    i have already had the thermostat replaced

    then you have a possible restriction in the cooling system if it has overheated since the thermostat change id change it again cause they are temp sensitive /possibly the radiator is stopped up a little/ enough that it wont over heat around town but on the hyway it cant flow like it should or when you had the thermostat replaced they actually didnt put one back in this would allow the radiator fluid to flow to quickly through the radiator and not cool down

After highway driving for 2 hours and stopping for gas the car would initially start and then stall, it would run again until the car cooled for 30 minutes.

Sounds like your coolant level might be low. At highway speed you probably have enough coolant and with the air passing thru the radiator keeps the temp down, but at idle not so much. Or depending whether you have a belt drive or electric fan. Belt driven, could need a new belt.

My 2000 Jaguar S-Type High Engine Temperature message comes on and the temperature gauge goes to maximum hot for about 45 seconds then goes back to normal within a few seconds. This happened about 4 times...

I assume the car drives okay the rest of the time at varying speeds and conditions?
It may be you have an air lock in the system (have you had work done or lost coolant?) or the sensor or its wiring is faulty.
Check the level of your coolant tank when the car is at full temp and idling - for safety - the tank is opaque you should be able to see the water level - do not open when hot !

Cracking noise while turning-is it supposed to be in 4h during normal highway driving

You can use fifth anytime you are going better than 45. Don't use it on steep hills or when you feel the engine laboring. If automatic, generally fourth gear shift is at about 2000 rpm and will stay engaged at 45. Cracking noise generally is dry ball joints (no fittings either) Lube the remainder of the front end components and if it continues that's likely where to look.

1999 Chrysler 300M overheating

I am having the same prob. on 04 300m 83,000 mi. I am a chrysler tech and another tech at my shop had the same problem a week ago. Mine started when i Was on the thruway my guage crept up to 3/4 so i kicked the heat on and it went normal. After stopping I found the water pump went and was leaking bad. I replaced the waterpump timing belt and tensioner pulley. thought it was good untill on a long trip. Noticed temp goin up no leaks this time, coolant full. doesnt overheat with heater on. Actuated fans with DRB3 and both work and are working when car says its overheating. Replaced thermostat and bleed system. thought it was ok untill drove 35mi. suspecting bad wiring plugged radiator or coolant temp sensor. Still driving with heat on low to keep from overheating. any others fix this problem yet?
