added fluid to reservoir , it helped but now worse

Car sat along time I put in a new fuel pump and next a line filter I checked the fuel pressure seems fine can't Rev up engine cause of bogging at 2 the rpm or around that

Fail safe mode light came on car would not start

My gear box fault light came on and seem like the transmission is going out

Have disconnected battery to reset; was told to use key to lock & unlock door 2 times...nothing works. No engines sounds at all.

Sometimes when I am slowing to and still creeping to a full stop I will hear a clunking noise and then the car will come to a sudden stop. When it's time to move on and I increase engine rpm to go, nothing happens. I must increase over 1k rpm and then it reengages, suddenly, and then suddenly leaps ahead. Other times it just shudders a bit when I hit the gas and then drives normally. Not good!

I can't find the special Tool to release the Quick Fit Jaguar Special Tool # 303 1496. Can any Body help?

The heater hose (Part # MNC6733AE) has 5 connection points. 3 are regular slip over connections secured by spring clamps. Two have "quick release" fittings The one on the left side of the motor can be manipulated by hand the other fitting on the right side of the motor requires some sort of tool. What is the tool. how does it work' and where can I get one?

I have never seen this fitting before. Some one I know said it is a "Quick release" and that there is a very simple tool to take it apart. If so where can I find one and how do they work?
