Jaguar S Type V8 Auto 2000 no start

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

I have a jaguar 2000 S-Type, around 98 k miles. I drive it about 5 times a week for about 1 hour each day. Recently, I parked it in the back as there was a severe snow alert and did not drive it for about...


Check your battery with a volt meter. When it gets cold, the plates inside the battery restrict the amperage needed on your car. Get a fresh battery to avoid the hassle. When the current doesn't flow thru the battery due to cold weather, not even a jump will help because its still almost an open circuit. Keep the new battery warm and install it in your jag. start it immediately to get it warmed up. Check your antifreeze level also. If you need it, only put DexCool in concentrated form during your climate chill. It will mix with the diluted antifreeze in the system anyways. Good luck.

S type jag auto will not go into gear


The jaguar gears get stuck normally if you're parked on an incline. Its a default Jaguar will not acknowledge. rock the car back and forth a couple times and it will shift. Hope this helps good luck!
