Re: 96 XJ Overheating

Like the idea of installing
the Taurus fan in FRONT of the radiator.

Since you have it and likely still have the wiring.
Cheap and easy experiment which could solve your problems.

fixing the exhaust leak might help too.

Ever consider taking/monitoring the underhood temps?
A few people here have posted their underhood temps would be nice to compare.

Re: 96 XJ Overheating

What are you basing your overheat on? The factory gauge?
It may be faulty.

I'd double check it with an IR thermometer when it says it's hot.

That said.
i'd start with the exhaust leak. If it's affecting your o2 sender it may have a crazy fuel mixture.
Cat plugged?
tried it with a test pipe?
