Question about 2001 Jaguar XJ8
Need locate radiator cap to check fluid
Your overheating problems can have several possible causes.
1) Airlock in heating system - solution - bleed air from cooling system. Method is dependent on make/model of vehicle
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

I have a 2001 S-type. the temp guage will peg to hot very quickly and then will return to normal within a couple of minutes after stopping. The A/C is off. I have checked fluid level which is fine, and no signs of a water leak. My question is since the needle will peg very quickly could this be a thermostat. I am currently 120 miles from a competent garage. It is the 4.0 model
