Question about 1998 Jaguar XJ8L

1 Answer

Jaguar xj8 will not start.

I purchased a Jaguar 4 litre xj8 with a damaged engine. The engine would start but noisey and had a massive vibration. So I fitted a replacement engine that I had heard running. Since fitting the engine the injectors and the ignition coils don't switch, so the car won't start. I have fitted a new crank sensor still no switching of the injectors and coils. Any ideas would be greatfully received.
Regards
Robert

SOURCE: Climate blower motor vibrates on Jaguar XJ8.

Sounds like plastic, leaves, or paper got sucked into the ducting, to the fan, on the blower. You'll need to access the blower motor, remove it, and remove the objects. Not sure, would be in your owners manual, but if you car has a clean-air cabin air filter. You may be able to remove the debris from there. Good Luck.

SOURCE: 1998 jaguar xj8 consumes anti-freeze

First thing to check is the radiator cap seal. If it is not sealing properly, the water will boil off and then soon, the anti freeze will begin to disappear. Clean the metal surfaces and gasket and make sure it is tight ---or buy a new cap --but make sure there is a seal. If that doesn't cure it, you may have a head gasket leak that blows the coolant (anti freeze) into one cylinder. If that cylinder is tight, the coolant will only evaporate in the heat and be blown out the exhaust --not entering the oil pan. Check your exhaust when you start up. You may see white smoke, or even liquid, exiting the exhaust pipe, indicating a blown head gasket (then engine may run rough, too). If this is the case, there are reasonably inexpensive cures for this in some cases.

SOURCE: very noisy squeky fron suspension on jaguar xj8

You might need a lube job or you may need to see if noise is coming from another place such as your engine water pump, brakes, power steering. Look for leaks.

2004 Jaguar XJ8 - 102700KMS - Vibration in the body from 80km-110kms. Have changed all 4 tyres and balance. Mechanie said that will fix the problem; now he is saying that it may be the drivetrain which he...


Check the u-joints in the drive shaft for looseness or rust streaks. The speed makes it well above harmonic vibrations normally occur. Check rear engine mount for condition and if the rubber is soft it may pay to replace it. The jaguar car rear end uses the two axles as upper control arms and so it may be necessary to check the u- joints here as they carry a lot of load holding the wheels upright while driving the car. It may pay to find a jaguar. specialist workshop because the drive train and rear end are not the same as most other cars and general mechanics will have little specific knowledge to diagnose the problem correctly
