That Jaguar Thermostat Housing is a million times better than the Original and glad to see the wrench trick helped...looks good! Thanks for the updatesWell the parts arrived on Thursday and since my shop wanted $400 to do the job I decided to do it myself. The leak was in the thermostat housing and I installed the metal one from Rockauto and it is excellent. The tip on the wrench proved invaluable... attached is a photo of mine. Thanks for all the help!

Joe, have you kept any track of how many times you've answered this?Yes, there is. It really is overheating. The way the gauge is buffered fools people.
Just about everyone on here has been through this. You need to change every plastic cooling system part and refill and bleed it exactly by the factory procedure. Use OEM parts. There have been a lot of bad experiences here with aftermarket. Do them all. Nearly everyone who has changed just the most obviously leaking part has found one by one that all the rest were too. It's a lot cheaper to do it all at once, than one part at a time over the next month or so.
Change all the plastic parts at the same time.
got the metal thermostat housing. I believe the housing can be removed with touching the intake... with a brake bleeerb wrench and needle nose pliers for the last couple of turns.
