I took it to a mechanic he said replace thermostat. So I did that. Then he said replace radiator, so I did that. So I then took it to another mechanic he said to replace the water pump, so I did that, now he is telling me I need to replace the fan assembly and it will stop overheating. I dont know what to do anymore and I have already put more than I can afford to fix this issue. Any help????

    hard to say. you are fixing it yourself with suggestions from mechanics. you need a real shop with real techs to properly diag the car correctly and not guess what the issue is.

    No I had a mechanic fixing the thermostat and the radiator, when the issue wasnt fixed I took it to another mechanic and he put on the water pump, but know is saying that because the fan isnt running or turning on anymore I need a new fan assembly. It not overheating now, the issue is the fan is not running anymore. Do you know what the issue is?????

    the fan could be bad. you tech can verify that with testing. it would mak it run hot at idle and in stop and go traffic if it is electric. if it is belt driven, the viscus clutch could be bad with the same issues.
    are the guys working on it familiar with your car??

    Do yourself a favor and take the car to someone who is experianced with Jag's. you will save more money in the end by doing this. You have air in your cooling system that needs to be blead properly. Their is a lot of components that work in conjunction with the cooling system and they all have to be in working order for the engine not to over heat. Let me ask you this, do you have heat in the car? Is your climit control valve working properly? Is the upper hose have a working bleeder valve on it. is the expension tank in good condition with out any cracks in it. Is your expasion bleeder good? Are you useing the correct coolent. Good luck!
