Question about 1995 Jaguar XJ-R

1 Answer

Low end torque missing

I was sitting in stop and go traffic and one day I was accelerating slightly and heard and loud crack from the rear end...it was very intense.
Since then the car runs and drives but their is no low end torque to the car.
Also another annoying prblem Ihave is traction control and anti lock work until I reach 15 miles per hour, then the trouble lights both come on...cleaned and checked sensors in all brakes but the problem still persists.
thanks

SOURCE: Loud noise from rear of car

It happened in our car as well. The problem with our car was the bushings on the rear suspension needed to be replaced.

It is not an inexpensive problem and one that only the dealer could fix, at least according to a couple of shops I spoke with b4 I went to the dealer. With an alignment ( 4wheel - ours is AW), it costs around $900.

Am replacing upstream O2 sensors and cleaning MAF next. Will keep you posted if it clears up. Did you ever find the cause?

SOURCE: I have a brake pedal judder at low speed, it only

Does this wobble the steering wheel or your seat? The difference is very important. If it shakes the steering wheel, you have warped front rotors. If it's more through the car and seats, rear rotors are warped. Let me know please.

When turning, it produces a torque load on the rotation of the engine. The turning and this noise is heard, and can be duplicated while sitting still, sounds to be from an engine mount, or transmission mount that has or is failing. If more info is needed, please leave me more info. Craig

Replace the fuel filter. That should fix the problem. You can follow the fuel line back to the fuel tank to find it. It is usually in the middle of the vehicle near the edge of the vehicle, like right under the passengers or drivers door.

Shaking at low speed (25-30 mph)


low speed shakes indicates a wheel alignment problem
have the suspension and wheel bearings checked out by an accredited suspension shop
under acceleration it could be engine mounts cracked in the rubber being actuated by misfiring form a cylinder

Bmw e46 loud vibration noise from front wheel


usually noise complaint can be pretty tricky to repair. especially if its intermittent. since you say it only when its cold my first guess would have to be a wheel bearing. some other things you can check is how the tires are wearing. when you rub your hand along the tread is it smooth or does the tread catch your hand. if your tires aren't wearing smooth noise complaints can be heard while slightly turning, braking, or even accelerating.also if its a wheel bearing you can lift the vehicle up in the rear (turn off your dsc) and run the rear tires up to speed. usually you can hear a loud wheel bearing. also you can drive the vehicle and swerve back and forth and see if the nosie changes. depending on which side of the vehicle suspension is being loaded
