Question about 1998 Jaguar XJ8L

1 Answer

My 1998 Jaguar Vanden Plas won't start

It is very cold and my Jaguar won't start, The battery was already checked by raodside assistance and they don't think it is that. There wasn't very much gas in the tank and the car was left without driving it for a few days. I was wondering if the fuel lines or the fuel tank might be frozen. If so is there anything that I can do myself to fix it?

    my car sat for a couple of cold days. When I went to go out the car started and then ran for a couple of seconds and then stalled, and hasn't ran since. That's about three days now.

Gas dosent freeze but if you had water in the tank its possible the line may be partially glogged add some heet to the tank and try cranking it over and see if that dosent help you may have to use starter fluid to get the gas flowing again

2004 Jaguar, Vaden Plaus,car just quit running going down the road. Had to have it towed home Won't start,turns over, just won't start,says Restricted Performance.


Sounds like it is some type of 'limp home' mode.
It could be anything. It might be as simple as a bad Fuel Pump Relay. When you turn the Key to the ON position (not Start) can you hear a little buzz for about 1 second? That would be your fuel pump running. You need to see if the engine is getting gas and spark.

Heavy gas smell on 2000 jaguar vanden plas


check for a bad fuel filter or a leaking rubber line after the fuel pump . To dump that much fuel so quickly ,the fuel pump is pumping to a broken /split hose or steel line.

Have a 2001 jaguar vanden plas. It won't start. It cranks fine battery is good but it won't turn over. I have been told could be fuel filter and or fuel pump. If you agree how do i change


To confirm that is is the fuel pump at issue here get a can of spray starting fluid and next time it won't fire up spray it into the air intake hose of the engine while someone cranks the engine over, if it lights right off then the pump may be the problem. A clogged fuel filter may cause loss of power but seldom if ever a no start.
