    Try disconnecting the air mass flow sensor then start. Or start car and if lumpy, disconnect same sensor. Mine dies a bit then runs smooth. Switch off , reconnect, then try again. Your sensor could be giving intermittent bad signal. I took mine out and sprayed brake cleaner through same way as airflow and it ran great for a while. Also mine ran better when some of the rear exhaust wadding was hanging out and I pulled loads of it out of both boxes using a hooked rod !! Good luck. TED, Scotland.

this is a old model and it should have a cold start valve or it should have a coolant temp sensor, replace the colant temp sensor which is usualy located on the thermostat housing or on the intake manifold and this will sove the clod start problema!!

SOURCE: 2005 Jaguar XJ8 won't start after going through the car wash.

Underneath the pollen filter housing under the bonnet the ECM (engine control module) is located,If any of the drains are blocked you could be getting water into the ECM....Just a thought...Hope this helps

SOURCE: Engine won't start on Jaguar XJ8 Vandenplas TRAC NOT AVAILABLE

hey blackdiam522,
First did you have a check engine light, and do you know what the code was if you did?

Ok, the traction control not available isnt goin to affect the car from starting.During my year of a jaguar tech the most common for a crank, no start is a flooded engine. Now the two most causes for a flooded engine on these jags are 1. the weather is just super cold and all the own does is keep cranking the car to try to get to start. 2. A lot of short trip, a lot of city driving, 15 mins or less.

When you get something like this, a no start crank, you have to pump the gas pedal really fast, like your starting an oil muscle car. this forces more air into the engine.

when this no start happend u could get all these codes, what i maybe would recommend is a tune up, and some highway driving every once and a while to kept this from happening again, hopefully this helps, thanks.

SOURCE: jaguar xj6 not starting

Yes you can check the Crank & Cam Sensors they can control spark and fuel. You can test them by finding out the normal resistance and then testing yours for their resistance. Do you have a way to scan the car? Did it quit while driving?

1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Sport it just won't start. It cranks, that's it. It was running fine yesterday.


If it was running yesterday and only cranks this morning you need to determine which you are missing - spark or fuel. The spark is easy - pull a plug and let it spark to the frame. while cranking. If you have spark then you have to start checking the fuel system.

I would tend to agree its very possible you have a bad starter.You could remove it and have it tested.Most of your local auto parts stores do this for free.

Check out your cold start choke. It is designed to cause your fuel mixture to run "rich" until it warms up. It is basically a heat sensitive coil that reacts to heat from the exhaust manifold.

Unfortunately, on this car, it a VERY expensive problem to get fixed.
If the problem occurs again, be careful not to flood the engine. Try to get it running again, and take it in for a professional estimate and repair.

Cold start


Obviously a sensor feeding wrong info to computer for cold start/running. Will save money in long run if you have it scanned for free at auozone, or PEP boys.
