2002 Jaguar x-type runs hot and no loss of coolant. I can stop it check the coolant and it doesn't run hot anymore. 2nd time this has happened.

Next time it gets hot, stop at a garage and have them check it with a computer. Most will do this for free. Could be the coolant sensor going bad. this can cause the temp to go high( not really getting hot) or keep the cooling fans from coming on. when you stop there is less load on the engine letting it cool.

Hello, I am the owner of a 2005 jaguar x-type. Upon start up when driving away I notice a "gurgling" sound coming from the engine in the location of the glove box.

Sounds like air in cooling system. Coolant comes through to back of glove box area for your heat supply.
Have you noticed less available heat than normal?

Check the coolant level in radiator, not just the top up bottle. DO THIS WHEN ENGINE IS COLD as hot system is under pressure.

Possibility of head gasket leak suppling gases to coolant system. IF so may be producing some persistant heavy white steamy exhaust, though not necessarily.

Topping up coolant will (should) make noise go away at least temporarily. You should look to see if any obvious leaks or wet spots at hose clamps and heater hose connections.

When engine is cold, open Radiator cap, look down (flash light helps?) to see fluid level, should be full to top.
If not, top up with correct coolant mix, leaving cap off, start motor and allow to idle till warm. If level drops top off some more. Watch the fluid as it flows past cap opening. a few bubbles for a few mins may be normal, but continous stream of bubbles indicate head gasket leak. Turn on the heat in car to full, (not the fan, just heat level) gently rev the engine and top up fluid at same time, (2 people) replace cap. Done. If there are no apparent problems.

If noise returns or does not go away, you'll need a professional inspection.

The windows will fog up when the car is moving

Try to see if you smell coolant when it fogs up. You may have a slight leak in the heater core .

Sizzling Hot Sounds

Since you are not overheating, thermostat is likely not the problem. Chances are you have some seepage at either an intake or head gasket that is dripping onto a hot pipe when you stop. Leak may be so small at this point that coolant loss is barely noticable. but if you look carefully at all head/block parting lines and check all obvious connections that could leak, you will find the problem. Any white smoke from exhaust?

While driving last night my car noticed that a red light came on briefly and it displayed "Engine coolant is low." My question can I go to a non- Jaquar repair shop to replace/fill the coolant or must I go...

You Can go to a non jaguar automotive supply shop, But be carefull to put the right coolant in, there are two types of coolant lim green in color and red you will need the red type. Fill up to the stated level on the expansion bottle and your away.
Hope this helps

Water pump problem?

You need to make sure you don’t have an air lock. Find the bleeder valve for the coolant system and release the air. If you can’t find the bleeder, find the highest hose for the coolant system and make sure coolant is flowing through it.
