Ok so i have started digging into this XJ. I know I need a new valve cover and gasket (PO wrenched this thing down to the point it coming to bits). No reading visible on thermostat at all. Heater/Fan selector seems to function proper but nothing but freezing air blows. Right now over all it runs ****e. Ordered a new head-gasket, figure it is prob bad either way a new ones going on. XJ has 200k inside is in top condition for the age. What other typical mechanical should i focus on?
