I would suggest replacing all fluids incl: Engine oil/filter, transmission oil/filter, differential oil, coolant flush/replace thermostat, brake fluid, and spark plugs. Some might consider this overkill, but some of these changes are ignored and can greatly shorten the life of the powertrain or brakes.

What is the best oil to use for a 94 XJ6 Jaguar?


Not matter of what best, but what recommended by the manufacture. if you intend on switching oils make sure they are compatible....owners manual for the weight eg 15W40, but then you have the option of synthetic, blended or regular oil....but once again, go with manufactures recommendations, and it you are super unsure, contact the jaguar dealer and ask them what types of oil you can put it
