SOURCE: thick blue smoke. no oil
Hi! Chris, There are many causes of oil burning or exhaust smoke. There are three different causes of normal oil burning, 1; worn valve guides (smoking during deceleration), 2; worn cylinders and piston rings (smoking during acceleration), 3; split or worn out valve seal, or damaged intake manifold gasket (smoking all the time). Of course there are several variables in this equation. Sometimes coolant can also get into a cylinder and cause a blueish smoke. If you remove the spark plugs and use a pressure pump on the coolant system (radiator), coolant should leak into the intake manifold or cylinder. Coolant leaking into the intake manifold will leak into several cylinder through the valves. So, what year and how many miles are on the Jaguar?

there could be several possibilities, first did you change the fuel filter? most often times a partially plugged fuel filter will cause the sputtering. plugged fuel filters generally lead to the failure of the fuel pump. if you have a fuel injected vehicle the injector themselves can fail, this happens often especially if regular maintenance doesn't happen. i always use an injector cleaner additive when i fill up each time. a common symptom of sputtering is a plugged catalayic converter. the engine needs to breath to run right. also check the airfilter this is important for the engine to breath as well as proper fuel air mixture. if the engine senses a loss of power due to low fuel air mixture it will try to pump more fuel then it should therefore it's basically flooding itself. try these basic fixes first. if this doesn't solve the problem then post back with more detail and i will try a different approach.. please rate this thanks.
