Question about 1997 Jaguar XK8
Started fine the other day.
OK.....sounds like its flooded thats all......Put the battery on charge to ensure its fully charged,Un clip the top of the air filter housing so it is loose and you can see the filter. put your foot to the floor on the accelerator pedal and crank the engine,keep it cranking and cranking until it actually fires up,even when its trying to and it sounds to have fired up,wait until it actually starts to rev up then stop cranking and release the pedal,it may pop and bang through the air filter pipework and it also may smoke at first but once its warmed up a bit take it for a spin.The stability control light will come on because of a drop in battery voltage and should go out when its started up....hope that helps
