I noticed some coolant under my jaguar s type so I took it to the shop and they replaced the water pump, thermostat, thermostat housing and belt. Now when I first start driving it when it is cool (sitting overnight) it overheats within a couple of blocks but if I start it and let it idle until the temperature guage gets warm (right in the middle) then drive it, it's does fine. The shop that repaired it said they have never seen anything like this before and have no idea what's wrong with it.
It happens every morning especially if its cold out until engine is at operating temp. Engine light is on an codes say both banks are running below efficiency.
The car wouldn't get into gear so we changed the gearbox. After installation of the new gearbox, a Gearbox fault error came on the dashboard and it doesn't want to clear.
