Missfire on all left hand bank s-type v6 year 2000

My jag started to missfire about a week ago,Garage said was sparkplugs.
Had new fitted by garage today,But not solved problem.Now they say all left hand bank missfire,They changed coils from one side to the other but still missfire.no warning lights on and they say no codes for a fault But there equipment may not be good enough to show fault codes.as they are not a main dealer.\would of been nice to know before i paid for plugs re-placing.

Replace condenser on 2000 s type jag


FIRST OF ALL YOU HAVE TO TAKE CAR TO DEALERSHIP SO THEY CAN DISCHARGE AND RECOVER THE REFRIGERANT.THEN YOU CAN TAKE CAR HOME REMOVE THE RADIATOR TOP SUPPORT THEN REMOVE CONDENSORS LINES THEN CONDENSOR.GO TO DEALERSHIP TO BUY CONDENSOR LINES ORINGS LUBRICATE WITH R134 REFRIGERANT OIL.PUT NEW CONDENSOR.TAKE IT TO A GARAGE LET THEM PUMP IT DOWN ALL MOISTURE OUT OF SYSTEM CHECK FOR LEAKS THEN CHARGE IT BACK UP THIS WOULD BE THE CHEAPER WAY.

NO.a garage doesnt even have to ask you what "extras"you want(aux belt)although if they asked you would you have agreed as "most garages are a ripoff trying to fit items that are not required...."the majority are not cowboys but get tarred with the same brush.

Engine missfire


Get your local garage to put a scanner on the car. The early s-type used to suffer from ignition coil faults. If a fault has been hinted towards a specific coil then swap to a different cylinder and see if the fault follows wich will indicate a coil fault.

Has the vehicle had its spark plugs changed? every 70.000 miles as they tend to fail if left unchanged. Intake manifold requires removing to replace bank 1 plugs.

Also check the small rubber elbow on the end of the plastic beather pipe wich runs throught the intake manifold branches. Elbow is located at the rear of the engine

Hope that helps

2000 trooper starts and idles fine, but when i put it in gear and give it gas it barely moves and the rpms drop. Also, when i disconnect the spark plugs on the right side the engines continues running the...


WELL WHAT ENGINE HAVE YOU GOT I know it must be either a V6 OR V8 and if the right hand bank of either 3 or 4 plugs leads are taken off and it still keeps the same and it dosent make any differance to the revs etc then it got to be a gasket on the inlet manifold on that head so that no petrol vapor is getting as it is sucking air only..
But what i carnt work out is how it run correctly on the Left hand bank only (IT CARNT)
There was a Army truck 1 tonner years ago that was a v8 and they had it to run on 1 bank of 4pistons {as a 4 cylinder engine} and after 150.000 miles they would take the old pistons out and fitted 4 more to the other bank and they kept running 100%.. but you havent got one of them sorry to tell you.. So let me know the answer to all above Ron

Sounds like air has gotten into the hydraulic clutch system, or it is low on fluid from a failed master or slave hydraulic clutch cylinder or connecting line between the master and slave cylinders.
