Question about 1995 Jaguar XJ6

1 Answer

Noisy air pump

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.

What could be wrong with the power sterring if it makes a loud noise. after checking poer sterring fluid


The most common problem with noisy power steering (whining noise) is that the power steering pump is defective. If you replace the pump make sure you flush the system with clean PS fluid or it can ruin the new pump.

I can hear the fuel pump cut on and then cut off. and off but it seems very noisy. Is that an indication that it is bad? The engine tries to start


If fuel pump is whining excessively loud then yes it is a definite sign it is going out. Don't have enough information to advise you whether or not this will fix your current condition but a noisy fuel pump is a failing fuel pump.

Power steering pump is whining, I replaced it and the new one whines just as loud. what could be wrong


make sure your using power steering fluid recommended for the vehicle. If automatic transmission fluid it aerates causing bubbles. It's very similar to the effect of shaking a bottle of liquid detergent vigorously when half full. Having that much air in the system can cause it to whine very loudly and reduce the life of the pump.

High Pitch whine during acceleration


Hi Pullerwife,

I have a few suggestions for you,

First of all, check your air filter, make sure its clean, not clogged, and doesn't need to be changed.

I don't know how handy you are, but if you are fairly handy, check the idler pulley bearings, if your not, have a shop check it out, as a last resort.

Power steering pump/fluid being low is also a possibility, but thats usually more of a lower pitched whine then what you describe.

You say once the vehicle is warmed up, the whining stops. Does Weather seem to be a factor as well?

Hope I've helped, and don't forget to rate.
