Question about 1998 Jaguar XJ8L
I have a xj8 that the heater only blows heat when you are driving the engine under load.....when you stop at lights or junction etc the air blows cold...pull away and its hot again...any suggestions....could it be air locked or auxillary pump?????also drivers check strap broke is this an easy job cheers
There is an Electic Water Pump for the Heater that is located under the hood near the left fenderwell. If it's not a fuse, then likely, this pump is bad. Mine went bad in my 1999 Jaguar XJR. It runs close to $400 for the pump, so hopefully that's not the problem. Price does not include labor.
Since I'm comfortable with Electronics, I replaced the brushes in my motor and it works fine now. Heat all the time and only cost $1.00 You may be able to find a shop to rebuild the motor for you at a fraction of the cost.

The heat issue is likely to be a low coolant level (hopefully) issue.
