Take the car to a specialist to check the timing chain tensioners, they are a known issue. I`d advise you to not use (or even start) the car till theyve been ruled out, the engine could be made scrap if the tensioners goes.

If it does need tensioners, get the later metal type ones fitted.

Check engine light


Take you Jag in for its 6 Mon/1 yer maintenance schedule check up for the can rest the light. This engine light will come on when the vehicle has reached certain mileage and/or time interval.


Unless, if the vehicle is have some other problems, like fuel pump, it not running the correctly, ERG valve is out, O2 sensor is bad, etc. But if your Jaguar XJ8 is doing just dandy. Then it need to be other type of service; such as, coolant changed, differnial fluid needs to be changed, or the automatic transmission also needs to be changed. GB...stewbison

Engine Misfiring. Rough Idling. Losing power going up hills. Engine light flickered one day. I brought it to dealer. They said cyl 5 had a fouled spark plug. They replaced it, retuned and cleared code....


It sounds like it could be a bad coil pack that is used for number 5 cylinder. It could also be a bad spark plug wire. Does the weather seem to make a difference? Try this quick check once night time comes around. Open the hood and start the engine. Fill a bug sprayer with salt water and spray the plug wire while the engine is running. If the wire is bad, you might notice an electrical arc from the wire to the engine block. The engine will probably start running rough. If this occurs, then the wire should be replaced. If it doesn't, then the coil pack can be tested with an ohm meter. I hope this information has been helpful to you. Good luck with your problem and thank you for using Fixya.com.

Engine noisy when idling


It could be faulty fan belts, pour some water while the engine is idling into the belt and observe if the noise has lessened. In such case switchoff engine use some wax or chalk to rub into the belt. this may be a relief for some time.
further it can be fault with the idling pulley, the water pump bearing also can make a noise at lower RPM.

The best thing to do is go to an exhaust specialist, who can check the catylitic converter and also the oxygen sensors. You will need to replace these items if they are at fault. Hope this helps

Noisy engine idle and stutter at low or high speed


I had the same problem (X-type 2.0d 2004). The stutter was cured on mine by getting the ECU fashed with the latest firmware. This is a known problem and the update does cure it (£28), I didn't bother with all the tests the garage wanted to.
The noisey engine at idle is the alternator belt. It resonates at idle and causes the noise, There is a modified bottom pulley, tensioner and belt kit, but it is rather expensive ~£200 plus fitting (around 4 hours labour). Mondeo's have the same problem but that kit doesn't fit the Jag.
Hope this helps
