My steering wheel shakes when braking over 40 mph

most likely a warped rotor, check front end components (tie rod ends, ball joints). if a caliper is sticking the rotor will get very hot, get black, or discolor, and bend (warp). drive around for10 min. and jab the brakes hard several times during the drive. stop and feel the temp (don't touch) of each wheel with your hand. they should be equally warm. hot or smoking is not a good caliper.

How to check and add transmission fluid?

you lost the operators guide, sure....
and if in USA, that be hard the dealer died. so cant just drive there and buy one, huh? actually they are free, (its a big safety issue not having one)
add thrue dip stick hole,
check. on most cars is this.
  • run engine for 2 mins, (if in Siberia, drive 5 miles)
  • set hand brake and foot brake, and cycle the shifter true all gears.
  • as 3 times.
  • then when tranny at room temp 20C/ 72F
  • then check the dip level (cold = 20C)
  • it must show at cold, not hot. or low.
  • must be checked running engine.
  • and the fluid varies its volume by actual oil temperature.

RTM is best
or go to ebay and buy a used, operators guide, and WIN.

Hi when driving my car the temp gauge wont move but when siting foe 5 to 10 mins idling the gugue moves up to half

Hi, I don't think you have to do much. Check that the thermostat is working properly (open and close) when temp rises.

My jaguar 4.2 2003 s type car will not start when hot but if you wait 20 mins it will start. stat & waterpump replaced.there is no coolant loss or signs of overheating , car drives fine apart from this...

sounds like the temp sencer switch is bad the fan isn't comming on when you turn the car off
when you turn your motor off the temp in the motor rises and the fan shood come on thats why you need to wait 20min to restart the temp has gone down and it isnt vapor locked
