Question about 1996 Jaguar Xj Series
I have a 1996 Jaguar XJ 4.0lt sport which has a severe wheel shake and brake judder after 15-20 miles of driving. This does not happen when the car is cold - can you tell me what this is.
When I purchased my 96 XJ6 3 weeks ago, I had the same symptoms, severe wheel wobble from the all 4 wheels at certain speeds. The is a sure sign of out-of-balance wheels, so 1 hour at Discount Tires and $32 later eliminated MOST of the problem.
After that was resolved, no more wobbling through the steering wheel, now only from the rear, especially when braking. I have not fixed this yet, but it is an indication of a warped rear rotor, possibly both, so those have to go. Need to also find out WHY the rotor(s) got warped.. possibly a previously-siezed caliper or some other issue, I will post my findings when I've found them.

What speeds are you obtaining and braking
I would think that you tires are out of balanced whether it be dabre in the rim or an improper balancing job
some cars can be fine up to 40 but when you step up the speed more the more the tires become unbalanced. making the servere shakes.
