Question about 1998 Jaguar XJ8L
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.
How old is the car, and how old is the engine you fitted.
later engine require old flywheel as crank senors are different.

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.

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.

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.
