2001 jaguar xj8 hot air not working cold air perfect


Check your heater core for leaks. Do you smell any antifreeze? If so, good sign of heatercore failure. IF air is blowing good, then heater/air blower motor is fine.

Overheating


Your overheating problems can have several possible causes.
1) Airlock in heating system - solution - bleed air from cooling system.
2) Radiator blocked - solution - drain and flush radiator
3) Failed waterpump - solution - fit new waterpump
4) Engine thermostat stuck in closed position - solution - fit new thermostat
5) Electric cooling fan (if fitted) failing to operate - solution - check fan, fan operating switch, all wiring and connectors
6) Not enough coolant in system - solution - check and top up to required level. Also check all hoses for sign of leakage.
7) Faulty temperature gauge giving incorrect reading.
