Question about 1998 Jaguar XJ8L

Is it difficult to replace spark plugs in a Jaguar XJ8

I opened the hood and could not see exactly where to find the spark plugs. Also should I change the spark plug leads at the same time. The vehicle has 98k kilometres on the clock

Your car does not have plug leads so that will save you a job,the spark plugs are fairly easy to do tho.
Open the bonnet,either side of the engine at the top there are 2 black covers bolted to the top of your engine,bolted to those are 2 smaller covers,remove the 2 smaller covers which will reveal your ignition coils,remove the ciols and your spark plugs are there.
You will have to remove the air filter assembly tho on the right hand side which is easy enough,remove the bolts from pipe at the rear middle of engine,undo the clips which houses the filter and disconnect the engine breather pipe.Re assemble in reverse order,
N.B the spark plugs dont want tightening too tight..or too loose,when the plug nips up just give it a little nip again..GOOD LUCK

Try this before you do anything else. Charge the battery up and then after you charge the battery connect a known good jumper battery to the battery in the car as though you are jumping off a car with a dead battery.

How do I change the spark plugs for a 2001 xj8 where are they located


They are located under the black plastic covers on the top of the engine. Remove those and you will see the ignition coils. Take those out and the spark plugs are beneath them. There are no spark plug wires.

My 2004 Jaguar xj8 will not release both latches with the inside release. How can I get to the latch without the hood opening?


If your bonnet will not release, there is a rubber plug inside fender located up in
the wheel well under the latch. Remove the plug, stick a screwdriver up and pry the latch
back. The hood / bonnet will open.
