turn the car off a minute and start back up light goes out no major problem just curious

the car has been siting for a while- the battery when boosted lights come on..but the starter just clicks...

I was driving home a month ago and noticed my power was cutting out and it would die and I had to jump so I found out the alternator was bad. I havnt had the money to get it fixed until now so I figured if I charged the battery it would still at leist start but when I turn the the key to start it makes a sound like the starter is engaging on the flywheel and it turns all the pullies in front of the block but only like a quarter of an inch and that's it. does anybody have any sort of diagnosis for this?

Codes said I need a new coolant temp. sensor. I have the part

I have a 1999 Jaguar xj8. it runs perfectly with no loss of power or indication of engine problems. However every few weeks I am having to top up the coolant with coolant low indications. I cannot see a leak, could this be indicative of a bigger problem? I am worried to take it somewhere to be told (wrongly) that it is a bigger problem than it is. Conversely is it likely to be the sign of a bigger problem. She does seem to smoke a lot, although weather is cold these days. Sometimes when I leave the car I smell something that I can best describe a sulphurous. Is it all going pear shaped?

Recently, I tried to fill the gas tank which was almost empty. About one minute into the process of filling...gasoline began to spew out from the filler hole.
Same thing happened yesterday when I was only able to put 6 gallons into the tank...which began spewing gas again. It appears that something is inside the tank. Any ideas? The fuel gauge needle is registering about that amount.

turn over greatly,but being told i need engine because saw scrapping at bottom of engine by using some type of camera.

Engine turns off when driving at 70 mph. Came off gas pedal and stepped back on when engine didn't respond and turned off. Happened twice approximately 2 months apart. No indicator lights turned on. No indication of any malfunction prior to the actual happening.

Car immediately restarts after pulling to the side of the road and turning ignition key to on.

The car did not come with an audio or navigation system users manual. Does anyone have these manuals or know where I can get them?
