Question about 2000 Jaguar S-Type

1 Answer

Misfires when the engine warms up

This is a 3.0 liter engine and the problem has gotten progressively worse. The car has 82,000 on it so I assume it was plugs, changing the plugs made no difference. The problem is particularly noticeable when shifting into OD.

Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Ron

Sounds more like the ignition coil pack (coil on plug) that is intermittently breaking down.

Whip out the plugs again, see if you can see one slightly oily, or abnormal.

If so, replace that coil and it should solve your issue.

Hope this is of help.


P.S. Don´t forget to give me a rating please !

Why doesn't my Montana idle at start-up but only after 3 minute warming?

Sounds like your lower intake gaskets are leaking. It will get progressively worse if left go. When the engine is cold the gaskets are contracted and leak, as the engine warms the gaskets expand and close seal the leak.

2005 online 5 cyl has no power 40-45 is as fast as it will run just Boggs down as I try to speed up

assuming no misfires(flashing check engine light) first check fuel pressure. if ok, does this problem get worse as engine warms up? sounds alot like a plugged catalytic converter. have it checked professionally. if so, find out why ie. misfiring, oil consumption etc. they usually don't plug for no reason. many people have them replaced, and it happens again. have a reputable shop perform engin enalysis to find out why. good luck!

Bad gas milage/ moderate low power, suddenly misfiring 3 cylinder

Just start with the cam position sensor - jb weld definately would not work for very long in that heat.

REplace with new - you should be all set. The computer uses the cam's position to time the spark and fuel delivery.

Grinding noise about 30 seconds after starting

Sounds like starter isn't disengaging, get that checked pronto, you could be damaging the flywheel (very expensive). Could be any appliance also; a/c compressor, idler pully, alternator, etc. Don't wait.
