i worked for a jag franchise dealer and one off the issues with your vehicle was just what your are asking for help. the factory came out with a fix and it was to renew all the servo motors on the climate unit cos its got a dual system and the prob is the fascia vents then its the fascia vent servo motor has failed is the centre vent the same?

First change the belt driving the compressor. Belt slippage is the number one cause of low cooing at idle or slow speeds (if the charge is OK)

I would suggest changing the temperature sending unit on the engine.

Your Dynamic Stability Control and ABS are both critical safety system... Rather than TRYING to LIMP home...
Park BRAKE means focus on the REAR AXLE...!!

It might be Wiser to has a look at each wheel... and under the car to see if a ROAD-HAZARD has taken out speed sensor...
or a similar SAFETY SYSTEMS impairment...

Getting a FREE read from an AUTOZONE (were they're
very likely to try to peddle OXYGEN SENSORS...
(even if your wheel & tire are gone (in MY opinion))...
might be better WITH ALL THAT rather than trying
to LIMP home...

I personally purchase the FACTORY WORKSHOP
repair manuals (XJS: quite expensive)... but WORTH it.

Much cheaper than letting "DEALERS" mess...
things up ...
Be safe... (tow it home... part of that British Charm
(standing by the roadside waiting for a lorry)).

What I do is park the car uphill. Let it cool, open the cap, start it, and let it warm up until coolant flows in the radiator. Add coolant and let the air burp out until there is good flow with no bubbles coming up.

Disconnect your battery for 3 minutes. If it doesn't. You need a scanner.

you have done something very wrong obviously.
I suggest you get a pro auto electrician round to quote for repairs before you set fire to the car.

Use the .05. And if you didn't replace the plug wires there's a good chance that it separated it when you we're taking it off. You can replace the wires or get up ohmmeter and check the continuity of the wires

?????try to spell out the problem to make sense and you might get an answer

I have stopped those annoying squeaks by hosing down every rubber bushing I could find using silicone spray.
Way cheaper than having the bushings replaced, unless the bushings are chunked out and dry, then maybe they need replacing.
