Question about 2001 Jaguar S-Type
The gauge goes up to 3/4 then cools off then red lines and back to the middle. Water pomp going maybe?
Sounds like pump but may have air lock as you had the hose issue bleed the cooling system as per the workshop manual and see if that helps as a first step

Did you run out of coolant? If so you may have an airlock. refill with the top hoses on the engine disconnected to allow water to flow right through the system to its highest point. Hope this helps - good luck.

Next time it gets hot, stop at a garage and have them check it with a computer. Most will do this for free. Could be the coolant sensor going bad. this can cause the temp to go high( not really getting hot) or keep the cooling fans from coming on. when you stop there is less load on the engine letting it cool.

Torque, also called moment or moment of force is the tendency of aforce to rotate an object about an axis, fulcrum, or pivot. Just as a force is a push or a pull, a torque can be thought of as a twist.
Loosely speaking, torque is a measure of the turning force on an object such as a bolt or a flywheel. For example, pushing or pulling the handle of a wrench connected to a nut or bolt produces a torque (turning force) that loosens or tightens the nut or bolt.
Vacuum leaks in manifold means u got a broken VACUUM hose that helps your HYDRAVAC to boost ur BRAKiNG power! Just look at ur BRAKE MASTER and u will see at the rear, there is this BiG ROUND drum, hose/pipe is attached to it, follow that hose/pipe it will lead u to the iNTAKE MANiFOLD, where air/fuel was being sucked by the ENGINE PiSTON!

The heater hoses and those little bypass hoses in the cooling system tend to go hard and split if they are close to 10 years old, allowing coolant loss. Check all the hoses in the engine bay especially where they attach to the pipes around the engine for loose clamps or splits. Replace any hoses and clamps that are have gone hard, split, leaking or not sealing ptoperly.Those spring type hose clamps tend to be less effective in clamping as the hoses become hard. Worm drive ones are the best to use.
