Sounds like most of your problems could be fixed by a quick trip to a junkyard. And I think you might need a new thermostat.

Check the plug going into the thermostat housing on the front of the engine. May be broken or loose from the accident or the repair. Could also be the temp sensor. After a hit up front you might be chasing a few issues like that as you start to drive it again. It's worth it rather than a car payment though. Nice to see another XJ saved from the yard.

My friend thinks maybe its the sensor we're not sure, I'll have to mess with it.

Found out that it was the coolant temperature sensor for the sending unit. Replaced it and everything is back to normal. Now I just have to deal with all that noise the belt is making.
