Question about 2006 Jaguar X-Type 2.0
I have changed the water thermostat and water censer, but the temp-richer gauge stays in the blue position till i run at 300 revs. then it will rise to the quarter mark on the gauge, when i ease of the accelerator it returns to cold on the gauge.
The first thing to check is to feel if the radiator is hot, if the radiator feels hot and the engine is also hot the coolant is circulating ok then the problem is more than likely electrical, the temp gauge gets its signal from the engine control module the coolant temp sensor sends coolant temp signal to engine control module for engine managment purposes then passes it to instument pack/gauge, if the sensor was at fault you would have engine running problems also,with poss fault codes logged, if the engine and rad are cold/only warm after the engine has been run for 15 mins or so it sounds like the thermostat is stuck open but you have changed that. i have had faulty new ones in the past and have had to test them in a pan of boiling water, hope this is some help to you.
