Question about 1984 Jaguar XJ
I've had the vehicle for a year and never had any problems. This morning while driving, the vehicle kept hesitating and finally cut off when I stopped. I restarted and it came on immediately. Before I could get to my destination, it cut off (3) more times. The last time the oil was changed was in May 2008, but I have not put 3000 miles on it from that time to the present. Could the problem come from not having the oil changed? Any suggestions?
Not having your oil changed is not the problem.
Having a low oil level can give you problems though.
So I hope you have been checking the level since your last service ?
Have you had any warning messages or codes flashing up ?
Let me know.

I had an 88 vdp xj40 that did this. You should look at the camshaft position sensor, and all the ignition stuff. The fuel rail can also get "gooed up". Check these things first, then worry about other things. That should get you started the right path...

What you need to do is remove the 2 screws on the top bezel from inside the engine bay, then underneath the outer corner of the plastic headlamp surround there is a philips screw, (put your head under neath car near from wheel) loosen the screw, do not remove it, now the headlamp plastic bezel/surround will come free enough so you can get a philips screwdriver in through the middle of the headlamp surround, there is a chrome retaining ring holding the headlamp in place, loosen the 3 philips screws (do not remove) The retaining ring will rotate and you can slide the ring out from the outer edge of the headlamp surround. The headlamp will then come out throught the middle of the surround, disconnect the 3 pin multiplug and reverse process for install.

no there is'nt enough pressure underneath to make it leak try tighting up the valve cover bolts or just getting a new gasket about a $6.00 to $10.00 dollar fix depending on where you go
