect. if you are adding coolant periodically then I would have this checked. if not, then I would replace the thermostat.

this sounds like you need to put more coolent in the car if the needles moving back and forth on turns maby its low on fluid. after changing the water pump you could have a air bubble in the system that has worked its way out and now needs more fluid. i hope this helps

Sounds like there could be an air pocket in your cooling system. If the job was done by a mechanic take it back. If a "friend" helped you, tell him to rebleed the system. Also seems like your water pump might be bad. If it was overheating before changing the thermostat and is still doing the problem only worse then I would assume the pump needs to be changed. If the pump is bad, there is no doubt that air is in the system still and causing the overheating to occur even faster.

Overheating? s type

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.
