Replace the valve cover gasket if the valve cover gaskets are
leaking or if they're worn. The procedure is as follows:-- 1)First carefully remove the nuts
holding the valve cover to the engine head.2 2)Thenpull the
valve cover off from the engine head . 3)You can use flat-tip screwdriverto remove the valve cover. 4)It will be very dirty inside so you
will have to clean the mating surfaces on both the engine head and the valve
cover. 5)Take your time and clean it completely.
6)You can use a bead of RTV
sealant on both mating surfaces. 7)Then carefully seat the gasket to top of the engine head. 8)The gasket can only be fitted in one way. So fit it properely. 9)Then tightly Press the valve cover
to the gasket 10)And tighten the valve cover nuts
secure. This will help.Good Luck.
After removing the 10mm bolt where the oil dipstick attaches you have to wiggle and work the tube up (this requires a lot of force). If that does not work and it is jammed, you can use a small pair of very sharp dykes to cut the metal ring that attaches it to the valve cover gasket bolt. after cutting, bend it out of the way and pull it away from the cover which will give you enough room to sneak the cover off.
Be sure to ask the dealer or parts guys for new varible valve cover gaskets which is not included in the valve cover set.
In the back of the low bulb unit, is a round cover, turn it to remove it, then you have access to the bulbs, you´ll need patience large and thin fingers. I suggest you to buy the bulb first and a good quality one, because you´ll need to work on this with a cold engine.
Have you checked the large rubber pipe that goes from bank 2 cam cover to the intake manifold as they are prone to splitting. To check you will need to remove the 3 srews that hold the engine cover on.
If not look for an air leak around the intake manifold seals
To get to the cabin air filter on an XK8 or XKR, you have to do the following steps (I know these steps sound ridiculous...as in many cars there is just a simple cover in the engine compartment... but...): The air filter is under the black plastic cowl or plenum that is just under the windshield wiper blade connectors. To get to that, you must 1. carefully lift off the plastic covers that reveal screw heads. Remove the screws. 2. lift off the plastic covers that are on the top of each windshield wiper connector - under the cover you will then see a nut or bolt that has to be unscrewed. 3. Using a small puller (the puller that lifts off battery terminals works for this) lift off each windshield wiper and disconnect the rubber hose from each. 3. lift the car's front hood, and remove the plastic cowling (you also have to lift the side rubber runners and a rubber strap from each side that holds up the rubber drain hoses). Once you remove that plastic cowling, you will see the air filter plenum at the back of the engine area. The air filter should come vertically out of that. (This air filter does not exist on my 2000 and earlier editions...I am not sure what year Jaguar installed them.) Full instructions are on the Jaguar JTIS CD which you should obtain...look online for that.
