My xj8 Jaguar crank up and sets right back off what all could be wrong

Security is set. Could be one problem. Fuel system can do this, but rarely. Takes a scanner to see where to look first.

Need to replace fuel pump on a 1999 jaguar xj8. where is the pump located and can u get 2 it through the back seat or do u have to drop the gas tank.

Typically Jaguar fuel pumps are the submerged type (i.e. in the fuel tank) so you will need to remove the fuel tank or there might be a panel in the the tank that you can remove to get the the fuel pump. Good luck.

Just planing to buy a XJ8 1999 brand of Jaguar and want to be sure it's a good car in terms of general maintenance and gas consumption in particular

1998 to 2001 Jaguar XJ8 have a big engine design problem, timing chain tensioners are made out of plastic, and with time they brake ,causing big Damage to Engine, if you buy the car make sure those tensioners are replaced to a next generation tensioners wich are way better(made with some metal) as per gas consuption, about 16 miles per gallon in the city and 22 in the highway.

I ran out of gas and after fueling the car it still wont start dont think its getting any gas. the car is a 2001 jaguar xj8. How or where can i check fuel system?

if you ran completely out of gas you may have harmed the fuel pump,the gas is what keeps the fuel pump bearings lubricated.there is one thing you can try that has work alot of times in my line of work,the pump could just be stuck and you have one chance to get it going again,have a friend try to start your car while you hit the bottom of the fuel tank with a hammer,sometimes this vibration will unlodge the pump

2001 jagaur xj8 blows fuel out when filling

I had the same problem. My mechanic told me I had a clogged charcoal filter. Essentially, when I was filling the tank, it wasn't letting air escape so the fuel kept blowing back out. Including labour, it cost me around $200 to fix.
