Question about 1996 Jaguar Vanden Plas

1 Answer

Replacement Tires 2001 XJ8

I've owned three Jaguar Vanden Plas, a 1991, a 1998 and a 2000. Basically, I found the Pirellis gave me the best ride but wore out rather quickly. The Michelins gave me a stiffer ride, but lasted much, much longer. I always bought Z rated tires because they were recommended by Jaguar and because the tire stores refused to honor any warranty on the Jag unless they were Z rated. The all-steel Jags, like your 2001 Vanden Plas, are relatively heavy cars. BTW, I'm in Phoenix, AZ. I love your town but our weather is obviously not the same.

2004 Jaguar, Vaden Plaus,car just quit running going down the road. Had to have it towed home Won't start,turns over, just won't start,says Restricted Performance.

Sounds like it is some type of 'limp home' mode.
It could be anything. It might be as simple as a bad Fuel Pump Relay. When you turn the Key to the ON position (not Start) can you hear a little buzz for about 1 second? That would be your fuel pump running. You need to see if the engine is getting gas and spark.

Transmission fault yellow warning light on 2001 Jaguar Vanden Plas

get a rebuilt or used transmission. Jaguar says you don't have to change trans fluid because it should last the "life of the trans" which means it will die just like everything else. Fluid change will do no good. I just went thru this.

2001 XJ8 Vanden Plas engine light

I've had the same problem on my 2001. It turned out to be the battery. Apparently the voltage had dropped to the point that the computer began to malfunction. I'd first go to a battery shop and have it checked under load before looking for other solutions.
