Question about 1995 Jaguar XJ6
The air pump on my X300 has begun making a loud whining
sound on start up which continues until warm up. Disconnecting the electrical connection stops the noise. If I permanently disconnect the electrical connection to the unit will this
have any serious adverse effect on the car other than a
negative effect on the car's emissions which is what I
believe the pump is there to prevent?
Alternatively, other than replacing it, can it be 'serviced'
in some way?
Thanks in advance.
Dont seem to have one on mine,must be a californian thing,well my motto is if someone built it i can strip it,problem is a lot of this stuff is put together with a big press and i get frustrated when i cant get it apart ,put a new one on ??breaks my heart buying spares when i know i can fix them but a sealed unit is often that ,a sealed unit thats tamperproof to stop people from repairing them so dealer sells more bits.
