Question about 1998 Jaguar XJ8L
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
