You might be able to 'flush' the engine oil, with an engine oil flush product, then change both the oil and filter.
This might work, as the followers can become dirty over time and dirty oil, not being changed as offten as it should be, otherwise, if this fails, you will be looking at new parts.

How loud is it, did it suddenly get loud? they should have a light noise if gapped correct, easy to check, the covers come off with about 11 7/16 nuts, slide a feeler gauge blade a  few thou less than the specs under the cam when the lobe is pointing up, a few thou bug is fine but if it gets to 6 or more it will be noisy, look for a wearing cam if one gap is big, also check the chains for slop.If you are in the UK the library can get Haynes manuals in, keep it clean for them!

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.

How to remove a starter on a 86 jaguar xj6 vanden plas starter does not function


The starter motor is located on the passenger side ( left ) side of the motor. it is held onto the motor with two bolts. Before starting the removal process you must disconnect the battery by removing the ground lead. Under the car disconnect the battery feed wires on the solonoid mounted on the starter. Also disconnect the white with red tracer wire on the solonoid. This is the wire that comes from the starter relay on the firewall. Remove the upper bolt first. You can get at it from the top of the engine bay and then remove the bottom bolt. This starter is heavy. The starters on the later cars were a lot lighter. The starter will clear the engine. Be sure to test the new starter before you install it. Installation is reverse of the removal.

1987 xj6 ticking noise from right side of engine


My guess would be a sticking valve lifter. Buy a can of Gunk Motor Flush ( NOT radiator flush), use as directed, drain the oil and replace the filter, refill with clean oil, and see is the tick has gone away. Marvel Mystery Oil would work also if you can't find the Gunk.

1995 Jag XJ6 Rear Issues...need to fix ASAP.


My 1994 Vanden Plas makes the same noise. I know I need rear shocks. You do also!! Have the rear shocks replaced. Bilstein part number B46 1858 or Koni part  number 30 1377. Actually the Bilstein is the better shock and less expensive.
