Hi! Only one thing can cause this. The coolant reservoir is not sitting on the right level. The coolant should be filled and sit only on the max or full level. If its above the right level it tends to overflow. HOpe this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

2000 9-5 wagon 2.3L turbo. trouble light comes on and engine temp gauge goes high after about 5 miles of driving (winter with heat on). coolant level full; overflow tank backing up. could it be stuck...


For the amount of money it will cost it would be worth changing the thermostat anyway. They aren't very expensive and reasonably easy to repair.
Water pump replacements are more expensive AND more work. Try the cheaper one first as thermostats are known to wear out.
If the overflow tank is backing up it will be because the safety valve built into the water pump is diverting built up pressure.

1999 Hyndai Accent 1500 cc high cooling water temp.


over heating while stopped usually indicates that the radiator fan is not coming on ...when the engine is running hot you should be able to hear the fan running .. if it doesnt then suspect the thermal switch mounted on the radiator .. make sure the fan turns freely .. the fan is not needed when the car is moving so it wont heat up as long as you are driving .. but will do so when stopped if thats the trouble .. sometimes the thermal switch operates a relay that in turn operates the fan ..that could also cause the trouble ..

Just planing to buy a XJ8 1999 brand of Jaguar and want to be sure it's a good car in terms of general maintenance and gas consumption in particular


1998 to 2001 Jaguar XJ8 have a big engine design problem, timing chain tensioners are made out of plastic, and with time they brake ,causing big Damage to Engine, if you buy the car make sure those tensioners are replaced to a next generation tensioners wich are way better(made with some metal) as per gas consuption, about 16 miles per gallon in the city and 22 in the highway.

Very noisy squeky fron suspension on jaguar xj8


You might need a lube job or you may need to see if noise is coming from another place such as your engine water pump, brakes, power steering. Look for leaks.

I have a 1999 Jaguar XJ8, there is a Check Engine


the gas gauge is not related, that would be a defective gas gauge sending unit in the gas tank, the check engine light indicates that one of around 200 poss faults has occured in the electronic engine controls, you will need to have the OBD 2 engine control system tested for the fualt code that is stored when the light is turned on.

I've had the same problem on my 2001. It turned out to be the battery. Apparently the voltage had dropped to the point that the computer began to malfunction. I'd first go to a battery shop and have it checked under load before looking for other solutions.
