Hi,
Taking a shot at this, I'd replace the thermostat. If it is partially open at idle it would allow enough coolant to pass through, but at higher revs, that slight allowance may not be enough to keep the engine cool.
It's inexpensive and easy enough to replace.
I hope this helps... Good luck!

Hi Richard, I'm not an expert on Jags, just a little jealous I don't have one. Looks like a very nice vehicle. Have a close look, inspecting all hoses and vacuum pipes on the intake manifold side of the engine for any damage or loose fitting. The problem seems to be a leakage of air which is raising the idle speed. Regards John

Temp gauge goes to full hot while at Idle


Check the auxiliary cooling fan for operation. As the engine temp rises, it should kick on to bring the temp down. U may have a bad motor on the fan, or more likely a bad fan switch.
