I had what seems to be the exact problem. It sounds like the spark plugs need replacing or the coils over the spark plugs have cracked. Don't try to replace just one and while you're in the process of removing them you might as well replace the plugs too. If you've already done this, I'm not sure what your next step would be, slight of putting it on a montor. You need to remove the plastic shrouds around the engine. Undo the engine mount so the silver plastic covers can be removed on both sides. You'll also have to remove the black plastic covers over the wiring harness on top of the engine at te front. They just snap off. Each coil has a small screw holding them in place. Good luck.
if its a rhd. xj40, its easy. remove lh lower dash liner 4 screws, remove glovebox more screws. drain out some coolant if you want to avoid a wet footwell ! you will see 2 pipes held in by allen screws i think, remove pipes, remove plastic cover remove heater core make sure to renew o ring seals. if its a x300 its dash out,
Begin by sliding under the front of the car and locating the radiator drain plug on the bottom of the passenger's side of the radiator. Slide the catch container under the drain plug. Use the socket set to loosen and remove the plug. Allow all the coolant to drain out of the system.
Follow the coolant line that comes out of the bottom of the radiator and enters the engine block. Where the line enters the block, there is a small oval cover. Use the socket set to remove the two screws holding this oval cover on. Below the cover, you will find the thermostat.
Pull the thermostat out and then slide in the new thermostat. Replace the cover and tighten down the mounting screws. Unscrew the radiator cap and fill the system with a 50/50 mix of water and radiator fluid. Start the car and see if it cools down like it should.
very simple. remove black plastic cover by the air filter box. -couple of phillips plastic screws. then reach in and turn black plastic round dust cover,counter-clockwise then carefully remove electrical plug (harness) and then with your finger push metal hold down (silver) to unlock the bulb. do not touch new bulb with fingers (will reduce the bulb life) wear gloves.reverse procedure to install.remember the bulb is replaced from under the hood and no other tools are required.
if your talking about the chrome plated hub caps, you can use a 3/4" socket with a short extension to unsrew the black plastic nut covers off turning them counterclockwise until they're loose then pull the wheel coves off. When you screw the plastic nut covers on tighten by hand until they're snug don't over tighten them you can srtip the plastic threads (note: the actual lug steel lug nuts are under the wheel covers make sure you tighten them good )
The air filter is in a black plastic holder with 4 latches attached to a big black corrugated plastic pipe with a funny looking silver box attached to it. Unsnap the latches, lift off the top cover, and remove the air filter cartridge. Hold the cartridge up to sunlight---can you see the sun through it? If not--replace it (bring the thing with you to the car parts store to get the right replacement. Hope that helps you. Replace in reverse procedure. :)
