Question about Jaguar Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have a 2000 XJ8; my car lost all power; towed to my home. Manager says he doesn't know what is the matter but that the entire right side of the motor is

"dead" (those cylinders. Claims we have a spark; have fuel; but zippo power. Doesn't know if it's related to intake manifold or what. Had it 8 hours today with Jaguar Logic connected but got to results. A friend thinks it is a "glich" in the computer in my car; it is definitely not the sensors. I'm original owner since 11 miles; love my car; her name is Gardenia. Cannot bear to think of not being able to get her repaired. Tomorrow am having it towed to the Jag Dealership. What do you think? Thank so much.

Have you tried replacing the ignition coils? If they get old and stop working, or if they're damaged, they won't send a strong enough spark to the plugs. AutoZone (I think) apparently does free diagnostic codes for a check engine light. I don't know if you have a check engine light on or not, but maybe the light burned out? It might be worth a try to call them and ask if they can check the codes for you for free.

SOURCE: silverado 2000 5.3 4x4 gas gauge not working

there are 4 wires at the sender - and 3 wires for the vapour sensor-the two heavier wires are for the pump and the lighter wires are for the guage-the lighter purple wire should have 5 volts on it-if not you may have a wire or computer problem-th guage is an input to the pcm(computor) under the hood and then is transmitted via comm. line to the cluster-if the rest of the guages work in the cluster you need to look at the pcm or wiring to the tank

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.

To clarify something you said, the accessories should go off when the key switch is in the start position.
Are you getting power to the coil and the computer when the key switch is on and in start ?

Where is the battery located at on my 2000 volkswagon beetle 2.0 hatch back. Just need to find it. I would like to know where it is??

Should be in the engine compartment on the driver's side front. It probably has a cover over it, so it doesn't jump right out if your not familiar with this model. Let me know if I can help furthur!

My Blazer is smoking from under the hood on the right side. It doesn't sound like the gears are shifting correctly when i drive. It only smokes after i'm on the express way. What could that be?

If your gears are not shifting correctly that you have a transmission problem and should be taken to a mechanic in your area or you will have to replace the whole transmission so do not drive the blazer and have it towed to a mechanic in your area. Do not drive the blazer any more have it towed now !!!

42 miles with a jaguar. First I love Jaguars. Youll get to your home by a tow truck. The car is talking to you say its sick.Here is what will happen, The TRAC, ASC, light is on okay the APP will now go to limp home mode what this mean it will default giving limited operations, youll probable just go 30mph, and that is just it. The transmission does not know what gear or how fast its going so it communicates to the powertrain it tell it I dont know what Im doing so it activates the traction control and say keep me safe the traction control say okay Ill get disable, then the transmission control tell the powertrain I could be burning up or slipping. So The APP(acclerator pedal position ) gets involved and say we will just limp on home.Remeber i love juguars so does tow trucks

I have a 2000 F350 7.3L crew cab long bed with 140k miles. Mostly highway miles and never towed anything over 3500 pounds until now and has not ever been chipped. I just towed a 23' toy hauler 5000 lbs...

Sounds like the front seal leaked some fluid. If I remember right the tranny cooler in that year is less than adequate for towing. The "puking" seems to happen when your jogging the trailer into position, shifting from drive to reverse and not moving very fast. One fix is to install the 6.0 aux cooler and another is to install an aftermarket cooler. My '94 F350 did this on a 123 degree day when I was trying to jostle my 9,000 lb fifth wheel into my friends front yard. I lost about 1/2 qt. replaced it and it hasen't leaked since..that was about 2 years ago.

When was the last time you changed plugs, wires, and cap/rotor? Also check the fuel filter.

Big thump when car goes into gear..lost of power..can hardly go up a hill..transmission bad??do I need another transmission or can 1st and or second gear be fixed..2000 xj8..162,400 miles

Do this first. have the oil and filter changed, Then see what happens. The trans can be rebuilt but oil and filter chage will be pennies against the cost of a XJ8 overhaul. It's your calYou can make a better decision when the pan is dropped. Whatever is settled in the pan will tell you what to do. Good Luck -Ned- Don't tske it to AAMCO
