I used my jag to jump start my wifes car, then parked up until the next day, now the engine just spins over, no compression, and refuses to start. is this a short start problem and how do i get around it.

    Hi simfea

    Thanks for the input. but i have solved this.

    It was no compression due to the bores being washed out with petrol from the short start problem that v8 suffer from.

    i took the plugs out ,well six of them as the other two were difficult to reach, poured two capfuls of oil down each plughole, replaced plugs, removed the fuse for the fuel pump, turned engine over to lubricate the bores a couple of times, put fuse for fuel pump back in, turn engine over again without touching pedals and she fired right up, albeit creating enough smoke to get every neighbour out in the street wondering where the sun had disapeared to.

    She runs like a dream now, but i will treat her to an oil change to make sure this doesnt happen again.

Check all your fuses first as it sounds like you shorted something out, did you turn the jag off before connecting the jump leads, if you did you will be ok but if you did not it is more than likely a fuse.
hope thishelps

2000 Jaguar xj8 turn over won't start stability control fail light on.


the stab light comes on if the battery is low because you are cranking the engine your aj26 v8 engine may have a common problem for cars up to that model/year with worn nicosil coated bores ie. low compression check the vin no. at your jag dealer you can get it started by removing the spark plugs and putting a egg cup of engine oil in to each of the cylinders the first thing to do is to check for fault codes using a obd code reader for a clue followed by a compression test

a common problem with the jaguar aj26 v8 engine around that year is low compression due to wear on the nicosil coated bores to get it started you can try removing the fuel pump relay in the boot/trunk fuse box and cranking the engine and keeping the throttle pedal to the floor when it fires get someone to help and put the relay back in has it fires.if not take all the plugs out and put a couple of sqirts of engine oil from a oil can or similar in to each cylinder crank the engine over a little with plugs out refit the plugs and retry
